What I ate today featuring QUINOA

Tonight I wanted something quick, simple and filling for dinner. I found some red quinoa in my cabinet and decided to just make the whole bag and experiment with some quinoa creations. After boiling the water and cooking the quinoa, I divided the batch in half. One for dinner and the other for an experimental lunch/snack!

For the dinner portion, I sautéed up some fresh shrimp with garlic and olive oil and mixed in some fresh spinach.

For my lunch portion, I chopped up half a granny smith apple, half a cup of walnuts and added some dried cranberries. I tossed all of this in about two tablespoons of a balsamic vinaigrette. This is more of a cold salad but you can eat it either way.

Both were delicious and both are quick and easy ways for you to utilize  a wonderful source a iron, protein and fiber in your diet! Go give it a whirl and get your quinoa on! Email me at gosweetandskinny@gmail.com with your favorite way to serve quinoa!
