Kathryn Budig’s Healthy Quinoa Recipe

We love Kathryn Budig for many, many reasons - her Aim True yoga practice, her infectious laughter, her #nostretchypants style, and her love of food. She recently posted a qunioa recipe with our friends at The Pure Bar and we just had to share the deliciousness.
