Foodie Thursdays


I'm starting this new series called Foodie Thursdays where i'll try to post some recipes that I cook at home. I'm not a chef or have very high cooking skills so all recipes are easy to do and also very affordable.

This week I will start with a desert and a quinoa recipe. 
In my house we are being more conscientious about our bodies so we start to exercise more and eat more healthy. so we ditch the rice and pastas everyday (now its only on cheat day).

Here this week's recipe.

Quinoa pilaf

1 cup of quinoa
2 cups of water
1 can of chickpeas
handful of green beans
alt peeper and paprika

How to do:
Start by cooking the quinoa in a medium saucepan and bringing to a boil. Once boiling, keep covered and turn the heat to low. Cook the quinoa for 20-25 minutes.
Wash the green beans and cook in water until tender. 
Meanwhile place the drained chickpeas in a pan with olive oil and paprika and roast for 5 minutes.
Mix everything and season with salt and pepper and voilá.

Peanut Butter Banana Frozen Yogurt

2 frozen bananas
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 serve of protein powder (optional)
Favorite Toppings

How to do:
Place bananas, yogurt, peanut butter, and the protein powder in a blender and blend until smooth and no more frozen banana chunks remain.
Place in a plastic container. Cover and freeze for about 1 hour
you may want to put in the blender again for a more soft consistence.
top with your favorite toppings. I choose chocolate and coconut
