Quinoa and Adzuki Bean Salad... and PRE-ORDERS!

After some heavy eating (and drinking) during this past holiday i've been feeling a bit worn down.  This crazy healthy and super delicious Quinoa and Adzuki Bean Salad was a savior!  I've had so much more energy today!  Although adzuki beans (red bean) are mostly used in Asia for desserts and sweets, they're not actually a sweet bean.  Adzuki beans are a great source of not only protein and dietary fiber but also magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc copper, manganese and B vitamins.  Apparently they are also widely known in Japan to help support the kidneys (better have a big bowl after a heavy night out!).  The quinoa is also super high in protein and contains all 9 essential amino acids.  With an extra dose of fiber and calcium from the green beans and vitamin C from ripe tomatoes.... Its seriously better than coffee.  Its amazing how whole grains, vegetables, and unprocessed foods can make you feel.  :)

A NOTE ON PRE-ORDERING:  To ensure timely delivery of your super fresh home cooked meal, please pre-order the morning you would like your lunch/dinner.  Sandwiches are almost always available for ASAP delivery however MEALS and MEXICAN take a bit of love and time.  I also always cook with the freshest possible ingredients.. which means some items will not be available all the time.  I prep everything in the morning and when i'm out, i'm out until the next day.  Thank you for your understanding.  If you know what you would like for dinner on your way back from the boat, send me a message and it will be ready for you when you arrive to your house/dive shop.  If you would like breakfast/lunch for the boat, please let me know by 9PM the night before and I can deliver it before you depart in the morning :)
