Red Quinoa-Stuffed Artichokes
If you’re looking for a meal that’s easy to make, targets your metabolism from different angles, and is only 150 calories, look no further. Red-quinoa-stuffed artichokes are not only delicious but full of vinegar, plant protein, and fiber, all of which keeps your metabolism revved up. Dr. Aviva Romm and nutritionist Maya Feller have found a few ways to customize this dish and make it even more impactful. You can add cooked onion and garlic since these alliums can help your body metabolize fat, lower blood sugar, and lower cholesterol as well. You can also mix navy beans into the quinoa to keep you fuller longer and add more protein and fiber to the dish.
