Meal Idea: Quinoa Salad
Moms always share dinner ideas, but we hardly ever talk about breakfast or lunch ideas. This salad is super easy and very healthy. I like to serve it with Mary's Gone Crackers, shown above. As I have mentioned before, I am trying really hard to limit gluten and make our snacks/meals more diverse. These wanna be crackers are so healthy. They are made up of brown rice, quinoa, flax seed, sesame seeds, etc. No oil, no gluten, all natural, healthy ingredients. When I first started giving them to the kids, they did not like them at all. After seeing me eat them, they decided to give them a try. Dipped in hummus or quinoa salad, they closely resemble a cracker. Warning: These do not taste like a Ritz cracker! They do taste different. My goal is to help my body learn to crave new/healthy foods. It requires work/effort/time/money to make your health a priority. We all like to complain (including me!) about how hard it is to make positive changes in our diet/life, but in the end, it is worth it.
I eyeball the ingredients.
