I got my quinoa, coconut flakes, coconut oil, and pumpkin seeds from Vitacost. Use this link for money off your first order.

1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tablespoon coconut balsamic vinegar (can use regular too)
1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
1. Cook quinoa according to package directions.
2. Peel and dice sweet potato into 3/4" cubes. Add to salted boiling water and cook about 10 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
3. Heat a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Add pumpkin seeds and cook until golden on both sides (be careful not to burn them!).
4. Add all ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. Add salt to taste. Eat warm or cold!
