Quinoa with roasted vegetables

I often get asked how I eat through my week to stay balanced and healthy. This Roasted Vegetable Quinoa is something that I make at the beginning of the week and helps me keep on track with good eating habits.

It’s hearty and filling, and most importantly super easy to make.
