Ryan and I have definitely eaten our share of "protein bars"  "snack bars"  "meal replacement bars"  "granola bars"  or whatever else you wanna call um!   really the only ones i actually recommend to people these days are LARA bars, because they have only 4-6 ingredients.  most "protein bars" have at least 20 ingredients and contain things like hydrolyzed collagen and soy lecithin, mainly added for their functionality, not their nutrition.  plus, many bars contain artificial sweeteners and/or...

Inspired by my own recipe

Posted by Bree Marsh on Wednesday, February 1, 2012,
After a very long hiatus (too long) Ryan and I had this salad last Tuesday night for dinner.

the recipe is under the Dense Dishes link.

we enjoyed it so much, that i wanted to do it again this week, but i wanted to change it up a bit.  the flavors are so good together, so i wanted to keep most of it the same.  instead of lettuce, i used quinoa.  and i added a few more ingredients to the dressing.

2 cups cooked quinoa*
2 cu...
