How to Make Coconut Quinoa

by Admin Mealprep on August 31, 2020 No comments

Coconut Quinoa is super easy to make! You only need 4 ingredients to create a fluffy and slightly sweet batch of quinoa. The ratio to cook quinoa is generally 1:2 (1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of coconut milk). 

STEP 1: CHOOSE INGREDIENTS

You need quinoa, coconut milk, water, and maple syrup for this recipe!

Coconut Milk: We like to use full-fat coconut milk for our coconut quinoa. It offers the best flavor and the best creamy texture!

Quinoa: You can use any color of quinoa that you would like! We generally have white quinoa in our kitchen, but any color will do.

Sweetener: Maple syrup is one of our favorite natural sweeteners! We love the flavor the maple gives the coconut quinoa. However, feel free to use honey or agave as a sweetener substitute!

STEP 2: LET IT COOK

To prepare the quinoa, place coconut milk, water, maple syrup, and quinoa in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil over high heat.

Next, turn the heat to low, cover the saucepan and let the quinoa cook for about 20 minutes or until the quinoa is cooked!

STEP 3: SERVE

Remove the quinoa from the heat and serve immediately or let the quinoa cool completely before storing it in a meal prep container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It’s perfect for meal prep throughout the week!

The 8 Known Carcinogens That Lurk in Most Of Our Homes

by admin on September 26, 2019 No comments
Limited daily exposure to toxins is tough in a pretty toxic world, but it’s a reasonable expectation that we all want to kick known carcinogens out of our homes. To that end, we asked Cara Bondi, a green scientists at Seventh Generation, to explain what’s on the top of her list. “It’s important to give context around how things are determined to be carcinogens and how they’re classified,” she explains. “The two classifications that we pay attention to are compounds that are known to be carcinogens—definitively proven, there’s no question about it—and then probably carcinogens. These are ingredients or chemicals that are reasonably anticipated to be carcinogens, they just need a little bit more data to push them over the edge. So for context, we lump those together.” Below Bondi explains what carcinogens can commonly be found in most homes. (For more on kicking toxins out of your home, see The Dirty on Getting Clean.)
