Based on Mediterranean Quinoa Salad by Emilie B.
So in order to eat healthier I've been prepping my dinners 3-4 days in advance. I usually have brown rice, chicken tenders and some steamed veggies but I'm on the look out for different recipes to change things up.
I decided to give this recipe a try with a few tweaks.
1) I took out the olives - hate them. Replaced them with some fresh grapes tomato halves instead.
2) Left out the feta - I love feta but its unnecessary fat / calories and the dish doesn't really need it.
3) The quinoa I used was a combination quinoa and bulgor - its impressively high in protein and I cooked it in a rice cooker
4) I also added a few sliced pepperoncinis for some spice
It divided into about 4 servings 1 1/2 cups a piece, I did the nutrition calculations and its under 300 calories a serving with 11 grams of protein, and 375 grams of sodium (not including added seasonings)
Over all a very good recipes, lots of food with very little cost to your daily intake. This can be eaten all on its own or as a side dish for a hardier meal.
