  • 2 tbsp butter or coconut oil

  1. Coat a saucepan with coconut oil or butter.
  2. Add garlic slices and cook until soft.
  3. Add 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of stock.
  4. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
