Cilantro Lime Quinoa

Does this week seem to be flying by to anyone else? I can't believe it's already Thursday. Not that I'm complaining, we're only really 2 days away from the weekend!

The weather here has been very cold and snowy so far but supposedly is going to warm up today through the weekend. I'm hoping to do some outdoor running tomorrow and on Saturday. So far this week I have done a 4 mile run on Tuesday and then a sprint workout yesterday. The workout yesterday was made up of 7-400 meter runs at 9min/mile pace with a 0.2 mile walking interval in between.

Running this week has been great so far. I'm hoping to continue the trend with a 3 mile run tomorrow and then an 8 mile run this weekend.

When it comes to cooking, I'm all about taking something you know and modifying it slightly to make it new.

We enjoyed this quinoa along side Salsa Verde Chicken (recipe to follow tomorrow)

  1. If you have a chance, try grilling a bunch of green onions (put olive oil, kosher salt and pepper and blacken on a hot grill) then chop, and add a finely diced jalapeno (if you like a little heat) to this recipe and I think you will be amazed!!
