Ingredients:

2-3 Sprays on Non-Stick Organic Olive Oil Spray

2-3 Organic Scallions Chopped

3-4 Organic Bella Mushrooms Chopped

2-4 Stems of Organic Kale peeled off stem and chopped, or 1 cup of Organic Kale Chopped

1/2-1 cup of Organic Tricolored Quinoa

1/2 teaspoon Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil

1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan Salt

Method:

Pull out a nice size skillet and place on your stove.  Take out your Kale, Scallions and Mushrooms.  Wash them with filtered water and dry.  Cut your scallions and mushrooms up on a cutting board. Peel your Kale Leaves off of stem and chop. While you’re preparing your veggies, pull out a small sauce pot and fill with 2 cups of filtered water and boil.  Once water is boiled, add in a cup of your quinoa to boiling water and reduce heat from high to medium high.  It should take you about 15 minutes to make.  Once Quinoa is puffy looking, strain left over water in strainer.  Heat your skillet to medium/high.  Spray your Olive Oil Spray in pan.  Once pan is heated, add your scallions, mushrooms and kale to pan.  Once the veggies are browned, add in your quinoa and 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil.  Mix all ingredients together on medium heat for 3 minutes.  Add a dash of your Himalayan Salt.

Side Note:

Organic Quinoa can be found in most grocery stores today.  You can also purchase the Red Quinoa as well.  Quinoa is the only grain that provides all your needed amino acids to make a complete protein.  It’s also very lower in the Glycemic Index and won’t cause a spike in your Insulin Levels. It’s also very affordable if you’re trying to make large meals that are organic.  When you purchase the Coconut Oil, try and buy the Unrefined Organic brand.  Coconut Oil should always be measured as it’s still considered a fat.  Coconut Oil works wonders in your diet if you’re battling yeast as it has Lauric and Caprylic Acid substances in it.  This will work well for other forms of bacteria too.  This whole dish should take you 15-20 minutes.  If you use 1 cup of Quinoa, it will serve 1-2 people.  One cup of Quinoa cooked is about 222 calories.  If you’re cooking for 4 people, you may double or triple up on all ingredients.
