If you haven’t figured it out just yet I love to eat. That doesn’t necessarily mean that I am eating “bad” foods. I like to mix up. One day you may catch me eating a maple glazed gf donuts and the other cooked quinoa with a drizzle of maple. I try to make healthy and real food choices and least 90 percent of the time.

    I love quinoa, but I’ve never considered making it sweet instead of savory… Sounds yummy though!
