Mushroom Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl

A bowl of mushroom teriyaki quinoa 

Do you love quinoa? I sure do. It's so easy to cook and light on your body. Quinoa is high is fiber and protein, which is something I look for when grocery shopping. Protein and fiber keep my digestion system working well.  I love how quinoa can be paired with just about anything, sweet or sour and it still tastes amazing!
