  7. Use the quinoa as a base for meals throughout the week! Top with dressing, warm up, eat cold, fold in some cherry tomatoes, top with your favorite salsa or vegetable!
  8. Use the lentil taco meat as base in tacos, top on sweet potatoes, or as a main dish served with avocado. Top with salsa, pico de gallo, non-dairy cream cheese and fresh cilantro!
