Three things I love: Fitness, Marriage, and Fiesta Lime Quinoa Salad

Tuesday, October 9, 2012


Happy Hump Day Friends! Can you believe it is already Wednesday? Let's start with my favorite fitness motivation find of the week.

So True!! (source)

I also came across this cute infographic the other day, and just had to share. In case you ever forget how important it is to stay hydrated, you can always refer back to this!

If you couldn't tell my Monday's Post (Pumpkin Spice Crepes), and Tuesday's post (Pumpkin Protein Bites) I'm loving me some pumpkin right now. Yesterday's breakfast featured my favorite orange friend as well. A little high fiber, vitamin A packed, fall inspired goodness to start the day right! :)

Sticking with my one meal = 5 lunches theme that I love so much (remember the Cinnamon Apple Frittata?), I made a new quinoa creation for lunch this week. Fiesta Lime Quinoa Salad to be exact. Check out all of those filling veggies and beans!

This recipe is super easy to throw together, stores beautifully, and is perfect hot or cold. The best part is, it gets better after sitting in its own juices overnight! MMMMMMM!

I'm off to walk the Champer Man. I hope you all have a great hump day!

In health,
