This recipe from Women’s Running is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without packing in too many calories. Fruit, nuts and protein-rich quinoa team up to create a supercharged dessert!
- 3/4 cup quinoa
- 1 1/2 cups blueberries
- 1 1/2 cups raspberries
- 1 1/2 cups pineapple, cubed
- 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 3/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
- 3 Tbsp. honey, divided
- 1 tsp. lime zest
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- 1-inch piece ginger, finely minced
- 1 (14 oz.) can full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated for at least 4 hours
- 2 tsp. cornstarch
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 4 tsp. nutmeg
Place quinoa, 1 1/2 cups water and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered until quinoa is tender and water has absorbed (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat and let cool. Fluff quinoa with a fork, place in a large mixing bowl and toss with blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, nuts and mint. In a small saucepan, heat 2 Tbsp. honey, lime zest, lime juice and ginger over low heat until honey has liquefied. Pour honey mixture over quinoa mixture and toss to coat. Open the refrigerated can of coconut milk without shaking it, and scoop the thick cream that has risen to the top into a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream with the cornstarch until it has a whipped consistency. Scrape down the sides with a spatula, and beat in the remaining honey, vanilla and nutmeg. To serve, place quinoa fruit salad in serving bowls and top with cream.

The design trio of Mathew Orley, Alex Orley and Samantha Florence or Orley has recently expanded their knitwear collection to include winter accessories. We love these fun and whimsical gloves that will make your gloomy winter day just that much brighter. Retailing at $295 they are definitely pricey but their made in Italy top notch quality will make sure your hands are toasty warm for seasons to come.
I would be thrilled to find a pair hiding under my Christmas tree! I also wouldn’t complain it if the gloves were bundled with their beautiful printed scarves and adorable hats.

The hair, the make up, the lipstick! There are so many things to touch on from last nights Emmy Awards, we will get started with the most important: Who had the best hair and make up on the red carpet? Here are our favorite looks.
Connie Britton has hair that we all envy. Last night she topped her high-on-volume waves off with a chic side part. A warm, bronzed glow and neutral makeup completed her Emmys look.
January Jones was working a retro hair style and we think she pulled it off one hundred percent. The pale lavender eyeshadow on the inner corners of her eyes was gorgeous as well, and kept her look feeling fresh.
We just loved Anna Gunns Romantic up do. Her makeup is understated and the blush tones match her dress well.
Carrie Underwood went with a classic old Hollywood waves that she paired with a neutral makeup palette.
Kerry Washington’s soft, pretty makeup was so romantic. Her smoky, silvery purple eye makeup, pink cheeks, and understated pink lips were about as classy as you can get.
Megan Papay and Cristina Palomo are the due behind Fréda Salvador. With a background that includes stints at Anyi Lu and Calvin Klein, the designers have created a collection of oxfords and motorcycle boots that are beautifully crafted from leather and horsehair in El Salvador.
We are literally coveting every pair!
