Would it surprise you to know that my eating has been less than healthy these last four weeks? Sadly, when I am in newborn survival mode, I will go hours without eating, by which point I am so ravenous that I make really poor choices. Just ask that depleted package of Oreos in my pantry!
In a moment of lucidity (courtesy of a little bit longer stretch of sleep - thank you, Mouse - and only one child at home today), I threw together a few favorite ingredients from Trader Joe's to see how it would turn out.
Since the answer was "yummy" and "satisfying", I thought I'd share here. Because, really, who doesn't need a quick, filling meal made from (mostly) good-for-you ingredients?
Creamy Greek Quinoa
Makes 4 servings
- 1c uncooked quinoa
- 2c water (or broth)
- 1/2 c Greek-style feta dressing
- 1/4-1/2c sun-dried tomatoes (drained and chopped)
- 8oz tofu (or cooked chicken), cubed
- handful of olives
Cook quinoa with water or broth per package instructions. Toss with dressing, divide between four bowls (or one bowl and three refrigerator-ready storage containers) and top with remaining ingredients. Enjoy warm or cold!Yep, that's really it!
P.S. I actually exercised today! Stay tuned for an exciting return to Fitness Friday later this week!
