1

I have spent the last 7 years using food to heal. There were days I had no idea how I was going to keep up with my super strict diet. I was sick of broccoli and chicken and needed some inspo. Well, we’re no longer in January. How are your new year’s resolutions going? I know the importance of finding different foods to prevent boredom. While these are staples in my home, you may find these recipes new and delicious.

Janeris’ Famous Quinoa Salad

This recipe is an all-time favorite. I’ve even been asked to make it for friends so they can take it to their events. I love lime so you’ll notice a lot of my recipes have lime. You can substitute lime for whatever dressing you like but you should probably taste this before you knock it. Similar to the mango salsa above, this recipe has lime, cilantro, bell peppers, and onions. 

Ingredients for 4:
4c Cooked quinoa
1/2 Cucumber
1/2 Red and orange bell pepper
Bunch of cilantro
1/4 red onion
1-2 Lime
1 tsp Olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/4 cup of Sunflower seeds (optional)

This one’s so easy and quick to make. I make it for breakfast and my kids love this. It’s roughly sliced broccoli, red onions, carrots, and beets. Stir fry it in a little coconut oil and salt. We eat it with chicken or sausage but you can try this with anything. It’s sweet and crunchy. This is a must-try.
