Kiwi & Berry Quinoa Parfait

Lightly sweetened quinoa layered between a perfectly tart kiwi smoothie and a refreshingly sweet berry smoothie.  The inspiration of this dish came from buying a Costco box of golden kiwis on a whim.

Fruit and yogurt rolled up into the perfect breakfast treat

Fruit Breakfast Burrito

“Breakfast burrito” has a whole new meaning today!

Avocado Waffle

Avocado toast have been SUCH big deal lately, and I have zero complaints about it!

Nectarine & Strawberry Salad w/ Ginger Lime Dressing

Easy Poke Bowl

  When all your coastal friends are posting pictures of their poke bowls from all the trendy restaurants/food trucks, but you’re stuck in Texas, you just gotta suck it up and make one yourself. After doing a little research, I learned that poke means “to cut” or “to slice,” and that it’s pronounced po-KAY, notRead more
