The first full week at work after the holidays was a jammed packed one. Filled with a last minute work trip that included only 4 hours of sleep in 48 hours, 16 miles of walking, a mid-flight turnaround back to Las Vegas, and my first and last 4.5 hours on the Las Vegas strip, I have been recovering ever since. (zicam is my best buddy) On top of that, last weekend one of my great friends came to visit from Brooklyn, so I spent the week getting ready for her and planning all the great Denver places to show her. Needless to say, this girl is busy and tired.
Not to busy to eat though. Come on. Last week, I whipped up a healthy Peruvian Royal Quinoa Salad to make up for undeniably tastey and unhealthey traveling diet. Quinoa, carrots, peas, corn, red peppers, tomatoes and chopped queso fresco on top of a bed of romaine was the ticket to feeling great about my lunch. My coworker peered over my desk to say, oh yummy! And they were right.
