We all love a good recipe, right? I mentioned on a Facebook and Instagram post the other day that my husband and I are really trying to eat healthier. We both have the workout thing down pat. No issues there but what you eat truly affects the way you feel. I can tell when I have been eating horribly. When I eat foods high in fat and sugar I am lethargic, bloated, and more negative than when I eat healthier options. Now, when I say high in fat I’m not referring to an avocado. I will eat avocados nonstop (without overdoing it) because they are high in fats that are good for the body. I am referring to my staple horrible foods that I love to each such as: chips and queso, French fries, chips, and (random) fruit snacks or other “gummies” you could say. Those four items that I just mentioned are literally my biggest weaknesses when it comes to food! I don’t really have a problem with soft drinks because I normally prefer water over any of that. Anyway, this post isn’t about what I shouldn’t eat! I am bringing you a recipe that I believe you will love that contains an ingredient that I JUST tried for the first time ever – quinoa.
Let me just say that the second I had that quinoa cooked and ready, my little boy (pictured above) tried it and absolutely fell in LOVE with it! He smacked away for 15 minutes on two huge bowlfuls! My husband and I literally fell out. If you know my son, you know he’s super picky about what he eats. If it isn’t fruit, applesauce, or the turkey hotdogs I feed him he probably doesn’t want it. Here is a picture of the finished product below.
***You can find this recipe HERE. *** Cookbook? What? Who doesn’t love Pinterest for a good recipe if nothing else right? I will say that this was truly an easy recipe to cook and it contained two ingredients that I knew were super nutrient-dense – quinoa and spaghetti squash. I have cooked with spaghetti squash several times recently and I absolutely love it. In the near future, I hope to bring several more dishes to you that I have tried out on my family and love! Let me know if you try this one!
This recipe is not the only thing that I found from Pinterest recently. I found this hairstyle on there recently and fell in LOVE! I have always loved a cute little side pony, but a side pony with a braid… Come one! You can’t beat that. Too much cuteness in one hairstyle! It’s Friday, so I also wanted to show my support for my team in hopes they win a game… SOON! I added the pink ribbon to my hairstyle to show my support for breast cancer awareness month. Most of us have loved ones who have or have had breast cancer in the past. If you are one of these people, show your support and donate to this cause. My husband is a State Farm agent here in Alabama and is participating in the “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign in our little town in Alabama. If you want to donate to the cause but are unsure how, you can donate here.
Thank you for reading and have a lovely weekend! I know I will. I get to go see my family on the MS Gulf Coast!
