Whenever we decide to change our eating habits, we begin to search for new recipes to expand our culinary horizons.
Today I put together this Baby Lima Bean Vinaigrette salad, which is very healthful, vegetarian, and fits perfectly in the Fat Smash Diet category I am currently following. It is full of protein from the Lima Beans, plus the goodness of the other vegetables and seeds incorporated into it.
If you have been following my blog, you already know that I am very impressed with The Fat Smash Diet, and love following all the phases at least once every year (usually mid-January), with very rewarding results.
Of course, before making this decision, you should check with your Primary Care Physician if your medications and pre-existing conditions will allow you to make these lifestyle changes.
Some people think it is too harsh (no coffee or alcohol for 9 days…wow…), but it is perfect for my taste and my lifestyle.
As I mentioned to you in my previous post about the Fat Smash Diet, there are 4 different Phases you go through during this program, and each phase has a list of suggested and excluded foods.
Some of the excluded foods in one phase are being introduced back into your diet in the next phase, so for ideal success, you need to follow these food suggestions, eat 3-4 smaller meals per day, follow the same eating schedule, and continue to exercise.
Just think, this phase is only 9 days long….you can do it!!
This Quinoa Salad with Magic Green Sauce became my favorite from the first time my daughter-in-law served it for lunch during one of our visits.
It could easily be a light lunch meal in itself, or as an accompaniment to a main course.
Today I will share a recipe for the salad, since you already have the recipe for the sauce/dressing from my previous post.
