It's high in fiber, iron, and vitamin C, so you can see all the healthy reasons why actress Jennifer Aniston loves this simple quinoa salad. Think of it as a bulked-up tabbouleh, since detoxifying parsley lays the base of the greens, while a scoop of quinoa and diced avocado provide over 60 percent of your daily recommended fiber. With hydrating cucumbers and refreshing tomatoes added to the mix, this salad would be a lovely light lunch to pack for work.
