I love easy + healthy + this is both! Such a quick prep time + so deliciously nutritious.
When you work a full-time job, you don’t have a lot of time to mess around or much energy to waste. I’m not entirely sure where it all goes. If anyone could help a sista with figuring that out, it’d be much appreciated!
The last thing I want for lunch is some fast food or some microwavable laboratory experiment. Sometimes I take leftovers but I’m not really into that whole microwave thing (for health reasons) so I try to stay away from it.
I like to prep this the night before my work week starts that way I have it ready to go. It’s seriously so yummy and so filling!
Greek Quinoa Salad:
- 1 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa
- 1 cucumber
- 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
- 1 cup kalamata olives
- feta cheese (leave this out for vegan option)
- ground black pepper
- This awesome Greek dressing or dressing of choice (I like to use Bragg’s Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar + olive oil)
Prep your quinoa as directed. Once cooked, chill. While the quinoa is chilling, chop your cucumbers, tomatoes + kalamata olives. Combine these with the quinoa. Once it’s all chilled, serve atop a handful of kale. Sprinkle on some feta + dress.
I usually stop after the quinoa, veggies + olives have been mixed together. I store this in a container in the fridge + every morning before work I combine it with kale, feta + fresh ground black pepper. I have a set of olive oil + Bragg’s vinegar at work. Once I’m hungry for lunch, I just add a little olive oil + vinegar! You’ll make your coworkers so jeal. It’s just mmm mmm good. + did I mention how healthy it is?!
