Today’s quick and easy protein packed lunch is one of my favorite combinations:
2 boiled eggs, half cup quinoa, half cup kidney beans, 2 cups organic baby spinach salad, a handful cherry tomatoes and black pepper and balsamic vinaigrette for dressing
Eggs-always a good source of protein.
Quinoa is a grain. When cooked, it has a light fluffy texture almost similar to rice. It is known for being a superfood for its high amount of protein and has 9 essential amino acids, which is great for supporting the growth of muscle.
Kidney Beans-a good source of protein as well as fiber.
Spinach-has calcium and iron and is overall rich in antioxidants.
Cherry tomatoes-contain some vitamin A and C
Balsamic Vinaigrette-Light and lower calorie dressing also better alternative to mayonnaise.
