To kick start the healthy aspect of this blog, I've decided to begin with 5 Days of Grain Salads. Yup, you read correctly, five consecutive days of only salads. No, not those leafy green ones. I'm not much of a raw leafy green kind of person, though I do like to gnaw on a carrot stick once in a while. Instead, these are grain salads. Not plain 'ol grains like pasta and white rice, but supposedly "healthy" grains like quinoa and couscous.
So, today is day 1 of 5 days of grain salads, and the first salad is a quinoa salad with edamame, carrots, split peas, and chickpeas a.k.a a rainbow salad! Just letting you guys know, I love to incorporate beans into my grain salads, especially edamame (which will probably show up in every salad). Enjoy!
