The Best Quinoa Bowl for a Healthy Diet

Quinoa is a popular food for a healthy diet. It’s protein packed, high in fiber and gluten-free. It’s also nutrient rich with B vitamins, calcium, vitamin E and other antioxidants. Creating a Quinoa Bowl is a fun and easy way to add this super food to your healthy diet. I love this recipe for a quinoa bowl with sweet potato, corn and a Greek yogurt dressing. It’s both sweet and savory.

Benefits of Sweet Potato for a Healthy Diet

In addition to the quinoa, sweet potatoes are rich in nutrients. I love that sweet potatoes are also easy to find and inexpensive to add to my healthy recipes. Sweet potatoes are a good source of B,  C  and D vitamins. They also contain iron, magnesium and potassium. Although they are sweet, they do not cause blood sugar spikes.
