Tasty Eats

I don't really post much about food, but lately a lot of you have been asking about what I eat so I thought I'd share two of my favorite healthy (and super easy) recipes...
My best friend showed me this black bean, orange, and corn quinoa salad recipe and I've been making it for dinner all summer long. It's so hearty and fresh.
Because I am an avocado fiend, I love making these spinach, goat cheese and avocado grilled cheese sandwiches. I use spelt bread and whip up my own pesto.
And last but not least, coconut water (it's not food, I know). It tastes so much better straight from the coconut, trust me.

Heee,

I'm sorry for my misunderstanding, but do you eat that 'black bean, orange, and corn quinoa salad' as your dinner or with your dinner?

Hope to hear from you,

Love, S.

Those first two pictures look like art. The colours are so bright and cheery, it would make you want to eat it. My mum recently became vegan, so we've been eating a lot of quinoa lately, she says it's the "grain of the future"
