Easy Quinoa Recipes, Call Me Maybe + Gangnam Style, and Giveaway!

Hey guys!

New FOOD BITES video! This one is on quick and creative ways to cook with quinoa. Also makes fab school and work lunches – super portable and adorable. In the vid, I show you how to make healthy quinoa sushi and jack-o-lantern bell pepper quinoa cups. I know you will love these! Please tweet me pics @Blogilates or facebook them to me when you try!

Also, one of our POPsters Susan just brought to my attention the mash-up of Call Me Maybe and Gangnam Style. Am I dreaming!? Umm – LOVE!!!! I might just have to do a workout to this!!!! Give it a listen:

Anddddd just for fun, I’m gonna do a giveaway as a BIG thanks for all of your love and support last week. It really meant a lot to me that you guys tweeted and emailed me your concern regarding my burnout breakdown. So as a thank you, I’ll be giving away a TRAIN LIKE A BEAST LOOK LIKE A BEAUTY top! I’m gonna make this a twitter contest just because I find that it is easier to choose random winners there!

Here are the rules:

  1. Make sure you’re subscribed to all of my YouTube channels: Blogilates (new workouts weekly), BlogilatesTV (FOOD BITES, vlogs), and Livestrongwoman (my new home for Pilates Bootcamp)
  2. Tweet me @Blogilates and @LIVESTRONG_COM the YouTube link to your fave Blogilates workout.
  3. Hashtag it #trainlikeabeastlooklikeabeauty <– this is really important! If you don’t do that, I can’t use my randomizer to find your entry!

That’s all! Contest ends Friday night. I’ll tweet out the winner then! Feel free to enter/tweet me as many times as you’d like! By telling me your fave workouts, it helps me to get a better idea of what you wanna see more of! So…tweet wisely :)

Yay!!! Off to choreograph a new workout for you…I’m really thinking about that Gangnam/Call Me Maybe combo…hmmm…should I do it!???

Kay talk to you later! Love you!

Now I can have my sushi & actually eat it too lol & not feel guilty about it ;)/ btw I’ve found that amino acids can replace soy sauce & cuts the sodium by almost a third & tastes just the same ! I’ve found it at fresh& easy & it also goes great with stir fry it’s quick & easy & guiltless !

    I’ve been packing my mom’s lunches this week! She will be so surprised and happy! So will her body!

  • Those both look delicious! I have some a huge batch of quinoa I made earlier this week… hmmm…. maybe I should try one of those meals. Mmm. You are so entertaining/funny during the food bites, haha. I especially liked the part where you “subtitled” what you were saying with your mouth closed while you were eating.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!
