I was craving dessert so bad the other night, and for any of you fellow gluten free readers will totally understand, eating GF dessert can be hard to do. At parties, a lot of restaurants, it is impossible to eat dessert. So once in awhile after dinner you just want dessert, real bad. As for you non gluten free peeps, sometimes you just really want dessert but not all the carbs that go with it. So let me just tell you, I figured out a recipe that is delish. Apple Pie, without the crust or carbs.
Apple Pie Quinoa
1 cup quinoa
1 tbsp. butter
2 apples, cored and diced
2 tsp. dark brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup almond milk
Directions: Cook quinoa according to directions on package, set aside. Add 1/2 tbsp. butter to a skillet and melt over medium heat. Add apples. Sauté apples until caramelized and tender. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over apples and stir to coat. Add milk to the skillet, and then add the quinoa and remaining butter. Gently stir all the ingredients together and done.
How great is that!? A dessert full of deliciousness AND protein AND no carbs. Hellllllo jackpot, who wouldn’t want to eat this kind of dessert!? Eat less supper because you’re going to the get protein you need to fill you up through dessert.
Now, I understand that most of my blog readers are female. So because of this I always write fashion tips based on women’s fashion. But the other day I had a male friend suggest I start writing some of my posts directed at guys, because lets be serious, a lot of them need help with style. Or their girlfriends and wives (yes you girls reading this right now, I’m talking to you) sometimes wonder how to dress their men. So to start off I’m going to suggest, Lululemon (duhh I know, you all could have guessed this). It is almost impossible to buy male clothing from Lulu and it look bad. That stores got style. There V Neck t-shirts are AMAZING. The material is fantastic, AND they look so good on. The black v neck is a great look and goes with everything, and their bright colours are fantastic as well. Here’s the black v neck (ladies, stop starring at the hot model, and look at how good the t-shirt he’s wearing looks!! Dress your men in one of these, and he will look that good too!!) And real men wear pink right? Here’s the v neck on sale!!! (Told ya Lulu has sales.) Keep an eye on the “We made too much” section on Lulu, and quite often they will have the V Neck in colours on sale.
So once you’re wearing this beautiful shirt, PLEASE don’t let your boyfriend or husband ruin their outfit by putting on ugly shoes. Shoes are SO important. They complete an outfit (or they can totally ruin an outfit). And from my experience, guys don’t care about what they put on their feet, even though they should. So the answer? Toms. Don’t think I’m crazy. I don’t mean the Toms that girls wear, I mean these other fantastic Toms. Journeys is a great shoe store, and for all of you people who won’t leave the Waterloo area, Conestoga Mall now has a Journeys.
All you girls can now make your men both fit (by eating delicious healthy dessert) AND can make them look so fantastic! Men’s style really isn’t hard…just don’t be scared to go outside the box a little. (And for any of you reading this who are men, that makes me so excited you’re reading this!!)
