Top 8 Free Spinach Mushroom Quinoa

Having nuts and dairy completely eliminated from my diet, my protein options are limited. While I am a meat-eater, I can definitely get tired of turkey sandwiches for lunch, and chicken for dinner. I truly miss the days where I could have string cheese or yogurt for snacks. Nuts were never an option for me, so I do not know what I am missing out on with those…

I love creating a new recipe that has a few, simple ingredients. I am not limited even though I have allergies. This recipe is one of those great options, because it is healthy, and top 8 free!

This allergy-friendly recipe is the perfect solution to my protein dilemma…and quinoa is the hero!

Not only is this recipe simple and delicious, it is a great option to get protein! If you are not restricted by all top 8 allergens, then I suggest serving this with pita bread and hummus. Whole wheat pita bread is another great option for protein.
