    I love recipes like this. I can make this ahead and have it as a quick lunch during the week. Although I swapped out the couscous for quinoa for an extra protein boost! I will use this recipe again and again.

    Sounds good, but one thing that drives me crazy is leaving out the nutritional content. As a diabetic, that's hugely important to me and most likely to lots of others.
