Yes, please!

ALMOND QUINOA PROTEIN GRANOLA BALLS I do love my No Bake Protein Cookies…yes, I do.  But, for some people (and I can’t believe I’m saying this out loud) chocolate isn’t wanted.  These are full of good-for-you carbs and not too sweet. These are prefect for mid-afternoon cravings and have enough protein to hold you over…

Could it look more healthy?!

QUINOA CORN EDAMAME SALAD It is no secret that I love quinoa and eat it every chance I get!  This salad is a re-make and a new favorite of mine – very light, summery, and fresh.  The original had barley, but quinoa is so…NOW!  I also cut the amount of corn in half, and added…

Filling and hearty,…

Wonder Seed…Quinoa!

        Good carbs!  From a seed that also gives you lots of protein.  If you haven’t tried this, DO.  It’s super easy to cook – just like long-grain rice – and can be used anywhere you use that.  FAB. Vary the veggies and seasoning you put in this salad…add in some diced…
