Lunch today couldn’t have been more perfect and also only took about 10 minutes to prepare.

Quinoa cooked in chicken broth then near the end of the cooking process I added a packet of tuna so it could also warm with the quinoa.  On the side were roasted brussels sprouts and fresh squash.  Um…yes…heavenly!

  1. Love this! One of my reasons for changing my lifestyle (i have lost 40lbs) was to be able to lay in bed at night and list the things that I had done that I was proud of myself for doing!! Sure beats laying in bed, hating myself and praying that I dont choke on the heavy supper that I had ate!

    • Awww..that’s awesome, Libby. That is really a powerful comment because how many times have I lay there…unable to sleep because my stomach is too full…or I’m regretting what I ate. Thanks for sharing!

      • Thanks Samantha! It has really become important to me to be proud of myself….like something clicked in my head, that I am the only one that can make that happen! I LOVE your blog!
