5 DAYS WITHOUT SUGAR, DAY 3

5 DAYS WITHOUT SUGAR – HOW TO COOK QUINOA DAY

You will learn how to cook quinoa at the end of the article. Until then, here are my thoughts about day 3:

Who would have thought that it can be so easy to avoid sugar and that there are so many food options out there? I am really having a lot of fun experimenting with so many delicious, processed sugar-free meals and snacks, and I totally recommend you to also try this out, at least for 2-3 days!ย ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

If you want more food inspo, make sure to check out what I ate during DAY 1 and DAY 2 of the 5 DAYS WITHOUT SUGAR CHALLENGE!

Here’s my DAY 3 menu:

LUNCH:

  • Mixed vegetables soup
  • Spinach
  • Polenta
  • Beans

DINNER:

  • Quinoa salad with tuna, cherry tomatoes, corn and onion
  • Mashed potatoes with green olives

SNACK:

  • Mixed nuts
  • 1 banana

I almost never eat white rice, not even brown rice, because I have replaced it with my delicious quinoa!

HOW TO COOK QUINOA

  • rinse it well before cooking, because quinoa has a natural coating of saponins which may taste bitter if not rinsed off
  • add the desired amount you want to cook to a pan (โ—quinoa will expand in size when cooked, so make sure you don’t add too muchโ—)
  • add double the amount of water
  • salt and pepper
  • bring it to a boil (takes around 10-15 minutes, you’ll notice that it has expanded)
  • let simmer until all the water is absorbed
  • fluff with a fork and enjoy!

It is super easy to make, healthy and tasty – I really love it! And you can have it however you like, either in salads or as a side dish.

If you try this recipe or the chocolate oatmeal recipe that I have shown you in DAY 2, make sure to tag me or send me your pics! I’d really love to know what you think, if you liked it or not. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Also, make sure to stay tuned on my Instagram stories, where I will be posting live meal updates! See you there!
