Healthy Quinoa Recipe!

Every single time we have a family party, my mom’s friend Pamela brings this amazing quinoa salad that I am literally obsessed with!  I finally took the initiative today to find out the recipe and make it for myself.  It is soo easy to make and definitely worth it :)  Here’s the recipe!

Ingredients (you can get all of these ingredients from Trader Joe’s!!)

  1. 2 cup quinoa (uncooked)
  2. 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  3. 3/4 cup dried cranberry
  4. 1/2 cup chopped red onions
  5. Olive oil drizzle
  6. splash of lime juice (my preference)
Directions:
  1. Place the quinoa in a saucepan with 4 cups of water.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until all water is absorbed (10-15 minutes).  
  2. Place the cooked quinoa in a bowl to cool, then place in the refrigerator.
  3. Once chilled, mix all ingredients, and stir.
  4. Ready to serve!
I recommend this salad for a healthy lunch, or it could be a side at the dinner table!  Quinoa is rich in protein, antioxidants, and contains all nine necessary amino acid supplements that your body needs.  
Today I woke up early, went to hot yoga with Sara, had Banzai Bowl for breakfast, headed to my friend Sawyer’s house to watch a scary movie (I absolutely hate scary movies), then came home to make dinner with my mom.  I’m pretty tired but now I’m thinking about going bowling hehe.  Strikeeee

    My ex-bf started playing mindgames with me this week, driving me crazy especially 2day so I went 2 the gym 2 blow some steam off (and yes, of course i met my HOT co-worker who teaches me math there….. embarassing)… Anyways, on my way home i passed by the store and somehow rememberd ur recipe… Sounded as it was fast enough 2 put 2gether right away (starving after running off my anger…) and it was! And delicious!!! I put in some… buljong in swedish as well with the quinoa, made it taste even better with some salt.

    The Banzai Bowl is actually very healthy! But it has a lot of natural sugars in it, so it is best to eat after a workout (when you are still burning calories) and before noon! :)

    Is the banzai bowl healthy? I always get so jealous when talk about it, it looks so yum!
