{Nourish} Irresistible Quinoa Breakfast Cereal

Quinoa Breakfast with Strawberries, Pistachio and Chocolate

My mission as a chef and dietitian is to inspire people to create meals that taste great and are great for you too. But let’s be honest, creating a unique flavor combination can often feel overwhelming. That is why I teamed up with Curate Snacks! They have spent endless hours in the kitchen curating unique ingredient pairings and flavor profiles for their new line of bars. These bars are proof that wholesome and delicious are not mutually exclusive! I love how Curate combines nourishing ingredients to create wonderfully surprising, flavorful combinations that are really satisfying and taste great. From the bright pop of orange zest to the crunchy texture of quinoa and the smooth creaminess of almond butter, the flavors and ingredients in the Curate Irresistible Dark Chocolate bar, inspired me to create this breakfast cereal. Bonus, you can probably whip this up with ingredients you have hanging around your house!

{Nourish} Strawberries Galore + Crave Worthy “Use ‘Em Up” Recipes

FotorCreated

Strawberries are in season…YAY! Nothing beats an in-season local strawberry and their sun-kissed warmth and  sweetness fresh from the field—it is magical. Last weekend we went on a strawberry picking adventure with Hudson and it was so much fun! I think Hudson ate more berries than made it into the basket but fortunately we had our berry picking game faces on! We went home with  hundreds of berries and our were shirts covered with berry stains to boot–it looked like there was a massacre on the farm, hahaha. As you may have noticed I have been actively trying to cut down on our contribution to the food waste epidemic so I went into a bit of a panic when i realized just how many berries we were bringing home! Panic quickly turned into action as soon as I made it to the kitchen though as I was determined to use each and every one…here is how!
