Quick Wit Quinoa Salad – Thanks Lauren!

This is a delicious salad courtesy of my step daughter Lauren.  I asked her to take a photo of it so I could post it on my blog.

Lauren will tell you that this recipe is courtesy of Dr. Daniel Amen.  Dr. Amen is a psychiatrist specializing in brain scanning and brain health via nutrition.

The name, Quick Wit, is due in part to the wonderful protein make-up of quinoa.  Proteins break down into amino acids which we rely on to make brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.  It’s these neurotransmitters that give us our quick wit.

And when you add in the colorful array of veggies, you’ve got a salad that’s a nutritional power house.

So make up a big batch of Quick Wit Quinoa Salad and feast on it all week.

For the recipe and information on Dr. Amen please visit Lauren’s blog:  http://sathierajourneytohealth.wordpress.com/2011/10/03/quick-wit-quinoa-salad/
