EASY QUINOA SALAD
Posted on 09/30/2015 by Kulae
In my work as a health coach, the biggest challenge I see people have when it comes to making healthy food choices, is being prepared. What do I mean by that? Being prepared means carving out a little time each week to make sure you have all of your healthy meals and snacks, not only on hand, but prepared and ready to grab when you are pressed for time. Last night, I made a lovely quinoa salad. The salad itself only has 5 ingredients, took less then 20 minutes to make, and is enough food to make sure that I have at least three lunches covered for the week. I also made a large garden salad, some chicken cutlets and some summer berry chia jam so that I had a little variety to chose from during the week. All of this prep work took about an hour, and I’m set for the week. I won’t have to cook again until Friday! As usual, everything I made is gluten, dairy and sugar free. The quinoa salad also happens to be vegan. This is clean eating at it’s prepared best ;)
Here is the recipe for the Easy Quinoa Salad that I made last night.
Easy Quinoa Salad
2 large handfuls baby spinach, washed
2 carrots diced
2 celery stalks, diced
a handful of fresh, chopped parsley
40 ml extra virgin olive oil
10 ml Raw Apple Cider vinegar
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper, to taste
