Gut Healing, Skin Loving Quinoa Prawn Risotto: Gluten Free and Full of Nutrients to Make you Glow!

Quinoa, the superfood nutrition powerhouse while is not only high in protein but also one of the few plant based foods containing all nine essential amino acids! Combined with the endless benefits of bone broth, this risotto is easy, delicious and full of nutrients to glow! Being a natural source of collagen, bone broth is said to restore joints by building cartilage which degenerates as we age, support gut health, reduce inflammation, support healthy skin and immune system…i could go on buttt google it!!Now some wonderful people make their own, id love to but I also like convenience, I use a dehydrated broth powder which is so easy, just add water and bam you have your broth. It’s readily available in health food stores and online šŸ™‚ it’s also way cheaper to buy as powder then those 2 serve packets (prices are ridiculous)
