5-Ingredient Vegan Quinoa Fudge

5-Ingredient quinoa fudge made gluten-free & vegan

Fudge is one of those things that I’ve never really eaten. I think it’s because it was never around when I was a kid and when I go to chocolate shops, I’d so much rather have a truffle or a chocolate caramel. But it’s one of those sweets that when I eat it, I’m shocked at how good it is. It’s velvety texture, it’s ultra rich flavor. It’s pure decadence. And I know it’s not healthy. Plus, it’s a … [Read more...]

Cheezy Kale & Quinoa Crackers

Are you a snacker? I personally have always been a snack person. My snack attacks usually hit sometime between 3 and 4 pm. I realize I still have a ways until dinner.

Sometimes it's satisfied by an apple, … [Read more...]

Black Bean Quinoa Bites with Vegan Queso Dip

As many of you know, it's been a stressful past few weeks. But what's made it easier is knowing that I have this group of people around me cheering for me, sending me notes and reassuring me that everything is going to be okay. And thankfully, it is. We came out the other side of a scary situation and in large part it's because of all the thoughts and prayers that were sent out way. I truly … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chia Pudding


I don't know a woman who doesn't love chocolate. For me, it's totally one of those foods that I wish was calorie-free, fat-free and so good for me that I could sit on my couch eating an entire bar without it immediately going to my hips. Sorry guys, you might not be able to relate, but gals, you know what I'm talking about, right? Right...? Please tell me I'm not alone in this. So when I create a … [Read more...]

Crispy Gluten-Free Granola Bars with Quinoa

Were you (or are you still) a fan of Nature Valley bars? When I was eating gluten, I was def a fan. I can't say that I ate them all the time, but whenever I broke open a packet of those super crispy granola bars, it was joyous. They were the perfect amount of crunch, without being overly sweet or nutty. My personal fave was the honey oat bars. Since I've been cooking with so many oats recently, … [Read more...]

Spicy Chocolate Popcorn with Quinoa

We're spicing things up over here. So, bring on the heat babayy! I'm a serious spice addict. If it was acceptable to put hot sauce on everything, I would do it. (I mean even if it's not, I'm probably going to do it anyway. I'm such a rebel. Watch out.) As uncomfortable as it is, having my mouth on fire, feeling like I could open it and flames would come out, I kinda love it. It's a twisted … [Read more...]

If you don't already know, I was born and raised in Vermont, and always … [Read more...]

Avocado Toast with a Twist


Today wer're talking about avocado. Why? Because I love it. Especially when it's mixed with quinoa and citrus and smeared on a piece of toasted bread. That my friends is what I call, and what many of my fellow bloggers have deemed, avocado toast. Only one of the best, most delectable, nutritious, amazing things ever. To me, there's almost nothing better than slicing into a perfectly ripe … [Read more...]
