Keep it colorful with a fruit and veggie salad. Enjoy as an afternoon snack or add a little meat for a great meal. Although quinoa breaks from strict paleo, this staple food of the Inca contains more protein than rice or wheat, so it's probably worth the rule-breaking.


  • ½ cup quinoa, cooked
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • 1 cucumber (8-1/4") cucumber, chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 lemon yields lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
