Today my friends, is Day 2 of my special Week of Quinoa Christmas Cookies and I'm thrilled to be sharing this new recipe with you!

Beets and Chocolate. An usually delicious combination. Yes, it's true. I'm guilty. Another gluten-free quick bread recipe.

A new breakfast treat. Sweet and healthy. I'm always looking for new breakfast ideas. It's the most important meal of the day, so when I'm reviewing recipes I look for ones that are extremely healthy. I want protein, not too much sugar, and tons of flavor.
