Mon Feb 9th - What I'm Eating

Breakfast: parts of a banana, an orange, a string cheese, and some yogurt with raisins, honey, and almonds...all shared with my little guy

Lunch: Ezekiel corn tortilla quesadillas with black beans (which had been soaked...)

Snack: about half an apple with some cheddar cheese

Dinner: Salmon baked with olive oil and seasoning, Quinoa (soaked) with Spinach and Feta, and a big baby greens salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

Snack: dried cranberries and pistachios

Analysis: not a bad day - dinner was delicious, the quinoa dish was awesome! I soaked the quinoa and the black beans for over 24 hours, then transferred them to the fridge until time to use them. I didn't notice any differences in taste or texture, so that was a good thing, I think! I would definitely be less to do it if I not only had to plan a day or two in advance, but then my food didn't taste right afterwards... So there you go, my first foray into soaking beans and grains, aside from buying Ezekiel stuff...

  1. Did you soak them in anything in particular, or just water?
