EatStrong {Veggie & Egg Quinoa}

I was fortunate enough to be able to sample EatStrong’s new Trail Mix and Energy Bar. 

The Energy Bar is basically a huge bar of peanut butter with a nice crunch to it and “chocolate chips” (organic cocoa) liberally incorporated throughout, but still only has the average 230 calories most energy .  I didn’t know what to expect when I opened it because the color is a bit off-putting… but the taste is so good!  And it kept me full for a few hours. 

The snack mix includes cashews, flax, sunflower seeds, walnuts, pistachios, almonds, and organic cocoa drops.  The bag has the perfect amount to satisfy and is full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.  The chocolate drops were obviously my favorite, but the rest was good, too.  The snack mix is a little more calorie dense, but only by a little bit at 260.  It also kept me full for quite a while.

I was pretty impressed with the products and the simple ingredient list.  It’s convenient and delicious.  Try it out!!

I figured I’d keep with the healthy topic and give a healthy recipe today because I do actually try to eat well aside from all the baking I do. 

Veggie and Egg Quinoa (For one)


1/4 cup quinoa
1/2 cup water
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 a medium sized onion
1 plum tomato
1 egg
Seasoned Salt to taste
Garlic Salt to taste


1.  Bring the water to a boil and add your quinoa.  Cook quinoa until the water has soaked up.
2.  Chop the veggies and heat in the microwave 1-2 minutes.
3.  Cook your egg however you want it.  I scrambled mine.
4.  Add all ingredients in a saucepan and saute for 2-5 minutes.

  1. Yum!! This is definitely my kind of meal! I'll give a try one of these days. 🙂

    I've never heard of Eatstrong before. I'd like to try that bar…has all the ingredients I like and would be something quick to eat at work on the days I work double shifts and only have a 10 min. break between shifts. I gotta have something high in energy to keep me going.

    Have a nice weekend, Katie! 🙂 Cheers! sheila


  2. The trail mix looks really yummy. I'm searching for a good trail mix to snack on, but nothing I've tried so far can compare to the Berry Trail mix I got from an Amish market in Lancaster, PA. I think I need to add this one to my must try list.


  3. haha! i was a little wary at first, too!
    the first time i tried it, i didn't wash it and it tasted sooo gross!!
    it's crazy how big of a difference washing it can make!
