These deliciously sweet and savoury quinoa bites are a taste of fall. The ingredients include vegetables of the season that are not only so good for you but combined taste great. The perfect healthy snack recipe!

I’ve been talking a lot lately about living a healthier lifestyle. Spending more time on myself and making sure that my body, mind and soul are feeling refreshed and refuelled.

Sweet and Savoury Quinoa Bites Recipe | Foods to Strengthen your Eyes

Considering what foods I am eating and reflecting on how they make me feel afterwards has been a focus of mine for the last 8 weeks. I started my workout journey, had my eyes recently examinded and set some goals to better self care.

It’s pretty cool how the things we eat can change and enhance different parts of our bodies. Like our eyes for example, there are so many foods that can strengthen our eyes and it’s so important to consider cooking with these foods to make sure we are absorbing those nutrients.

Sweet & Savoury Quinoa Bites Recipe

“Full of nutritious autumn ingredients like apples and butternut squash, these quinoa bites are delicious. If you feel like sharing with your family, they are perfect for introducing your little one to finger foods. They hold together well in your hands and fall apart easily in your mouth.”  –Love Child Organics

Ingredients 

  • 1 1/2 cups of cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup grated butternut squash
  • 1 medium sized apple, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 small onion, minced
  • 2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons raisins or cranberries (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried powdered sage (optional)
  • 1 egg

Directions

Step One: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper

Step Two: Grate apple, once finished bring it all together and squeeze out the juice. (Squeeze it into a drinking cup, put it in the fridge and you have fresh squeezed juice for later too!)

Step Three: Mix together drained apple and all other ingredients. Mix until fully combined.

Step Four: Create 1 inch round balls and place an inch apart on the baking sheet.

Step Five: Bake in the oven until the sides start to darken. About 15 minutes.

These quinoa bites will last for several days in the fridge and are best served at room temperature or slightly warm. Enjoy your new healthy snack recipe for breakfast or any time of day!

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠

Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
