A hearty meal stuffed into a healthy pepper! Beefy taco meat, corn, queso, cilantro and quinoa stuffed into fresh bell pepper halves. Use a spicy large pepper in place of the bells if you want to kick it up a bit. I was lucky enough to inherit some of the gorgeous bell peppers from my mom […]

Bacon Zucchini Asiago Fresco Frittata and a Black Cube Frying Pan Product Review ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #egg #brunch #recipe & #productreview

It has felt like Christmas in July at my house the past couple days. I’ve had a few different people contact me asking if I’d like to try their products. I love times like this–it makes all the work of the blog seem a little more worthwhile. Not that it isn’t a joy to do […]


Protein Power Chocolate Banana Oatmeal

Protein Power Chocolate Banana Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fast #breakfast #recipe

Super Quick Power Oatmeal! I love a bowl of good oatmeal for breakfast, especially when it is quick and easy and healthy–and decadent. I was travelling last weekend and needing a good breakfast.

This morning I woke up at about 8 am and thought to myself “I am going to go to yoga at 9”. This doesn’t leave me much time, of course, to do my do my normal morning rituals … I did fit in a few minutes to check facebook and a cup of chai, but […]

Cinnamon Chocolate Chia Pudding

Cinnamon Chocolate Chia Pudding

So I have these chia seeds that I won from Lauren at Nutri-Savvy and Ruth’s Foods and I’ve heard they make a nice pudding … tapioca-like. Well, of course I had to try a chocolate version. I added a little cinnamon because I love the taste of cinnamon and chocolate together: the taste combination reminds me of Mexican […]


Baked Strawberry Walnut Quinoa Bites

Baked Strawberry Quinoa Walnut Bites

I’ve been intrigued with the idea of baking with quinoa for a while now, so when I stumbled across this pretty muffin recipe from Poor Girl Eats Well, I really wanted to try it. They turned out a little differently what I expected, though, which is why I’m not calling them muffins. When I think of […]
