Start by bringing 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water to a boil without lid. Once vigorously boiling reduce heat to medium-low and put lid on for 15 minutes. Fluff with fork. While quinoa is cooking, cut up your steamed zucchini (to steam, I use a steamer basket), tomatoes, and basil. Rinse garbanzo beans. Mix them all together along with the other ingredients and enjoy!!
This recipe makes about 6 cups of salad. Weight watchers Points Plus 2012: 6 points for each salad!
One cup has 10 grams of protein! Pair with a fruit salad or yogurt and a piece of dark chocolate for an awesome lunch!
Bring the water to boil in a large pot. Turn burner off and steep the tea bags (with the paper tags torn off) in the pot for 10 minutes. Add juice from 2 of the lemons to the pot along with the agave nectar. Slice the other 2 lemons and add the slices to the pot. Transfer everything to a large glass container or pitcher and add 2 ice cube trays (24 ice cubes) to the container. Chill and enjoy! (I keep the tea bags in there for a few hours and take them out either that evening or the next morning, depending when I prepare the tea)
**This tea provides antioxidants from the blueberries and Acai. The lemons are an excellent digestive agent. Enjoy!!
