We went out to eat last night to celebrate Jerry's new book at our favorite restaurant in SD - Sipz Vegetarian Fusion Cafe! Every time I go I walk away extremely full and satisfied. I love that I can have "shrimp" and "beef"! The flavors and sauces they use rock. It's very inspiring. What is your favorite vegan restaurant?
For lunch we've been digging quinoa and cabbage wraps so I thought I'd combine them. Quinoa is one of my most favorite grains, primarily due to the way it makes me feel. My body instantly feels satisfied and gratified. I can feel my body thanking me for giving it the proper fuel. My youngest step-son JJ absolutely loves quinoa. When we first introduced him to quinoa he went crazy for it and will pick it over a unhealthier option any day, it's amazing.

Knowing this makes me want to eat quinoa even more! It's a staple in our home and organic red quinoa was a sure treat offering a rich beautiful color. I made 2 batches on Sunday and have enjoyed it in salads, wraps, dinners etc. It's fabulous!
For this wrap I took a red cabbage leaf, topped it with homegrown mung bean sprouts,with pre-cooked quinoa, added some homemade salsa, ripe grape tomatoes and an avocado. Feel free to add your favorite dressing and mix up the wrap. Best part? It only takes 6 ingredients and 5 minutes of time!
