I want to eat healthy but I have limited time. We’ve got two cooking appliances that will save you time when cooking our healthy recipes! Did you know that a rice cooker isn’t just for cooking rice? It’s perfect for recipes that include quinoa, faro, oatmeal and other grains. An extra bonus is rice cookers are fairly The best inexpensive too. It’s definitely worth it to step back and let the rice cooker work while you prepare the rest of the meal. Take a look at this article from Mom Advice about How to Make Quinoa in the Rice Cooker.

Have you ever wanted to make your own healthy dressing? A great one to try is a lemon based vinaigrette. Instead of turning to the bottled lemon juice squeeze your own! A lemon squeezer is the best way to go about doing this. It's also great for making this healthy, warm drink.  Pour  12 oz of hot water into a mug and add 1 tsp coconut oil, 1" slice of fresh ginger,  and juice from 1/2 a lemon. Stir and when the coconut oil has melted it's ready to enjoy!

Once you have learned how to cook quinoa, have a rice cooker and a lemon squeezer give our Quinoa with Black Beans and Lemon Dressing a shot!

Happy Food Friday!
