During one of my last giveaways I asked you all what kind of recipes you would like to see more of on The Girl Who Ate Everything and the answer was an overwhelming amount of “Healthy” recipes. Then I bounced on over to my analytics to see what term is most searched on my blog and…you guessed it, “Healthy Recipes”.

Hellloooo? Hi guys. It’s me Christy. Have we met?

I like the calorie laden, diet starts tomorrow type of recipes. You come to my site on your cheat day for recipes. Remember? Are you at the right blog?

Okay, okay. Fine. Drum roll please. Here’s a healthy recipe. But I’m not promising that tomorrow I won’t be back with another diet buster.Edamame Quinoa Salad | The Girl Who Ate EverythingMy friend Simone makes this for every birthday party or baby shower that we have here in Florida. She’s a completely ripped, Cross Fit woman so I’m not surprised that she made a salad full of superfoods. This salad has quinoa, edamame, red bell pepper, corn, garbanzo beans, celery, dried cranberries, lime, sliced almonds and a little olive oil.

After I poured all of the vegetables into a bowl, I realized I needed a bigger bowl. And this makes a ton. Like enough for a week. My kids ate this. But I make them eat everything. They are The Kids That Ate Everything.

  • 1 15-oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup cilantro , finely minced

Instructions

  2. Add remaining ingredients and toss to combine. Add salt to taste. I'm guilty of not putting enough salt on things and it makes all of the difference. Chill unto ready to serve.
