Quick Lunch

This is a make-ahead recipe that will make a nice lunch, quicker than a sandwich to heat up. It's dairy and gluten free, low in calories with a healthy dose of protein and fiber.  It's not especially gourmet or creative, but "wholesome." I started eating it when I was on a 6 week diet that had to be free of soy, gluten, sugar, dairy, additives and gmos. And I kept eating it after going off the diet because I like it. 

I used an organic green pepper and onion. It's especially good to use an organic pepper since it's one of the "dirty dozen" - produce most contaminated by pesticides. The onion, on the other hand is one of the least affected, so buying organic onions is not as important.
I chopped the onion and pepper, using half of the large onion and all of the pepper.

Then I sauteed the onion and pepper with 1 Tablespoon of virgin coconut oil. I like to cook mine on low heat, slowly. 

Then I added 1 pound of grass-fed ground beef...

And sauteed the burger with the onions and green peppers.
I cooked quinoa according to the package directions. But you could use rice or small noodles if you prefer.

I like mine with a pat of butter and a little salt, accompanied by a salad of field greens, pecans, white basalmic vinegar and olive oil (not shown).

 I make up enough for several meals and put it in mason jars in my frig. 

Then when I need it, I pull it out and heat it on the stove or in the microwave. This is a meal that an older child could easily prepare for the family.

So what do you think? Sound like something your family would like?
