I loved reading all of the comments on my planning ahead and fitness posts. The blogging community is quite the inspirational group. 🙂 Now, let’s jump into Marvelous Monday.

Marvelous is a new quinoa recipe (at the bottom of this post).

Always laughing and dancing! It’s the only way to live. 🙂

Marvelous is making Chocolate Covered Katie’s chocolate chip blondies (she makes the best healthy desserts).


Marvelous is being with my parents. So much love.

My parents are always eager to let me raid their kitchen take some of their food. I made this quinoa recipe using ingredients they had in their kitchen. Easy, delicious and healthy.
