Summer School and Eating Healthy...

I am taking some fun classes this summer. I promised myself that I am going to do my best to eat healthy. Because sometimes during elevated stress can easily lead to eating fast food. 

In order to avoid the fast food chains from school I decided to pack a healthy lunch. I have used quinoa before with my daughter when introducing grains for her she was not too crazy about it but remember enjoying it. 

I found this great recipe here. It does needs some prep time but there are steps you can do ahead which makes it a fast way to assemble the salad.

I hope you will like it as much as I liked it was a new spin to the grains and smells great. I already got a comment at school when I was having it for lunch for the great aroma it has. 

This is a very refreshing salad to try during summer.I can see my self making another batch soon before my mint goes bad.
This is so good and incredibly refreshing for a summer dinner party!
