Summer Farmers Market Quinoa Bowl from HeatherChristo.com

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend! I had waaaay too much fun and I am still recovering.

Two nights out is too much for an old lady like me to handle. I had to spend all day on Sunday lying on the basement couch watching an Outlander marathon, followed by a Seahawks pre-season game, followed by Game of Thrones. I have basically grown into the couch.

SO after my overly rowdy weekend, the best way for me to get on track is to start things off with a really good healthy meal! I made this so that I could take it to work for lunch for a couple of days- but I would also eat this as part of a healthy dinner. I just basically piled every wonderful summery thing that was fresh into it! Sweet corn and juicy cherry tomatoes that pop in your mouth, amazing peaches and crunchy peppery radishes- it’s all wonderful together and very filling- exactly what I want to be eating right now!
