Quinoa, black bean & sweet potato salad with avocado

The work week is finally halfway over, hooray! And what better way to start off a new month than with a little health kick! I made a tasty quinoa salad for lunch today and enjoyed it along with a maple yogurt. Yum!

Here’s how to make it: combine about 1 cup cooked red or white quinoa (1/4 cup dry), 1/2 a sweet potato, diced & roasted, 1/4 avocado, cubed and 1/4 can black beans, rinsed & drained. Dress with the juice of one lime, salt & pepper and you’re good to go! All of these components keep for at least a few days, so I made 4 servings and topped with the avocado/lime juice in the morning so it doesn’t brown. Enjoy!
