Survival of the fittest, right?
Which means part of being prepared is being fit.
So I have had to find ways to work on getting fit.
Unfortunately sugar is a major weakness, in fact I think my emotional attachment to sugar is a genetic disorder.
But my sister gave me this fantastic recipe which is filling and very healthy.
Doesn't this look Delicious??

-I don't like cilantro so I completely omit it.
-Chop up some lettuce and spoon some of the quinoa mixture along with sliced grapes and top with your favorite dressing.
-I also like to add toasted almond slices.
-The remaining quinoa mixture I put in a tupperware in my fridge and add it to a salad for lunch everyday.
