Guest Recipe of the Day: Quinoa, Avocado, and Corn Salad

Base:
– Raw kernels of 2 ears of corn, shaved right from cob
– 2 avocados, sliced and cut into 1” pieces
– 1 1/2 cups dry quinoa
– 3 Tbs. red onion, finely chopped
Dressing:
– 1 Tbs. lemon juice
– 1 Tbs. olive oil
– 2 Tbs. low-sodium tamari
– 1 Tbs. brown rice vinegar

Pre-prep: Be sure to soak the quinoa overnight in water and rinse well before using.

1. In a saucepan place 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add the quinoa to the hot water, and simmer until the water is absorbed and the grains become translucent soft (about 10-15 minutes). Pour through a strainer and set to the side in a bowl.

2. Blend all the dressing ingredients together until smooth in a blender, or simply add them to a bowl and whisk well with a fork.

3. Shave the kernels of raw corn right off the cob with a large knife, and add to the quinoa along with the avocadoes and chopped onion. Mix well.

4. Pour the dressing on top of the mixture and mix well again. Enjoy this yummy dish with relish!

Current Music Obsession!!!

ImageI so love writing this type of blog post because music is what drives me. Music is what motivates me and it’s my escape into my own little world. So for the past few months I have been playing this little six song “EP” that has been just a little bundle of joy in my life. Ahh i have never experienced music that has just captivated me and just been my latest love and obsession. I have been listening to “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly.” This “EP” is just amazing. Everything about it is just so perfect. I am literally in love with every song and whenever I get some time to pop in my headphones I switch to “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly” I play the hell out of those six songs. Tori Kelly’s voice is new and funky. She has her own little style and personality and her music just echoes who she really is plus her voice is flawless. “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly” is like a little chill little mix of songs you can just pop in some headphones and bump it anywhere. It is what I would say feel good music. Listening to her “EP” the songs give me so much hope. I feel like I can do anything because Tori Kelly knew that this is what she wanted to do and she believed and had enough faith to know that anything is possible in life. She isn’t backed by a major label or any big marketing team and her biggest supporters are her fans, friends and family and with that support she succeeded and she produced a kick ass “EP”. I find it so cool that one’s person journey can be so inspiring to me and hopefully others. My favorite song on the EP has to be “Eyelashes”. This song is so my life and probably so many other girls life lol. I’m sure everyone has gone through this situation. Another one of my favs is “Confetti”. This song man this song is just the truth. We all dream of bigger things that we want now and never want to just let life and the great things we have ahead come to us in due time. Basically this song is telling people to slow down and enjoy life and be happy. I can see Tori Kelly doing some amazing things when she finally puts out her debut album. I would love everyone to just click this link “Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly” and please support her and buy her “EP” on iTunes 🙂 You won’t be disappointed!!! xoxo<3

Fortune Favors the Brave

Fortune Favors the Brave

I was reading a blog this morning and this little quote came up. “Fortune favors the brave” It’s a very to the point quote and I love it. Basically when you break it down it’s saying in life when you take risks, step out of your comfort zone and do something out of the ordinary but amazing at the same time, the benefits and good fortune you can reap is out of this world. Have you ever had a time you didn’t take that one risks you knew you should have. Well God is a God of multiple chances so it’s never to late to just go after everything your heart desires. Make that big move today and just go out an do something you never did before that you’ve always wanted to do. (P.S make sure it’s good and legal lol) XoXoBesos❤
