Quinoa and butternut squash salad

July 11, 2017

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of salads and don't really like butternut squash.... However this salad is pretty darn delicious. 

 

I tend to have it at lunch as it's got lots of great long lasting carbohydrates to give me energy for the rest of the day.

 

Portion size is dependent as it can be used it as a main or a side!
