The Beef Fried Quinoa

Happy New Year Guys! I still haven’t gotten used to writing the figures 2018. I hope this year brings in many good things and recipes!

First post of the year and I am excited to tell you guys that I have been drafted into the “Fitfam life”. I never hexperredit. I don’t know when I accepted to be a part of it but I remember despite my love for bread agreeing to a “no carbs” diet. Things you do for love eh?

So I decided to, you know make it again to continue the “no carb” diet on my own and this brings us to the recipe of today. “Beef fried Quinoa” just like saying “chicken fried rice” you get it? I said what I said. This dish was so good, my friend Dayo took a spoonful to “taste” and ended up taking the whole thing home (Lmao now I don’t have dinner).
