Work it, Baby.

Lately, I'm loving the convenience of YouTube fitness videos.

Scarlett loves doing whatever Nevin is doing.

Nevin's new favourite thing is doing YouTube fitness videos with me. It ranks somewhere above biking, but below making police car noises at the top of his lungs.

Since we're all on such a health kick over here, it seems like the perfect opportunity to share our new favorite salad. Scarlett will eat anything. Nevin will eat almost all of the components, as long as they have never actually been in the salad, have no dressing and aren't touching. Shawn and I find it entirely addictive.

Quinoa and Kale Salad
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 bunch kale, stems removed and chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup (or less) feta cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1. Cook the quinoa according to the package directions.
2. In a large pot, put about 2 cm of hot water and the chopped Kale over medium-high heat. Steam the kale until it has turned a brighter green colour, about 3 minutes. Drain any water that is left.
3. Put the quinoa in with the kale. Add the onions, dried cranberries, walnuts, and feta cheese to the kale and mix well.
4. Combine the olive oil and vinegar. Pour over the quinoa mixture. Done!
