West Coast Cobb Salad

You guys, it’s almost laughable how long it takes me to come up with names for my recipes. And mind you, it involves ZERO research. Yeah, pathetic. I don’t look up SEO or anything.

Chickpea Turmeric Quinoa Bowl

Fancy a few superfoods? Well, then you need this Chickpea Turmeric Quinoa Bowl!

When you’re a food that’s lumped in the category of “super foods,” you must feel pretty fantastic. There’s likely plenty of publicity and notoriety along with hoards of people flocking to get your autograph. Ok, maybe it’s not quite like that, but I sure love the idea of food celebrities, don’t you? Kale and blueberries slipping into limos while shielding their eyes from the flash bulbs of the paparazzi. Fun!
