Quinoa Salad

Having bariatric surgery limited my amount of food choices. While I could eat many things, I found that I could not eat many of the culinary options I’d grown accustomed to, which lead me on a journey. I had to find new selections that would allow me to enjoy my foods, but were diverse enough […]
