Easy delicious lunch

Hi guys

Lunch is really important to me, maybe the most important meal of the day. However occasionally when I have big plans for dinner or I am going to eat out with my friends or family, I consciously choose to eat a simple lunch. Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite dishes for those occasions. It is healthy and full of nutrients and it only takes 15-20 minutes to cook, even less when there is quinoa leftover in the fridge.

Pour water in a small pot. Then add quinoa and salt, bring it to the boil and let it be on low heat for 10 minutes. You can add dil at this point but it is completely optional.

Now cut mushrooms and put them in a pan add olive oil and pepper and lemon juice to it. Avoid overcooking, 5-6 minutes is enough for mushrooms. If you chop them really small, it will take even less.

Peel half of an avocado and cut it to thin pieces. Then rinse spinach leaves. I use cold water to rinse vegetables.

The food is ready. Put it on a plate and add the avocado pieces on the side and enjoy.

I strongly believe that this fresh healthy delicious meal is a really great alternative for frozen food that comes in box. It is a healthier choice for everyone weather you are vegan or not. To make sure that your eating  healthy, just ask yourself  this simple question before eating anything; “does my body benefit from it?” if the answer is no, don’t eat that. We only get one body, so worship it and be kind to it.
