Vegetable Quinoa Salad

Vegetable Quinoa Salad

Vegetable quinoa salad is packed with fresh garden vegetables, loads of protein, and a lot of flavor.  It would make a great side dish or even a stand-alone lunch.

In my combined effort to eat healthier and clean out my fridge, I put together this fresh vegetable quinoa salad. It was the perfect way to use those little bits of fresh veggies that seem to hang out in my refrigerator produce drawer until they rot.

I have to ask: Is it just me that forgets about the delicious produce hiding in my refrigerator, or does that happen to you too? I really need to sharpen my long term memory skills.
Anyway, if you’re not familiar with quinoa, allow me to fill your brain with some food fuel.

18 Amazing Healthy Almond Recipes

Today, we’re going to get nutty and talk about almonds. I’m also going to share some of my favorite healthy almond recipes with you. Wait. That’s only partially true. There are some very delicious but quite unhealthy recipes in this collection, too. You’ll want to make them anyway. Trust me.
Just eat them in moderation. You know, where you just have a couple of bites and then hide the rest for later…
…Or eat the entire pan of the decadent, fattening recipes and then run for 5 miles to work off the calories. Whichever is easier for you.

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

If you’re a resolution maker who vowed to eat healthier this year, this recipe might very well be your saving grace when it comes to snacks and desserts, especially as we head into a Summer of swimsuits and picnics with fattening foods.
It can be a challenge to find a happy balance between eating right and still enjoying the indulgent foods of Summer. I always make sure to have a few healthy snacking options on hand. A tray full of healthy veggies and yogurt dip are a great way to snack without indulgence, and appetizers like deviled tuna eggs are great to have around, too. But what happens when it’s time for dessert? Well, this is what happens!
