WIAW, Quinoa...

I actually had some new eats this week, not just boring same old foods this week. For my WIAW post I thought I would talk about what I did with the cheesy broccoli quinoa I made and talked about last Wednesday.

Main dish on Wednesday, but a side dish on Thursday.

Paired with pas and fake chicken nuggets. You can't have too many green foods on your plate.

On Sunday morning I added some to a fritatta that I baked.

I love fritattas. What ould be easier than throwing some egg whites, chia seeds and whatever veggies you want and bake for about 30 minutes. You can eat it by itself, put it on an English muffin, or like I did on Sunday, make a breakfast burrito.

Half an avocado, quinoa fritatta, a little cheddar cheese and salsa. I am seriously loving avocados now. Why did it take me so long to discover my love of avocados?

I love quinoa. It's always good to love a food that is packed full of good stuff like protein, iron, calcium and potassium.

It wasn't all healthy last week.

I went a little over board with the mini Reeces pieces and M&Ms, but it was still really good.

I picked up a boxed brownie mix yesterday. Sometimes you just need brownies, but you don't want to go to all the trouble of making them from scratch. I did add extra semi sweet chocolate chips. Yummy!

So there you have it, another week of eats. It is almost May! Next week I should have some pre and post race week eats. Oh how I love race week.

  1. I LOVE Reeces pieces! Especially when they get hot and a little melty inside...same with M & M's. I actually microwave them for 15 seconds and them pop them in my mouth. YUM!
