Well, today was my first day of food, so I decided to be creative and try some new food. I had granola and banana for breakfast, a delightful tomato pesto panini on multigrain bread for lunch and for dinner, Max and I shared a quinoa salad. It was simple to make (Max and I played GameCube while the quinoa was simmering) and very delicious. For us two (a little left over for lunch), I used 3/4 cups rinsed quinoa, 1.5 cups water, 1/3 of a tomato (more is better, chopped coarsely), 1/2 of an avocado (chopped into bits as well) and some chopped cilantro. Simply bring the quinoa and the water to a boil, and then slowly simmer until all the water is gone, then cool and add the vegetables and cilantro and mix with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil to keep from getting to clumped. We also had some carrots and a dollup of hummus on the side, with a few almonds and a sprig of cilantro for a garnish. It was very tasty and simple to make, here’s a shot of the salad, and us having fun plating it up.
