Mixed Up Quinoa Salad-Naturally gluten-free and 100 % delicious!

Today I am way beyond thrilled to direct you away from my blog {in just a bit!}, and over to Lite Bite, the healthy living blog created by the oh, so lovely and oh, so  talented home cook and mother of two, Sanjeeta KK.

If you are not familiar with Lite Bite, please head on over {Wait, wait! Not yet!} and get to know a little bit more about Sanjeeta and her light and healthy recipes created for all of us who “are short on time, yet value {our} health.”

I am truly honored to join the ranks among Sanjeeta’s fabulously healthy guest bloggers by sharing a recipe along with my  healthy living secrets with her readers on her AFBHLS {Awesome Food Bloggers and Their Healthy-Living Secrets} blog series.

So, NOW without further adieu, please click here to head on over to Lite Bite to say “Hi” to Sanjeeta and check out my healthy living secrets, along with my favorite “go-to” gluten-free party dish “Mixed Up Quinoa Salad.”
