It’s that time of year again where the majority of people are trying to reset their eating habits after weeks of big holiday meals, cookies, and other seasonal confections. Sometimes it’s easy to do because our bodies instinctively crave the things we need – protein, veggies, etc. However, sometimes it can be a bit of a challenge when the healthy options that come to mind are unappealing. Boring salads, baked chicken breast? No thanks. We can do better than that.
This is the time to arm yourself with nourishing foods that are also crave-worthy. Having foods like this around make it much easier to make smart decisions. Quinoa and roasted veggies tossed with a flavorful peanut sauce – this fits the bill. It makes a fairly large batch so it is perfect to have on hand for lunches or quick dinners throughout the week. It is good warm, at room temperature or chilled. Here’s to fresh starts and healthy choices. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
