What's for lunch today?

Spiced Broccoli and Red Quinoa is 350 calories, 16g of protein, 10g of fiber
morning snack - Cashews and strawberries
afternoon snack - Shakeology with honeydew melon (my new favorite recipe!)

I make this recipe quite often because it's so delicious! It's a great way to flavor broccoli without butter.
Nutritional Yeast is not the type of yeast you bake bread with, it's a living micro-organism grown on sugarcane and beet molasses. It has 7 grams of protein in just two tablespoons! It's high in riboflavin, Vitamin B- 12 and full of amino acids. It has a cheesy taste and I sprinkle it over kale chips and put it in my scrambled tofu.

Quinoa is a great alternative to rice because it's high in protein and a slow releasing carb, which means it delays the release of sugar into your blood stream so it keeps you full longer. It's also one of the ingredients in shakeology that gives the shake protein.
