The Holidays are fast approaching and with that comes a great deal of family dinners filled with delicious, not-good-for-your-diet foods! If you are planning to wow your entourage with your slim figure and come out of this Holiday season without a few extra pounds on your tushie, it's a great idea to start being careful of what you are feeding your body! Be mindful now and the damage shouldn't be so bad in the end!
With that in mind, I wanted to share with you one of my super easy and healthy salad. It's one of my favorite to have for lunch as it is tasty, filling and filled with great nutritious ingredients.
Here's what you'll need :
1 box of quinoa
1 bell pepper (the orange ones are my favorites)
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes
1/2 a lime
Salt & Pepper
Here are the simple steps you need to follow :
1) Cook your quinoa according to the instructions you will find on the box.
2) While the quinoa is cooking chop the cucumber, bell pepper and cherry tomatoes into little pieces.
3) Mix both the cooked quinoa and chopped vegetables.
4) Add a little bit of olive oil, lime juice and salt/pepper.
You are done! It's that simple! It's now time to enjoy!
Let me know if you try it and tweet me a picture of your salad @ByourBself ! xoxo
