meatless monday || cranberry quinoa

One of my favorite things to do is go to whole foods salad bar and load up for lunch.
We don’t have one close by so it’s a nice treat when i’m in the area.
I always load up on {if its there!} is their Cranberry Quinoa
 ummm. yum.
it’s a nice healthy side for dinner, lunch, or if you’re like me – to snack on throughout the day.
 it helps keep me full, gives me energy, and away from the low blood sugar b@#*@ mood that sometimes strikes. 
here’s the recipe, if you’d like to try.  
PS: if you need a little more me in your life: head over to A Girl in Transit for an interview!

    All I can say is YUM! The hubs and I are big meat fans, but I will say that the days we have chosen to eat vegetarian have been incredibly satisfying!
