I love to incorporate the herbs from my garden into as many recipes as I can.  Mint is so nice and refreshing and is so simple to grow.  It will take over if you plant it right in your garden, so try to keep it in a contained area or in a pot.  This herb contains an abundance of vitamins and minerals and alleviates numerous health ailments.

Here I  included mint in a dressing to add to my morning quinoa bowl.  You can use whatever fruit you have on hand to make this dish – mangoes, strawberries, blueberries, etc.  I've used mangoes and apples in the recipe below, combining nicely with the lemon mint dressing to create a delicious healthy breakfast that I have post-workout.

¼ cup freshly squeezed organic lemon juice
¼ c fresh mint
zest of 1/2 organic lemon
1 tbsp raw organic honey
1 cup organic quinoa
2 cups water
1 ripe organic mango chopped
1 organic apple chopped
¼ cup  raw organic sunflower seeds
¼ cup raw organic walnuts chopped
1/3 cup organic raisins

Cook quinoa by rinsing it under warm water for 3 minutes, agitating gently.  Place quinoa and water in a pot and bring to a boil stirring occasionally.  Cover and simmer 7-10 minutes.  Let cool.
Wisk together lemon juice, mint, honey and lemon zest.  Pour over chopped apple and mix.  When quinoa has cooled, mix in apple mixture, mango, sunflower seeds, walnuts and raisins.

Store any leftovers in the fridge to have on hand for a quick snack or post-run/workout meal.
