I'm back!

I had a wonderful, exciting, bonding time off with my children.  they inspire, engage, me and I love them very much.  I'm very lucky to have them to teach me life-lessons, make me laugh, intigue me and get me active.

This recipe below would be perfect for a Fourth of July picnic you may be hosting or attending.  Give it a try.  You can find quinoa at most grocery stores or health food stores. 

My trainer posted this recipe and I think it looks amazing.

Give it a try!

Quinoa Fruit Salad

This refreshing summer salad is made with quinoa. Quinoa is a gluten-free, protein-packed seed. It's a complete protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. Add a side of lean protein to your salad and you've got a highly nutritious, balanced meal.

Here's what you need...

  • 3/4 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 1-15 fresh mint leaves, minced
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • optional dash of salt and pepper
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup green grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  1. In a small bowl combine the yogurt, 1 tablespoon lime juice and the mint. Pour over the cooked quinoa and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In another bowl combine the fruit, agave nectar and remaining lime juice.
  3. Cover and refrigerate each bowl for 2 hours, to allow the flavors to emerge, then combine the fruit with the quinoa and serve.
