Quinoa and White Bean Salad

I’ve had this recipe in my drafts for awhile now (3 years to be exact, hence the poor photography) and with how busy my week has been, I thought it would be appropriate to share another meal that you can make in minutes for when your life gets busy, too!

It can be a complete meal on a less physically active day and on those where you’re moving more, you can of course throw an egg (or 2) on top!
