Quinoa and Black Beans

Love fresh cilantro

Love fresh cilantro

I love food and I love to cook.  I have many cookbooks and when I see a good recipe I can’t wait to go home and try it!  I have my ups and downs with eating.  Some times I eat well other times not great.  If you want to eat well you have to plan a bit.  At least for me it’s best if I sit down and write what I want to cook for the week.  I’ll get groceries on the weekend and plan my week accordingly.  If I do that it works every time ` NOT!  Pardon me while I brush the Doritos© crumbs from my shirt:)

Throw in kids, work and all the other things (life) and you’re heading down to Chick-Fil-A© faster than you can blink and you feel great because it’s always their pleasure to serve you at Chick-Fil-A.  Hey they serve lettuce. Reality check!

2014 is going to be the year of eating well!  I can feel it!  I really can ~ or maybe that’s heartburn from my Doritos:(

I’ve always wanted to try Quinoa.  I picked some up and found this recipe.  If you are looking for a nice vegetarian dish ~ I must say this was fantastic!  I threw in my own spin and added a dash of lime juice and curry powder instead  (I was out of cumin).  I absolutely loved the chopped cilantro and the color was fantastic.  Recipe is below:

Enjoy ~ Happy Miles to You!
