It can be a challenge to find healthful food when you are travelling. The food that is available on the plane is typically heavy, meat ridden and awful. Even finding something healthy in the airport can be a challenge. Vegetarian options tend to be heavy with dairy or completely bland. I’ve stopped fighting the battle to find healthy options in the airport, and I’ve taken to carrying on a bento box meal whenever possible.
This quinoa salad is packed with healthy veggies and flavor. It combines classic Mediterranean flavors like olives, lemon, olive oil, parsley and feta. I’ve added some shrimp in this version as well. This is vegetarian if you omit the shrimp and vegan if you omit the feta.
