Happy Sunday chickadee’s!
I just got back from NYC and I am b.l.o.a.t.e.d.
I need all.the.potassium – pronto.
Definitely time to get back on my 10 daily de-bloat tips. ( you can get them anytime by signing up for the CIC newsletter! )
It’s been a weekend full of eating, drinking, and more eating.
But hey.. balance, right?
So anyway, I figured I’d share another quick recipe that’s super healthy since I’ll be eating it this week for sure.
I made this one day by randomly throwing shit together, basically.
& surprise surprise, I loved it!
It’s only 5 ingredients, super easy to make, and obviously it tastes good.
The best part? The coconut aminos dressing on it. I’ll explain.
+ 1/2 cup of quinoa
+ 1 tbsp of coconut oil
+ 2 tsp of coconut aminos
+ lettuce wraps
+ cook the quinoa
( I made 1 cup to have extra for the week – kill two birds with one stone or whatever, right? )
+ once the quinoa is done, put it in a bowl & add the coconut aminos
+ add the coconut oil & mix them all together
+ put the tomatoes in last
The coconut aminos ? SO EFFING GOOD. If you haven’t tried it – you absolutely need to. Like, now.
It’s a soy-free seasoning sauce, so I usually use it when I get sushi instead of the soy sauce.
BUT, it’s so good mixed with the coconut oil. The flavor is just so much YES.
It really makes the entire meal – so go get it.
I’m trying it on the most random things lately.
Like.. you just never know, you know?
And only 5 calories in one teaspoon!
You can also eat these as wraps or make it a salad.
I’ve personally done both and I love the wraps but the salad is easier when i’m on-the-go and need to pack it up.
It is also packed with protein from the quinoa so it fills you up for awhile.
I add pepper and sometimes a dash of pink Himalayan salt to spice it up.
But seriously, the coconut aminos mixed with the coconut oil is usually perfect without anything else.
Alright my loves, time to go prepare to de-bloat myself for the week. ( ugh, right. )
Have fun with these wraps/salads, spice them up if you’re feeling & DUH let me know how it is!
