When I started my blog about a year and a half ago, I was working from home full-time and that definitely saved me about a couple hours each day since I didn’t need to commute. Sadly, I had to move jobs last year and although things are good on the work front, I miss those days when I could experiment more with ‘Quick and healthy’ fixes. I still make my lunch in the mornings but it’s usually a veggie sandwich or simple rice dishes that I make using left over rice from dinner.
This week though I did manage to find some time to experiment. I make quinoa usually a couple different ways as an upma which is a south indian dish made from semolina or in salads my favorite being the citrusy one. This time I had beets lying in my refrigerator and on an impulse, decided to add those to the quinoa upma. Boy was I glad I decided to do that?. It turned out absolutely delicious! The slight sweetness form the beets gave a new life to the plain Upma and I drizzled some lime juice to make it really ‘chatpata’ (tangy). I gobbled the entire plate in less than 5 minutes! So tasty and so good for you too! 🙂
I am bringing this Quick N Easy N Healthy lunch special to Angie’s Fiesta Friday to share with all my friends! Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all!
