July photo day 8

Today's photo is lunch. It may not look like much, but it's super healthy for you. A serving of this amazing little grain, a 1/2c. cooked, has 6 grams of fiber & 6 grams of protein. It's called quinoa, pronounced keen-wa, and if you haven't tried it yet you absolutely should. Gone are the days of choosing between rice or potatoes. Now you have a new side to love. Enjoy!

Quinoa Salad

Red Quiona (I used 1c. dry = 2c. cooked)
White Beans (Canned or Soaked overnight, whichever you prefer)
Diced Cucumber, Diced Red Onion & Sun dried Tomatoes
Salt, Pepper, EVOO & Lemon Juice to taste

Those are just the ingredients I used. Have fun & choose your own if you want.
