Wholesome Quinoa Jambalaya Recipe
They know it's important to refuel after your workout. Here's a recipe that matches the first meal bill: Weight Training. We took a classic New Orleans dish, Jambalaya, and neatly revamped it. Throw in various fresh vegetables for a good dose of carbohydrates, fiber, and immune-boosting antioxidants. Here are three neat improvements:
- Quinoa is a quick-cooking, high-protein, high-fiber whole grain.
- Fatty andouille sausage is being replaced with lean chicken sausage.
- Additional protein and zinc come from the super-lean, omega-3 rich shrimp
