Well this whole food week has gone pretty good. I have really tried to put a lot of thought into my meals. I usually start the day with a shake, then I have a lunch with a lot of fruits and veggies and maybe like a string cheese or something.
I ended up making some awesome steamed asparagus and baked chicken with a lemon, garlic quinoa! I just kind of played around with some ingredients a I had so we didn't just have plain quinoa, it turned out really great! Super easy and an awesome healthy side for an awesome dinner.
Whole food living can be difficult, especially when you work or are chasing kiddos everywhere. I'm a big fan of pre planning and even pre- packaging your lunches...it's easy and all ready for you. The number one tip to remember is to stay as close to nature as possible and you'll be golden!
Lemon Garlic Quinoa
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups of water
Add quinoa and water to a medium sized sauce pan. Cover and bring to a boil. Add 1/2 lemon and garlic clove. Reduce to a simmer for another 10-15 minutes until water is all absorbed. Serve warm~ Enjoy
