Here's another recipe I made up as I went along. It is gluten-free and soy-free. Did you know that quinoa has more protein than any other grain?
I'm on a mission to cook more for myself in order to save money, eat healthier, and reduce packaging. Now that I'm a gluten, soy, & sugar free diet I have to be more creative. Last night I put together a great dish with 3 elements - it was flavorful, satisfying, and extremely healthy.
Minted Quinoa with Pine Nuts, adapted from Whole Foods recipe:
- I don't drink/use it fast enough and most of it goes bad
- I try to avoid soy
Here's a delicious, healthy recipe for vegetables that is quick, easy, and involves no cooking or baking that will give you tons of energy and nutrition: green juice! All you need is a juicer (such as the Omega 8004 like I have), a bunch of your favorite green veggies, and about 10 minutes of time. It's a great idea to have it for breakfast because it's a natural energizer and mood booster, so it sets you up for a great, happy day. (Jump to the bottom of the post for the video recipe)
