In SALADS

Simple, easy recipes are a go-to for me!

With two kids who are always hungry when dinner’s still 20 minutes away, I need either make ahead or quick meals!

I recently ordered the “Fixate” cookbook because I’m currently doing the 21 Day Fix program & am seeing & feeling some pretty awesome results! So, I flipped through the cookbook & decided to try out “Quinoa & Black Bean Salad”.

On the weekend I’ll often make a quinoa salad & then serve it over chopped lettuce or spinach during the week. Then I’ll add some chopped chicken & lunch is all set to go! Makes 3-4 lunches for the week!
