Kale & Quinoa Salad

Happy WIAW! Thanks for all your well wishes with Jax. She’s doing better, but I’m still not happy with her cough. She’s been playing non-stop with Opie though, so at least she still has her spunk!

Those eyes get me every time!

This little girl has been quite the handful for us, but now that her and Opie are playing well together I’m feeling better about the entire situation. Now if we can only get the potty training down!

My favorite part of fall? CANDY CORN!

I thought these were just OK. The white chocolate was too overpowering to really get the candy corn flavor. Unless you eat them one at a time, then you can get more of the candy corn. But who eats M&M’s one at a time?

And my current obsession at this moment has been this quinoa salad I made. It’s so stinkin’ delicious. I’ve packed it for lunch everyday so far this week!

Kale & Quinoa Salad
A delicious salad that can be enjoyed hot or cold! Super simple to make, and loaded with protein and veggies!

Ingredients:

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 bunch of kale, stems removed and chopped
  • 1 bunch broccoli florets, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 C reduced sodium veggie broth
  • 1 C quinoa
  • 1/4 C feta cheese
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • pepper to taste

Heat oil in large pan. Sauté all veggies for about 3 minutes. Add broth and quinoa. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper. Toss with feta cheese and serve.

Oh gosh this stuff is so good. And so easy too. I threw all this into a pan and played with the puppies for a bit, checked on it, and it was done! No fuss no muss. Now if only I could find a way to get Ninja to try it…

What’s your favorite kind of M&Ms? Mine would have to be the peanut butter, dark chocolate or mint!
