Quinoa With Roasted Pumpkin, Zucchini and Basil Pesto

What’s good about it:

Quinoa is gluten free and has a low GI of 53 +  it’s  a complete protein which means that it contains all the essential amino acids that the body needs for repair.  It’s also a good source of lysine, an amino acid important for tissue growth and repair, which makes it a perfect meal after a hard workout. Your body needs protein for repair and quality carbs to replenish glycogen and quinoa is a good source of both.

When I’m pushed for time and need to create a meal that’s quick, healthy + purely delicious, I make zucchini fritters. What I love about these is that they not only taste great but they marry with so many of my favourite ingredients such as baby spinach, lemon + avocado. Enjoy them hot or cold  – perfect for breakfast, picnics or  take to work lunch boxes.
