Cilantro Lime Chicken and Spanish Quinoa

We went to my parents house the other night, and my mom made us dinner. I love when I don't have to cook a homemade meal, and my taste buds were happy! One thing I love about the 21 Day Fix is that you don't have to sacrifice flavor to be healthy. I think we, as a society, have gotten so into quantity over quality that people have forgotten what TRUE delicious food tastes like. I've had several months of retraining my taste buds, and my body is so grateful for it! Anyway, rant over. I had to share these recipes with you!
