A few months ago I made the quinoa salad that the Shaytards made once and realized I never posted about it! I thought I wouldn’t like it, but it was actually quite nice. Even my carnivore college friends seemed to love it! Looking at these pictures makes me want some now.
- 2 cups quinoa
- 1 can corn
- 1 can black beans
- 2 tomatoes
- 1/2 green pepper
- 1/2 onion
- 1 bunch cilantro
- 5 garlic cloves
- 1 jalapeño (optional)
- juice of 2 limes
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp salt (optional)
Cook the quinoa. Cut up the veggies, add the beans and corn, and the cooked quinoa.
On the side, mix the lime juice, cumin, olive oil, and salt. Add to the quinoa mix and mix it all together.
That’s it! It’s a pretty easy recipe. You can eat it on it’s own, put it in a wrap, or eat it with tortilla chips. This recipe makes a TON, so I suggest cutting it in half or 1/4 if you’re just making it for yourself.
You don’t have to use the exact amounts, I used less garlic and onions, added more green pepper, and didn’t use jalapeño. It really depends on what your preferences are.
Eat up and enjoy!

Insanely Simple Two-Ingredient Recipes
How to Make Carrot “Pasta”
1. Get a medium/ large carrot, cut the ends off, and peel off the outer layer. Then, peel long strips off until you reach the center (I personally dislike the inside of a carrot. I don’t know why… I don’t use that part lol)
2. Make the thicker strips thinner by slicing them lengthwise. This step is completely optional, but I like it do it! Now you have your finished “noodles”!
3. Put them into a frying pan with some olive oil (or avocado oil), salt, and pepper. Cook them for a couple minutes, pushing them around on the pan until they are soft
4. Add however much sauce you want to the pan. Stir the carrots and sauce together to warm it up. I used tomato sauce with onions :)
5. Enjoy! This is so good, even if the pictures don’t do it justice.
I’ve tried squash pasta before, but it was really difficult to make the strands. I’ve gotta try this!!
something new to try :)
Just did it :) so good :D
There’s a lot of hype on Tumblr about green-spinach smoothies. I decided to try one before I judged one but green is not a color I’m comfortable with in a beverage. Here it goes.
I was skeptical…but I followed the advice I’ve been given in the past couple of days. I put an overripe banana in, it helps with the texture.
After I blended it, I it was even less appealing. It was a gross brown-greenish color. But I wasn’t going to waste that food I had to at least try it.
It’s okay, not bad at all. I went easy on the spinach because I was afraid but I can’t tell at all.
The recipe I used was:
1 over ripe banana
1 small handful of spinach
3 medium sized strawberries
1/8 of a cup of skim milk
