I really enjoyed last night’s dinner. It was filling, delicious and good for me too. Feel free to play around with the veggies in this Greek Quinoa Salad.

I served it alongside grilled chicken breasts but it would be tasty on it’s own too!

I went to a school meeting at Starbucks so I grabbed my favorite Skinny Vanilla Latte.

I went to Cardio Muscle class and had a great workout. You know you’re going to be sore when you leave the class with already sore muscles.

Next was errand running and a quick stop at Subway for lunch.

Turkey and ham with avocado and lots of veggies.

I just got back from taking the kids to see the movie “Planes”. It was cute. :) Enjoy your Friday night!

Are you a fan of quinoa?


  1. Welcome back! I love quinoa. I cook quinoa in chicken stock instead of water. This makes the quinoa so flavorful. You should try Iowa Girl Eats' Black Bean, Quinoa, and Citrus Salad: http://www.iowagirleats.com/recipes/?recipe_id=6005715 My only change is I just squeeze some fresh lime juice over the top, and omit the lime vinaigrette. ENJOY!
