Quinoa and Apple Salad with Almonds and Mint

Quinoa and Apple Salad

Apple picking is a fun fall activity, but often leaves you asking, what am I going to do with all these apples? This recipe will help you use up extra apples. Apples are a good source of soluble fiber which may help lower cholesterol and certain cancers. They also contain a variety of phytonutrients that have been shown to help improve heart health and immunity. Quinoa is a nutrient dense grain that is a good source of protein, fiber, phosphorus and magnesium. The almonds and olive oil offer heart healthy unsaturated fats. The combination of protein, fiber, and unsaturated fat make this a satiating dish for those trying to lose weight, improve blood sugar levels or just eat healthy!
