I, like many, feel rushed most days of the week. I find that if I have some
good things on hand in the refrigerator, I won't end up eating a bag of Corn Nuts
(there is no judgement, Corn Nuts are legit) and calling it lunch.
I always try to have prepared quinoa in the refrigerator. It is so tasty,
full of protein and the little ones love it, which is a total bonus!
Put 3/4 cup prepared quinoa in a bowl, cold
(or a Mason jar, if you are on the run)
Top the quinoa with 1/2 cup cottage cheese.
Top the quinoa and cottage cheese with a small handful of
Some delish add-ins that I highly recommend:
- sauteed kale, seasoned with sea salt and cracked pepper
- roasted red peppers (I buy them in jars, I do not roast my own...but you could)
- roasted squash (if I have leftovers, from the night before)...zucchini and butternut are faves!
- roasted root vegetables
