This is my favorite meatloaf recipe ever! The Quinoa adds extra protien and vitamins. To me the Raisins are an absolute must!

You can lighten this recipe up by using non-fat parm but I love it this way and it still is a reasonable calorie count. The quinoa makes this pilaf extra nutritional. One of my family's favorite sides. Could also be a good main meal by adding cubed chicken breast or just leave vegetarian (use vegetable stock instead of chicken). Sometimes I add a different variety of veggies like green beans.

A breakfast dish made with quinoa.
*Please note this brand of organic Quinoa is high in fiber other types are less so. The servings are filling. I separate into four different containers and refrigerate. Warms nicely with a little added milk in the microwave.

This is a quick, easy to store salad. It's a change of pace from typical lettuce salad. A great summer time lunch or dinner! I make it in bulk for parties or to bring for my lunch.

This recipe is very basic and open to adaptation. If you don't like the veggies or seasonings, it's easy to change it up to suit your taste.
