    For Quinoa folks, I saw this and thought of you guys.

    Tropical tasting kiwi and mango lend a fresh burst of flavor to Kiwi Mango Quinoa Salad.

    Ingredients (serves 4)
    1 cup dry quinoa, rinsed & drained
    2 cups water
    2 kiwi, chopped
    1 mango, chopped (click here for a tutorial
    1 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
    1/4 cup red onion, minced
    2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
    For the Lime Ginger Vinaigrette:
    3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 Tablespoon sesame oil
    1 Tablespoon lime zest
    2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
    2 teaspoons fresh ginger, microplaned or finely minced
    1 teaspoon rice vinegar
    1 teaspoon brown sugar
    salt
    pepper
    Instructions
    Bring water to a boil in a medium-sized saucepan. Add quinoa, place a lid on top and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until quinoa is tender. Pour into a large bowl and allow to cool. Once cool, add in kiwi, mango, tomatoes, red onion and cilantro.
    Combine all ingredients for the vinaigrette together and pour over the quinoa, fruits and vegetables. Mix to combine. Season with more salt & pepper to taste.

    This was lunch yesterday.

    Tuna mixed with sour cream and spices wrapped in lettuce leaves and topped with bell pepper slices.

    It was pretty filling for the afternoon!

    okay because I was looking for what you used to fill up the remaining space with that little portion.
    Looking at some of the recipes you might like them, but you also might alter them to your liking since she used a lot of fruit (superfruits but still I know you and your sugar). Lemme get ghost, before the traffic that I think doesn't exist hits me in the face.

    ohhh. cause I was about to cuss you....lol

    I looked at the smoothies recipes and yeah they heavy on the fruit but still doable with a bit of tweeking. I tend to use the same combos all the time so its good to switch things up.

    Thank yuh ma'am.

    I forgot to bring any lunch with me today - working at a client's office today - so I am stressed out about what to eat today I'm in the middle of Chinatown so healthy options are kinda limited and my tummy isnt up to anything made of dog or deep-fried today.

    see you wrong for that...you could always get some safe vegetarian dish i.e. vegetarian Singapore noodles. At least that way you know there's nothing really suspect. I know I'm mad late, but I was scooping out the other threads.

    I did think of that but I just couldn't be bothered with the tring to communicate what I want and don't want in the food places in the immediate area. Lol I just drove into downtown and got some japanese food I didn't have worry boutq the mystery meat business
