Warm Mediterranean Quinoa Salad With Sweet Corn, Chili and Thai Basil
As a college student time and money are both valuable and sparse for me but that doesn’t mean I can’t eat great healthy food! Although I believe that food & nutrition is one of the most important things to spend your budget on, eating healthy CAN fit in absolutely any budget. All these meals are healthy, (mostly) vegetarian, filled with protein, easy to make and incredibly affordable! Best of all, they don’t taste like health food, they just taste good!
