These are so very fun, and there are more to come!!!
It's even fun in black and white
I used to eat Yogourt every day for lunch. Like for years. After a painful scare with Kidney Stones, my daughter in law told me about Apple Cider Vinegar. Yuck. It apparently helps with all kinds of things if you can get it past your nose..........
Then I had a Quinoa salad in a little cafe downtown and was instantly a fan of the stuff. I had never actually cooked Quinoa myself, but gave it a shot to see if I could make something similar to what I had enjoyed so much.
I've blown through a whole bottle of apple cider vinegar just with this one recipe. It's so crispy and fresh ! If I don't eat this for a couple of days, I find myself craving it.
My family is wondering where the yogourt eating, muffin wielding women went that they used to know ! She's gone......
..........and the great thing? After switching to this for lunch I dropped 10 pounds. Without trying.
Not long ago, we had about 14 for lunch. Some of the men had seconds, and then thirds. There wasn't a sniff of it left. I was a little upset : )
I thought I would share how I make it here in case you would like to try yourself. I serve this as a side dish to anything and everything !
It makes a lot, so start with a big bowl
1 cup of organic Quinoa, cooked (this fluffs up to quite a lot)
1 small bag blanched almonds, whole or slivered
1 113g bag of organic dried cranberries
1 cup chopped broccoli
1 yellow pepper diced
1 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup feta cheese chopped small (cow feta, not the stinky stuff)
1 apple diced
1/3 cup blood orange infused Olive oil
2 tblsp. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp. salt Whisk all these ingredients together and drizzle over
1/2 tsp. pepper ingredients in bowl. Gently fold into mixture.
1 clove of garlic chopped fine Chill and serve.
1 tsp. honey
Hope you enjoy : )
