Gluten-Free Flour Tortillas + a giveaway

Gluten-Free Flour Tortillas using Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Flour

I’m really excited to be sharing two things with you today:

1) A lightened up version of a classic recipe (hint: it involves jalapeños!)

2) A brand new gluten-free flour blend that I’m just crazy for.

We’ll start with the recipe though because the flour is what makes this recipe so fantastic.

I’ve always loved Mexican food – I’ve sang its praises here, here, here AND here – I seriously can’t get enough. If I had to choose one cuisine to eat for the rest of my days, it would be Mexican food (shh…don’t tell my Italian family that!).

Tex-Mex Quinoa Burgers

Tex-Mex Quinoa Burgers

So these burgers…

Where do I begin?

As summer is winding down, the nights are starting to get chillier and our fresh produce is reaching its peak, I’m feeling the need to soak up as much of this time of year as possible. From the food I’m eating, to the daily walks I take, to eating my lunch outside – it’s all part of the experience that we get to have for only a few short months a year.

Healthy Quinoa Carrot Cake

Healthy Gluten-Free Carrot Cake made with quinoa & almond flours!

Last week I turned 26. Twenty-freakin-six!

I’m not a big birthday person, don’t like being the center of attention and definitely don’t want people to make a big fuss over me, but I do always make sure I do something for me.

This year that meant cutting out of work early and going for a hike with my pup. That evening I also enjoyed a glass (or two) of rose on the porch with my parents and then we went out to a local restaurant that serves great farm-to-table food.

Oh, and I also baked myself a birthday cake :)

Quinoa & Veggie Collard Wraps

Veggie + Quinoa Collard Wraps - healthy, vegan lunch that will fill you up

I’ve recently fallen in love with collard wraps.

It stems from my love of sandwiches, which turned into a love for wraps in high school when I wanted to go lighter on the carbs and skip the bread. But now, while I still love my gluten-free wraps and sandwiches, I’ve realized that I can have that same exact lunch taste just as delicious, but pack it with even more veggies.

It’s basically like eating a salad just in wrap form. And by eating it in wrap form, it no longer tastes like that boring old salad. Instead, you’re eating a wholesome sandwich that’s loaded with nutrition.

It’s fun. It’s exciting. And it’s yummy.

Sizzlin’ Summer Milkshake (aka the Healthiest Peanut Butter Milkshake)

World's Healthiest Peanut Butter Milkshake - made with only 5 ingredients (and gluten-free & vegan!)

If any time of the year deserves a little shake up, it’s summer. We spend most of our year stuck in the daily grind of office life, sending our kids to school, or even sending ourselves to school, all while the daylight gets shorter and the weather gets colder.

It’s easy to get into a rut. And it’s hard to pull yourself out.

Which is precisely why summertime means it’s time to let loose. Shake things up. Do things different. Live life to the fullest. Enjoy every moment. Soak up the sun. Take our family to the beach. And laugh.
