A Step Back & Quinoa Salad

I love being outdoors. I think even if the week is extremely busy that it's important to take a step back. My family loves to travel, and we scheduled a trip for the beginning of June. Sitting in front of a computer all semester as really made me want to do one thing during my future vacation. I'm going to be closing my laptop, turning my phone on silent and/or airplane mode depending on if I need it (which I won't.) I might pop in on Instagram and you can follow me by clicking here. Basically I'm doing an internet detox and I cannot wait to just clear my head for the next two weeks. I will be back with millions of photos, new recipes, reviews, road-trip tips and whatever else you guys may want to see! (Let me know if there is anything specific in the comments!) I cannot wait to enjoy the beach, food and peace.

Before I go, I do want to share this delicious Avocado-Tomato Quinoa Salad I made the other night for dinner!
What You'll Need:

  • Avocado
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Feta Cheese
  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Quinoa
What You'll Need to Do:
  • Start by making the quinoa (2 cups water per 1 cup quinoa), boil water and add quinoa, bring to a boil then lower heat and cover and let simmer for about 5-7 minutes. Until quinoa has white spiral-like threads on it
  • Saute vegetables except tomato in separate pan (I used 1/4 cup diced onions, 1 cup diced peppers and 1/4 cup chopped mushrooms)
  • Put spinach in bowl
  • Drain Quinoa and about half to your bowl
  • Add veggies 
  • Top with tomatoes, avocado, feta cheese (or no cheese) 

I really loved this recipe and it was really filling and quick to make! Perfect for when I ate dinner by myself.
