Ahhhh! I feel so refreshed. Per usual, Sunday we attempted to relax. Turns out, I was exhausted [ sleeping thirteen hours straight confirmed this ]. Today I woke up early, went to Pilates with a friend, & grocery shopped. Lunch was this veggie-filled, quinoa salad before teaching PB.
A couple of you have sent e-mails expressing frustrations regarding healthy living in the college dorms. Here is one [ more to come, I promise ] easy lunch ideas that is universally accessible. The best veggie medley ever: I grabbed pre-made quinoa from my local health food store [ it came mixed with peas & carrots ], & mixed in avocado, cucumber, and tomato pieces.
* Quick Skinny Tip: In a restaurant never ask for dressing on the side [ I guarantee you, you'll end up using way too much ]. Instead, ask for lemon, red wine vinegar, & olive oil. Sprinkle salt & pepper to taste.
* Serves one.
