Nut & Seed Quinoa Salad with Cranberries

I love a flavorful quinoa salad I can prepare in advance during the summertime. I can serve it up with some grilled veggies and chicken or fish…  and dinner is served! My husband, Russ loves this recipe!

This quinoa salad is super easy to whip up and has the wonderful combination of flavors of cranberries, almonds, pine nuts and pepitas! Nuts and seeds are rich in magnesium, an important nutrient that many Americans fall short on…and one that has anti-inflammatory benefits.  Yummo!

Earlier this week, I took a lunch break from work and visited with a friend who’s pup had 9 puppies! As you may know, I am a big lab fan.  Here’s a pic of two of the puppies.

It’s Thursday… and the weekend is almost here!! Last night, I spoke at the Crohn’s and Colitis support group at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on diet for inflammatory bowel disease, to learn more on this topic check out my recent post here.  Driving into the city at rush hour is not much fun…but it always feels good to volunteer.  Tomorrow, I am off to Maine to spend some time with my friends from Junior High! I hope you are gearing up for something fun this weekend too!
