Making quinoa for dinner tonight? Save time and energy by cooking once and eating twice. Lori Bumbaco, RDN, CSO, LDN, Oncology Dietitian at NorthShore, suggests reserving some leftover quinoa for a nutritious and delicious time-saving snack. These no-bake bites are perfect on-the-go snacking, while boosting energy to avoid those “hangry” moments. They can be made gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free or nut-free with a tweak of some ingredients.
