Apple Chicken & Gorgonzola Quinoa Salad

Let this meal refresh you! It’s amazingly healthy and fills you up without feeling so stuffed you can’t not wear sweatpants for the rest of the day. Actually, I think I may have been wearing sweatpants when I ate this once. Well whatever. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing as long as you’re getting to eat this pure tastiness.
