Quinoa Salad

Tonights dinner - easy and yum! Works as a side dish to your protein, or can stand alone for your main dish.

You wll need:
~2/3c Quinoa
~1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
~2 cucumbers
~1 bottle of italian dressing *read the ingredients list carefully for allergens!
~Mrs. Dash (optional)
~Fresh grated parmesean cheese (optional)

Ahead of time:
~I made 2/3c of quinoa in my rice cooker with 1-2/3c of water
~Once it was done, I put it in a bowl to chill in the fridge

About half an hour before dinner, chop:
~washed cherry or grape tomatoes in half
~washed cucumbers in quarters, then in chunks

~toss qunioa, tomatoes, and cucumbers in a bowl and add 1/2-2/3 of the bottle of italian dressing, depending on how dry you want your salad.
~Store tightly covered in the fridge for up to 2 days.

When you are ready to serve:
~garnish with a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash and/or
~a few pinches of grated parm


Allergy notes: always read your ingredient labels carefully, but my italian dressing, Mrs. Dash and parmesean cheese were gluten free!

Sitting down to a late breakfast before heading out to do some errands, and just wanted to share - just because we are gf doesn't mean we have to miss out or eat weird stuff!

This is 2 eggs with a bit of extra egg white seasoned with garlic powder and seasoned salt, and topped with a bit of cheese. Toast is Udi's for 17g of carb for two slices, topped with peanut butter, and a mug of coffee and cream/Splenda. Filling, a bit of carbs, good protein, and to round it out you could add some veggies to your eggs. Start to finish - including waffle for the toddler - was less than 20 minutes!!

Yum. Happy Sunday everyone!
