QUINOA TABOULI

Tabouli is a Mediterranean favourite and in my opinion should be classified as a superfood! All the ingredients are packed with vitamins and minerals.  One of the key ingredients, parsley, has double as much iron as spinach and contains more vitamin C than most vegetables.  It also boosts immunity and cleanses the liver, kidney and gall bladder.  Quinoa, the other key ingredient is packed with fibre and protein and is also high in calcium and iron.

Besides this it tastes delicious and can be eaten with a variety of proteins or on its own with some avocado, hummus and pita bread!

I absolutely love a good piece of fresh white fish, especially a nice John Dory.  While it might be a less oily fish, it is still packed with omega 3, magnesium, iodine, selenium, and DHA and EPA.
