Meatless Monday: Product Reviews!
Happy Monday everyone! Another new beginning! Let’s all strive to make this week wonderful!
Last night I was able to do quite a bit of meal prepping for this week and complete a few things that needed to be done for some classes and student council I feel ready for this new week and plan on getting into my studying routine!
Today’s Meatless Monday post is different than the one’s in the past, but I am really excited to share new protein packed meatless products with all of you!
So what better day than Meatless Monday!?
One of the products is a totally new-to-me product which is surprising seeing as how I am a quinoa fanatic and have been for a few years now…
GOGO Quinoa has a great product that I tried out this morning called Organic Quinoa Flakes
I have never tried quinoa flakes before, despite their prevalence within the blog world, but this morning I was very eager to try my new purchase!
Since quinoa flakes are new to me, I was unsure as to how to cook them, so I read the cooking instructions on the box which were not too helpful to say the least!
How much liquid?
It would have been nice if they provided me with this important tid bit of information, but I made a guesstimate and my quinoa flakes turned out quite lovely
Quinoa Flake Porridge
40 g quinoa flakes, dry
1 cup almond milk, boiled
I poured the 1 c of milk into my bowl of quinoa flakes once it had came to a boil. Then I stirred the quinoa flakes a few times and…
I added in fresh raspberries and walnuts, too
I really enjoyed these quinoa flakes I loved the texture – very light and fluffy and I was really happy that they tasted like quinoa! It sounds funny, but I didn’t know if the quinoa flakes would have the same nutty quinoa taste that the quinoa seed has! It definitely did and I loved it I enjoyed quinoa flakes in the form of a porridge, but I am already thinking of other ways to use them! Next time, I plan on making a quinoa bake I also want to make some type of dessert, too! The box provides a date square recipe that looks quite intriguing and I have a container of dates, so…
The other product that I want to share with you is one of my favourites!
I found this sprouted brown rice, lentil, and flax mix at a local health food store
I love the combination. The sprouted brown rice is so sweet, the lentils become soft, and the flax adds a lovely nutty flavour that I can’t get enough of
My kitchen smells absolutely wonderful when I have this cooking
I enjoyed this for my dinner along with chicken and broccoli
A perfect combo of lean protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats
You can easily make this combo on your own by mixing the ingredients on your own I will definitely be doing that after I finish the package of the pre-mixed stuff!
Did you celebrate meatless Monday?
What did you have for dinner tonight?
What are your plans for the rest of the day? I will be doing more studying! Finals are approaching! My first exam is exactly one week away!
Have a good night friends!
