Two Weeks Down

Here's the recipe for the Quinoa Salad I made last night.  You can use any amount of veggies.  Add your favorites.  Next time I will double the recipe and add halved cherry tomatoes and chopped cucumber.  Steph, we missed you and prayed for you!

2 cups cooked quinoa
1 can black beans
1/2 diced avocado
1 diced red pepper
1 diced green onion
1 finely diced jalapeno
1 handful chopped cilantro
2 big handfuls chopped spinach
1/2 chopped grapefruit w/o pith (try to collect all the juice)

Add all ingredients to big bowl and gently toss


Approx. 2 tbls. Grapefruit juice 
2 tbls. White wine vinegar
3 tbls. Olive Oil
2 tsp Agave 
Salt and Pepper

Shake, pour over salad, and toss again

Serve at room temperature with grilled or baked chicken on top.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it!  


  1. This sounds wonderful! Congratulations on perseverance and weight loss!

    Found another awesome salad for you to try: Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad. I suppose you could leave out the bacon or maybe add in a tiny bit of the pre-made ones from Costco OR add in more protein from chopped, grilled chicken breast.


  2. Here's a delicious sounding recipe for Turkey Taco Bowls. I believe that you could make cilantro lime quinoa instead of rice. Sounds like it would totally work.


  3. OK, one more recipe that sounds absolutely fabulous with summer just around the corner.


  4. All right ladies, here's another beautiful looking main dish. You could definitely add poached chicken breasts to take this over the top!


  5. Couldn't resist sharing this recipe for an amazing looking salad.


  6. Lolita, I miss your updates. Are you still doing the Daniel Plan? Here's another recipe that I thought would fit in to the plan. I wonder if you could make these on the grill. Sound really delicious to me!
