Very Berry Protein Muffins

This is one of those recipes that took me forever to get right. You'd think muffins would be easy to whip up.

Quinoa Tabbouleh Dip (Gluten Free!)

This quinoa tabbouleh recipe is a little different from your average tabbouleh because: A) I don't like parsley, so I substitute chopped spinach instead. (Way tastier!)
