Healthier Food Choices

For example why quinoa is better: Quinoa is a complete protein based grain, so it contains all the amino acids necessary for our nutritional needs.  It is super high in iron and calcium, as well as a good source of magnesium, copper, and fiber.  White rice is a carbohydrate based grain.  It may have slightly less calories per serving than quinoa, but it’s irrelevant since the gluten and carbs in the rice turn into sugar after we consume it, which can eventually turn to unwanted fat.  Quinoa on the other hand, processes through our body efficiently, providing fuel as a clean protein.  This make quinoa the better choice every time!

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Heat until tender. Add almond milk, beans, cauliflower, shallot, garlic, lemon juice, remaining 2 tbsp olive oil to blender. Blend until smooth. Taste, add salt & pepper as needed, & blend again. I had to add a good amount of salt and pepper to get it to my liking.

Strawberry Shortcake Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 12 muffin tins with silicone or foil liners, (or just use a silicone muffin pan). Place all of the ingredients (except the strawberries) in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are smooth. Pour mixture into a medium sized bowl, and stir in strawberries. Divide remaining 1/2 cup diced strawberries over the top of each muffin. Divide the batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Dashing Dish

2 1/2 cup Oats (old fashioned kind, not quick cooking)
1 cup Plain non-fat greek yogurt
2 Eggs
3/4 cup Sweetener of choice, (that measures the same as sugar) or 1/4 cup baking stevia sweetener (or 12-15 packets of stevia)  
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 1/2 cup Strawberries, diced, and patted dry + (optional 1/2 cup strawberries, diced to place on top of muffins)
Optional 1 tsp lemon juice
Note* The paper liners don’t work well when baking with a base that does not include flour (which is the case with this recipe), they always seem to stick to the paper. If you don’t have a silicone muffin tin or liners, I recommend buying the foil cupcake liners at the store, and removing the paper inserts so you are only using the foil part of the liner! That way no sticking will occur!

While this may sound like a silly, simple question I wanted to know: What are healthy foods and why do people eat them?

To us, healthy foods are those that are nutrient-rich. This means that they contain an abundance of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients (nutrients only found in plants, many of which are antioxidants) and fiber. Nutrients are important because your body
