Palm Beach Athletic Wear is all about looking your best and keeping healthy through a balanced diet and exercise. While
having fun and wandering around working on some new pins for Pinterest, Zoe, our resident Fitness Stylist, came upon this really interesting recipe that sounds amazingly tasty and perfect for our Annual Palm Beach Athletic Wear Staff BBQ.
If you haven’t tried quinoa yet, you are missing out on a really hearty, yet healthy food. We’ll have to head to the local health food store for some organic goldenberries but, all the other ingredients are already in our small office kitchen!
