As parents, it can be quite challenging to do a cleanse or stick to a clean-eating lifestyle when you have to cook something different for your kids – especially if it’s not a flex food. However, this can be an opportunity for you to introduce good eating habits to your kids and new dishes that can become staples in your kitchen. It’s also a great chance to take a mental note of how much time you and your family dedicate to food and cooking. There are lots of dishes that are nutritious, satisfying AND simple. Below is a recipe that is super easy and if you make a batch, it keeps well in the fridge all week long.
1 cup dry quinoa (cook according to normal instructions)
1/2 cup dry lentils/1 cup cooked lentils
cilantro (as much as desired)
organic honey (just a little drizzle)
Sea Salt (just a sprinkle)
Serve: After the quinoa is cooked, mix in your desired amount of cilantro. Place two heaping tablespoons of Quinoa on a plate and one tablespoon of lentils on top. Drizzle a bit of honey and then sprinkle with sea salt and serve.
