Good Evening All,
Today was a mighty busy day for me between working until 4:00, getting to my detox appointment (only 2 more weeks to go! WOOT) by 5:00, sitting in traffic at 6:00 to get home for 6:45…..I was so hungry when I got home I was so grateful I had leftovers from last night I could just pop into the oven.
My days have been consisting of all raw up until dinner and this is because of the importance of eating raw fruit and veg of course, but also because I do enjoy my squash and sweet potatoes and some grains.
Tonight’s (and last night’s) dinner was Quinoa with Veggies.
Easy Quinoa Dinner
2 cups dry Quinoa
4 cups water
2 med tomatoes
1 yellow pepper
1 big bunch of broccoli
1 red onion
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tbs EVOO
1 tsp curry powder (sometimes I add more)
Before I put the quinoa into the pot I added a bit of EVOO and cumin seed and sautéed them up a little. Once they started turning brown I added in red onion and some organic curry.
Then in went the Quinoa and water and some peas.
When the Quinoa was done cooking I added the diced tomatoes, Broccoli, a Orange Pepper. I tossed it all together and then added some fresh avocado on top.
It was quick and easy and yummy! Quinoa is a staple food of mine I always have on hand in case I need a quick dinner.
