Quinoa Salad with chicken and paprika

This recipe is balanced: quinoa provides carbohydrates. These are essential to provide us with energy throughout the day. The beans provide, in turn, our need for vitamins and fiber (for our transit). Poultry contains the proteins necessary for cell renewal and our sense of satiety. In addition, poultry is low in fat and therefore reduces the saturated fatty acids often present in our diet. Finally, olive oil brings unsaturated fats for the proper functioning of our fabrics. The spices are used to make various flavors, without changing the nutritional balance.
