Quinoa Vegetable Muffins

14 Feb

Thanks for all the awesome tips about weight lifting ! Im loving doing it so far.ย  I obv try to look like Mrs. America when I go to the gymImage

I got a good amount of emails about my quinoa muffins, I’m so excited to share it with you I have made them 3x already! Perfect to bring to for school ๐Ÿ™‚


Quinoa Vegetable Muffins
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup egg Whites
2 Whole eggs
2 cups chopped vegetables*
1/2 cup nutritional yeast*

1 tbs soy suace
1 clove of garlic, minced
salt/pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Whisk the eggs and egg whites in a bowl.ย  Stir in veggies, nutritional yeast, soy sauce and quinoa. Scoop mixture into oiled muffin tins.ย  Bake for 40 minutes. Makes 12-20 regular sized muffins.

*Vegetables I have used so far:
1/2c onion, 1/2c pepper and 1 cup spinach.
1/2c onion, 1/4c zucchini, 1/4c pepper, 1 cup kale
just make sure they are chopped very small!

*If you want to substitute vegan or regular cheese for the nutritional yeast you can, tastes just as good!


On another note, as today being Valentines Day, I was suppose to go out with a friend but we went out for sushi last night instead.ย  I came home to this on my car


So cute, too bad I don’t know who it is from ! Like the coffee thing, I just don’t get it.ย  I said it was my parents but they would tell me by now lol I apparently have a valentine, score. I think.

Right now I am sitting my butt on the couch stuffed from the lobster my dad bought me for vday :-)! It was my first time having it and I enjoyed it, would never order it at a restaurant I was eating that thing like an animal.

What Makes Me Happy: My show survivor is back on! ekkkkkk. I have to go on that show, I know I have said it before.ย  I really gotta look into how to get on it. I’d kill it !ย  Orrrrrr i’d sit in the corner and cry if people talked about me.

Are you a survivor fan?

Whats your favorite way to eat quinoa? I really need to get some new ways !

    Aww! That’s the sweetest surprise ever! I wonder who your secret admirer is… Be sure to tell us who it is when you find out ๐Ÿ˜€ And those muffins look delicious and seriously make me want to try out whipping up a batch of savory muffins for myself. I have to admit that I’m not really the biggest fan of eating quinoa straight up, so maybe it would be easier in muffin form ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I am unable to chew to well, I will have to wait but I love that you can add a variety of different vegetables and not use the same ones each and every time. Happy Valentines Day!
