Quinoa Casserole Recipe

Quinoa Casserole Recipe

As a working mom with two kids on the go, meal prep is essential in my house.  I have found the Sundays I don’t meal prep, I end up eating whatever I can find between meetings or living off bars to keep me full through a meeting.

Meal prep isn’t easy by any means and it ends up taking a few hours out of your Sunday, but once you get in a good routine, it isn’t that bad.  The plus side, you feel really good at the end of the week after you have ate so well!  Guess that means you can splurge a little more on the weekends :).

I recently made a quinoa casserole recipe only because I had a bunch of ingredients I needed to use up in my house and turned out to be a hit!  It doesn’t take too long to prep and it’s super tasty for a healthy meal.  The recipe looks like a of items to prep, but you can just use whatever you have in your house in terms of veggies. This can be eaten as a lunch or dinner throughout the week.
