Good Morning and Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. When I walked outside this morning I really thought it was September. It is suppose to get up to 74 degrees here today….CRAZY! I went for my run in shorts and a tank top today. But I am not complaining, I am loving this weather!
Run 5 miles/45mins
Yesterday was a pretty easy, relaxing day. I tried out a new recipe that is BANGIN’. This was my first time ever making peanut sauce and I was surprised by how easy and delicious it is. I will definitely be making this more often 🙂
Quinoa Salad with Peanut Sauce (6 servings)
1 cup of uncooked quinoa
2/3 cup peanut sauce (recipe below)
1 package (16 oz.) coleslaw mix
2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp cilantro
Prepare quinoa according to package directions; remove to a large bowl. Meanwhile, add your 2 canola oil to the peanut sauce and whisk together until blended.
Add the coleslaw mix and cilantro to the quinoa. Drizzle with your peanut sauce mixture; toss to combine. Sprinkle with peanuts (optional) and serve immediately.
To make the Peanut sauce:
1/2 peanut butter
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
2 drops hot sauce
1/2 cup sugar
Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. I zapped mine in the microwave for a few seconds to soften up my peanut butter.
Have a great Monday! Make Healthy Choices 🙂
