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!

Whenever I share about our family off on another adventure I’m often asked about what it’s like travelling with three kids. Sometimes it will be comments like “brave mama” or something of the sort. Which I totally understand, it can seem so overwhelming to travel with kids. But I want to encourage you all to not hold back by how tired you might be ... or that you won’t be able to relax as much if your kids weren’t there. Travelling with your kids, seeing new places through their learning eyes is refreshing in itself. Tiring yes, but so so rewarding.
.
How do you feel about travelling with kids?
  • I made these for Mother’s Day and then decided to keep them
for myself. Ha!

Using my @canoncanada PIXMA Printer and
their restickable paper, I put together a quick and easy DIY that would make a perfect gift for someone.. or for yourself.
Personalized wine bottles!

There are even more DIY ideas at the link in my profile thanks
to Canon and their PIXMA Printers. #Sponsored

Thanks for ALL the recommendations for everything to do in Gibson’s and the surrounding area. There are SO MANY awesome locally owned shops we want to discover still. Today started with a 🛥 tour by @sunshinekayaking as we explored along @sunshinecoastbc and the surrounding islands, we grabbed ☕️ at @beachcombercoffee and 🍦 at @mikesplace2003 along with food at @black.bean.cafe #yum !

Explored a little along the 🏖 and then discovered everything within @gibsonspublicmarket — leaving with some 🧀 🥖 🍎 for afternoon snacks. See everything in my stories including some sea creatures from @nsmec 🦐 🐟 🦀 sooo cool!! A quick 🚎 ride home with @bc_transit for a rest before the kids start begging to go for a 🏊‍♂️ 🏊‍♀️... it’s definitely tiring travelling around all day with three kiddos but my mamas some sort of superhero and their eagerness to learn and love for exploring makes it 💫🙌🏻🥰

One more day to #exploreBCbybus — excited to see what’s to come.
  • I’m surprised you can’t see the wrinkles on our bodies from the camera after our three hour swim this afternoon. 
We got up at 630AM to make sure we had enough time to finish packing 🤦🏼‍♀️ and drive out to catch our @bcferries — after a quick ⛴ ride over we all hopped on the @bc_transit city 🚎 into Gibson’s and then further into Sechelt ... where we became water prunes. 🏊 
I’ve been asked to share an article for @bc_transit on our experience as we #exploreBCbybus 🚎 — the next few days I’ll be sharing on my Stories some of the places we explore too! I’d love to hear your recommendations on places to eat, thanks to a lovely follower for suggesting dinner at 🍔 @pklsburgers, we are pleasantly stuffed.

Where should we go next?? 🌊 ☀️ We’ll be around Gibson’s and Sechelt the next two days.

Also, just gotta add... my mom makes a pretty great #InstagramGrammy 🙌🏻🥰🤣
  • You don’t need to birth a child to be a mama. I don’t talk about being a step-mama very often, mostly because overall it doesn’t feel any different then being a mama to the kiddos I birthed. Everyone’s journey to motherhood looks and feels different, some may seem easier but each unique with their own challenges. Wherever you are in your motherhood journey today, I want to say that you are loved, you are appreciated and you are exactly what the child you are mothering needs.
