Adapted from a recipe seen on 101 Cookbooks, this is a spectacular, powerful boost to your morning whether you serve it warm or chill it down for a midday "pudding". Any berries can be used, I prefer strawberries or blueberries, or a mix!

With just a few ingredients, this is simple to make. Yet its versatile enough to adapt. As made, its low sodium and low fat, and high in protein and vitamins. I bought all of the ingredients at Trader Joe's, but I am sure you can find them at the regular grocery store.

Perhaps it’s the lime dressing, which infuses the dish with flavor without overwhelming it in goo. It could be the quinoa, which has a distinctive nutty taste far superior to white rice and its lamer brethren. Or, maybe it’s the tomatoes, black beans, and scallions, which reminded one friend of "the insides of a really good burrito."
Whatever it is, it’ll make you forget uninspired diet food. :-)

A healthier version of Spanish Rice. Delicious as the stuffing to stuffed green peppers. Adapted from allrecipes.com.
