This might not look pretty but it is so good. I get asked all.the.time. how I get my protein since I don’t eat meat. It was even worse before I started eating eggs again. Take a look at this picture, that’s my protein right there! Even if I left the eggs out it is still protein and nutrient packed. You have quinoa, greens, and healthy fat. Boom. This cooks up pretty quickly too, the longest step is waiting for the quinoa to be done. Fast and easy dinners are the best!
