You say Tomato

Some nights you just need to take it easy.

Since I woke up Monday morning, I've felt like I've been battling a cold. Work has been busy, Todd is back in Texas, and my immune system is like, "what the heck is this weather?"

So for the past few nights I've decided to focus on getting some rest. I've skipped the gym, curled up in bed, watched a little Parenthood, and gotten some much needed sleep.

Last night I was craving comfort food, but I wanted to eat healthy, so I came up with this semi-homemade little creation. It took me about 15 minutes to make and it was so delicious! Sometimes the simplest dishes are the most satisfying. Enjoy!

1 can of tomato soup (I used Amy's organic tomato, low sodium)
2 cups of baby spinach, torn into pieces
1/4 cup of quinoa
2 tablespoons of reduced fat feta

To taste:

Garlic Powder
Red Pepper Flakes
Italian seasoning

Cook the quinoa as directed, using the soup instead of water. Once tender, add in the spinach, spices, and feta. Stir until wilted. Sprinkle with another dash of feta for looks, and feast! (*best enjoyed on the couch whilst wearing pajamas)
