sweet & spicy quinoa

I haven’t been posting nearly as much as I normally do.  Life is just simply getting in the way.  But, you can rest assured that I am still eating like I normally do – just more!

Breakfasts have been smoothies, as usual. 🙂

My favorite Chocolate Cherry Bomb Smoothie.  This smoothie is thick, delicious and packed with protein and nutrients which is perfect for my growing belly!

And, I love that it is pink. 🙂

Check out the banana that I used today!

Along with my smoothie, I snacked on a piece of homemade apple raisin walnut bread made by Lauren.  It is super delicious!

Lunch included some leftovers from dinner.  I decided to try out Angela’s Mandarin & Maple Spiced Quinoa with Cranberries, Apricots, and Almonds.

This was absolutely delicious!

It was sweet from the maple and dried fruit and spicy from the cinnamon and nutmeg.  We all really loved it.  I will definitely be making it again!

Served on a bed of spinach for some greens with dinner.

Definitely go try it out!  It will be a crowd pleaser.

I am so excited for the weekend…lot’s of stuff to do. 🙂  Have a great one!
