Oooh! What a great giveaway! I went to the truRoots site, and I like the fact that they are combining science and ancient customs to create their product. I love it when a lot of thought and background goes into a product! Love your new header too!

OMG. You and I must be on the same mental wavelength. I have quinoa on my shopping list because I am finally going to be brave enough to make something with it! So thank you for posting this recipe!

My fav chef, Monica Pope (yes, she was on top chef masters) makes some yummy quinoa and bulgar dishes. Super yum.

I saw you over on Jen's Ink Pen and thought I would say hi! You look awesome...way to go on your weight loss success! Losing weight is so hard...your blog is that little inspiration I need just about right now! I work out really hard 4-5 days a week...but I love to eat...so I have a hard time losing! I only need to lose 15-20 lbs...but sometimes it seems like a huge mountain! One of these days I'll get it right!

Gina; The Candid RD said...

GREAT giveaway!!! I want it, please :) I LOVE quinoa.

Gina; The Candid RD said...

I couldn't figure out how to follow them on Facebook. Am I an idiot? I did check the "I like this page" button. Hopefully that counts for something!

Gina; The Candid RD said...

At their site I learned that quinoa can actually be eaten for breakfast. Who knew?! I also learned a new side dish; quinoa and pesto. YUM!

The Goodwin Family said...

Okay , I made the Southwestern Quinoa dip yesterday. After school my 15 yr old came home with a friend to study and do homework. I set the dip out with corn chips and crackers in front of them. They both loved it and gobbled it up. I had to rescue some for more husband.The true test is if your kids will eat it!! It was yummy!!!
Thanks

Tania said...

This is a great giveaway. I would be ecstatic to win. I'm always wanting to try new things, so this would be a great opportunity to bring some new items into my house to play with. On TruRoots website they said that the Incas believed quinoa gave life-supporting and healing gifts to their people. I think that's a pretty neat thing. To eat your food and have this knowledge about it's history makes it more than just mindless eating.

kelsalynn said...

I guess this is an entry but I was curious by your post and would have looked at their website anyway.

Quinoa is a good source of protein and fiber, while having a low glycemic index. That means it's likely a grain Michael and I can eat, which is awesome.

Thanks for sharing!

Allie said...

Just tried this recipe and I LOVE it! I had never tried quinoa, but I am a big fan now!

This is an awesome, awesome giveaway! I just discovered quinoa at a local stir fry place and want to incorporate it into my family's eating.

I had never heard of mung beans, but after looking at the website, they look amazingly yummy. The site had a great soup recipe, too!

I made quinoa over the weekend very similar to this, but instead of corn chips, i put in corn. I just ate it as a side dish. SO GOOD!
