1 cup whole-kernel corn 2 cans (16 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley 2 tablespoons minced red onions 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 teaspoon honey or brown sugar salt ground black pepper lettuce leaves
Cook a cup of quinoa (or another whole wheat grain, like barley or whole wheat couscous) the night before. The next day, combine 1/2 cup cooked quinoa with 1/2 cup black beans (if canned, look for less than 100 milligrams of sodium), 1/4 cup cooked corn (canned is fine), 1 ounce of feta cheese, chopped tomato and a dash of pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and mix together.
Quinoa Mac and Cheese. HOLY CHEESUS!!! Healthy and packed with protein (made with Almond Milk)...what if I added ground flaxseed into the panko crumbs for added fiber with the broccoli? There would be so much nutritional value that I wouldn't be able to feel guilty about the cheese :)
Peppers with quinoa, spinach and feta cheese
If apple pie and apple crisp had a baby...remember for thanksgiving
