Hi. I reacted to the Quinoa salad today and I am suppose to have it again for a couple of days. What could be my alternative?

No- do not have it again if you reacted to it. If you are sure it was the quinoa, then you should avoid it. You can substitute any of the other non-gluten grains for quinoa and just make up another salad dish to substitute (or, if you do better with protein meals you could make a chicken or something else to eat with some veggies during the meals when you would have had that salad).
