Quinoa Salad for metabolism-boosting

Super Meal to Flush Fat: Quinoa, Chicken and Tomato

Quinoa, an ancient grain and a complete protein, decreases appetite and is rich in amino acids and vitamin E.  Tomatoes add flavor to this dish and reduce inflammation. Chicken is a lean protein and will satisfy your hunger and continue to burn fat after you have finished eating. Each of these ingredients works singularly to fight fat but when combined they become a fat-fighting super meal.


Sample Ingredients

1 cup quinoa

2 cups chicken stock or vegetable

2 tomatoes

1/4 cup fresh basil

1/4 cup fresh mint

2 tbsp olive oil

2 celery ribs

3 garlic cloves

2 chicken breasts optional

This is from Dr. Oz without directions.

My suggestion is to cook the quinoa in organic chicken stock and make a salad type dish that can be served hot or cold.

Chop the veg and add to Salad raw.

Slice the chicken and saute on medium heat (to not break down the olive oil) or use organic coconut oil with garlic….cool and add to salad.

He also talks about Daikon, Chia Seeds and Papita (pumpkin seeds)… why not through them all in… yeah superfoods!  Probably stays fresh for 3 days in fridge, 5 without chicken.
