Fall Colors Quinoa Bowl

Fall has always been my favorite season. Something in the air makes everything feel fresher, crisper, and lovelier. The colors on the trees light up the world around, and the mountains seem to glow in the stunning fall light.

Fall starts the transition from warm weather, to cooler weather and shorter days. It’s a time when I start to crave more grounding, cooked foods as opposed to all the raw fruits and salads I love in the summer.

This quinoa bowl has been a favorite of late, as it is full of flavor, color, and nutrients. It’s colors reflect those of the beautiful fall surroundings, and there’s a million ways to make it your own.
