Healthy Tuesday Night Dinner

I'm a huge fan of Greek Salad, but I find just a Greek Salad for dinner will leave me still hungry. I decided to do a spin on a Greek Salad and add a few other ingredients. I added quinoa, which is a healthy grain like seed. It reminds me of a rice. The health benefits alone are worth it to add to any dish. The fact that it taste yummy is an added bonus. Quinoa is high in protein, calcium, iron, vitamin E, vitamin B and many amino acids. Not only is this meal super easy and quick to make, but the hubby loves it too. Which is hard to find healthy, vegetarian meals that he will actually eat. Here's my recipe:


1 green pepper thinly sliced
10 cherry or grape tomatoes cut into quarters
1/2 red onion thinly sliced
1 avocado cut into small pieces
1/2 cucumber cut into quarters
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. parsley
pinch of salt
1 tsp. oregano
Cook quinoa according to directions,
allow quinoa to cool,
add all ingredients in a large bowl,
add dressing and mix together,
divide onto plates and add crumbled feta on top

Casual Saturday Night
Last night hubby and I went for a casual dinner to his parents Greek restaurant. It was nice to visit with the in-laws and have a yummy dinner. The food is beyond amazing. I'm working on the lighting of my pictures, as I am still new to this whole blogging thing. Here is what I wore:
Top: Polka dot chambray button up from Forever 21

To feed my online shopping addiction even more, TopBox and Glam Bag by Ipsy have
now entered into my life. If you don't know what these amazing little gems
are, you need to check them out. It is a monthly subscription that delivers sample and
full-size beauty products right to your door. How it works is you subscribe to a monthly
subscription (that you can cancel at anytime) and the packages get shipped right to your
door. The best part is you have no idea what's inside. Not only that, but they are both around $14 a month and they ship to Canada. TopBox is a Canadian company. Ipsy is based in the U.S, but they are nice enough to not forgot about us up here in the "Great White North". They ship to Canada for $4.95. The Glam Bag is $10 a month, so with shipping $14.95. I still think it's a killer deal, but maybe that's just me?
Here is a look into both my boxes for the month of January.


This is my Glam Bag by IPSY.
Included in the bag:
An Ergonomic Crease Eyeshadow brush
A full size bottle of Red Nailpolish by Nailtini
A travel size hair spray by Big Sexy Hair
A yummy smelling lotion by Pacifica
And my all time fave a sample size Josie Maran Argan Oil
(I have the big bottle which is perfect timing because I am almost out of mine)
All Clinique items.
Eye Makeup remover
Serum- sample size
Overall, I was happy with both. I'm looking forward to February's! I will be sure to do a blog post when they arrive.
