Recipe: quinoa salad stuffed avocado

*disclaimer* *I stole this, unabashedly, from Pinterest.*

I have a couple epiphanies per month. These have included:

zucchini lasagna

tofu scramble

pumpkin mac and cheese

barbecue sandwiches

The rest of menu planning is lying, stealing and pillaging. The best you can do is acknowledge and give credit, where credit is due.

Thanks, bloglovin, for this recipe!
