Vegetable Fajitas over Quinoa

​Look back with gratitude; look forward with faith. 

It's New Years resolution time. I have so many goals, hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Often, we interpret healthy eating only with losing weight or looking good in a swim suit. Well, I hope you do rock that swim suit this summer and that your goals for health include feeling your absolute best. However, overall any worthy goal requires a healthy body and mind. You are what you eat, so let's fuel our bodies with real, whole foods that will create health for all areas of our lives.

This yummy and simple dish is easy to make. It's a great make-ahead meal to take to work or school and will help you feel full and amazing.
