This recipe is brought to you straight from the Ultimate Reset. It is perfect for lunch or dinner. I ate it for dinner and doubled the recipe for 2 lunches. The Quinoa is a great source of protein. It is high in protein, calcium, and iron, quinoa is a great alternative to rice. It is found in the grocery store near the rice.
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Himalayan salt or Bragg Liquid Aminos to taste
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp finely minced fresh parsley
1 tbsp finely minced fresh mint leaves
1/4 large ripe tomato, diced
1/4 large cucumber, peeled and diced
2 tbsp chopped pitted kalamata olives
Toss quinoa with olive oil, salt or bragg liquid aminos, and lemon juice, mixing well. Gently fold in parsley and mint, followed by remaining ingredients. Cover and chill for 1 hour. Serves 1.
Enjoy this lunch with 1/3 cup hummus and a raw vegetable plate. For example, 10 baby carrots, 8 to 10 grape tomatoes, 10 slices red bell pepper and 5 string beans.
