Quinoa, lentils, avocado, roasted beats, roasted chickpeas, with tomato-cucumber salsa. This delicious dinner came together in about 25 minutes, and it’s balanced and full of veggies!
  • annefood Agreed- I keep whole grains and beans in the pantry and when I don’t know what to do for dinner I just throw them in a bowl with a veggie or lettuce and some dressing.
  • msantiago I never thought of raising beets! I love beets any which way . Think I’ll try that! 🤔
  • DietID_TeamDietitians Yes! Super easy to roast. Just oil, salt, pepper and straight into the oven.

Composting
2yr
Can I compost olive pits, pistachio nut shells, and corn cobs after they’ve been boiled?
