Quinoa Feta Salad

When you are tired and don’t want to eat a full meal, salad is a great choice to refresh and boost up your tired body. But, salad could lack some important nutrition: protein. 

I am vegetarian and when I went to see a doctor, she said my blood is showing I’m anemia, so I need to take some iron supplement and protein to let my body create more blood. 

Having a symptom of anemia is hard because you feel dizzy and fatigue, so here is the best salad recipe to refresh and fuel up at the same time!
