I feel like I go through healthy eating kicks all of the time. I eat really good then I eat really crappy. Oddly enough, I love vegetables but sometimes I get stuck in ruts where I hardly make them at all! The other day I was starving for lunch and chose to make a healthy decision and create something with what I had rather than a PB & J sandwich!

I sautéed veggies and paired them with quinoa. It was so. SO.SOOO good!! Not only did it taste awesome, it held me over all day (even though dinner) so I didn’t snack on junk food! Double win!
The great thing about this dish is that it can be a side dish or a main dish. Add in some protein and you are good to go for dinner!
- ½c dry quinoa
- 1c chicken stock
- 2 tbs butter
- 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
- 1 green pepper sliced
- 1 broccoli head
- ½ onion sliced
- salt and pepper to taste
- Bring quinoa, chicken stock and butter to a boil then let simmer for 15 minutes or until fluffy
- While quinoa is cooking heat EVOO in pan and stir fry veggies seasoning with salt and pepper
- Mix together and serve
