Yummy Quinoa Salad


The cupcakes turned out great... I prefer them without the frosting, but Bill loved it. I've posted the recipe & data to the cupcake page. I've also updated the nutrition data for the Quinoa Salad. This last time I made it, I mixed 1/4 cup black quinoa, 1/4 cup red quinoa and 1/2 cup regular white quinoa to make the 1 cup the recipe called for. It created a very colorful dish :-) While my photo isn't the greatest, here's the 2 recipes side by side (you can see the more colorful one better in yesterday's post below):

Today will be Back & Biceps, plus cardio (probably the treadmill). Then I'll get cleaned up and go visit the boys at bowling. I'll take the cupcakes with me as they're a bit high-cal for a cheat while I'm on Operation Marshmallow Fluff. They put my food ratios & calories right over the edge yesterday (see yesterday's cooler & fitday numbers), and I only had one! Yikes!

Breakfast today was oatmeal with protein powder and all the add-ins (cinnamon, flax, blackberries). I'm out of vanilla protein pwdr, so I used chocolate. No bueno. Left a weird taste in my mouth. I've gotta suck it up and just order a new vanilla.
