My favorite candy is Reese’s and so naturally my favorite ice cream is peanut butter chocolate. I thought I would give this a try and it exceeded my expectations. Will be trying different combinations the rest of the summer and saving my ice cream punch card for a treat day!
Lets talk about Quinoa. Its a great grain. Really, a superior grain. Quinoa is closely related to the Spinach family. It packs a full 12 grams of protein per 1/2 cup serving (vs wild brown rice which comes in at 3 grams per half cup).
The taste of quinoa will take on what you cook it in. Cook it in veggie or chicken stock for a savory flavor, coconut water for a sweeter taste, or plain water if you want to season the quinoa after cooking. It is so healthy and so versatile.
Use it in salads, side dishes or as breakfast cereal. Truly packed with nutrition and possibility. Some people are initially put off by the texture but its easy to get used to and start incorporating it into your menus as a healthy alternative to rices and cereals. Quinoa is your friend, I promise.
One thing I really start missing about summer time, during these cold months, is grilled food. I decided to wait a few more weeks before dusting off the grill because Northern Virginia weather is varying from 70 degrees to 40 degrees on a daily basis.
To satisfy my cravings for grilled citrus chicken, I adapted a Pollo Asado recipe from Ree Drummond (aka the Pioneer Woman). I chose to pair my chicken taco with pico de gallo, avocado, corn and salsa verde. You can go any way with this dish (beans, sour cream, cheese and so on).
I have a lot of things to say in this post - so just one title doesn't seem to do it justice.
