What is quinoa? Pronounced keen-wah, this grain-like seed is full of protein and calcium (who needs meat or milk?!) Very versatile and can be used like rice, and it's gluten-free. Wanna learn more? Check out my article on Organic Authority.
Way back in 2009 Nik Tyler (aka, the man who inspired me to be vegan) went to "two transformative weeks at The Rancho De Sol-Ph Miracle Ranch" and came back with incredible enthusiasm and energy. So much so that he sent me daily emails of the foods he had been making, with beautiful pictures. I posted these on Eco-Vegan Gal and they are some of the most popular recipes on the site.
The gluten-free soy-free diet is going really well - I feel wonderful. But it is a little tricky trying to keep my meals varied and exciting. I went to Whole Foods last night and was in the mood for something Mexican, so I grabbed some things and threw this dish together. Though it is really simple, it's insanely delicious. The tortillas have a great flavor and texture, the Daiya melts wonderfully, and the salsa gives it kick and the satisfaction of fresh veggies.
