The Healthy Eat On-The-Go: Cucina & Amore Quinoa Meals

Since deciding to eat a vegan diet the main question I'm asked besides what made me decide to go vegan is "what do you eat?"  While it seems that almost everything today has an animal attached to it in some way, there is a growing array of foods that are becoming more known to folks and prepared without using anything from an animal.  However, I'm often faced with the third most asked question of "what do you eat when you just want something quick and fast?"  That has probably been the most tasking undertaking.  Finding fast without forsaking the health factor can be hard.  

This is why I find delicious discoveries like Cucina & Amore delightful.  Started by Ruth Wilkinson, a working mother who wanted more healthy meals for women like herself, Cucina & Amore offer up healthy foods that are easy to prepare and free of growth hormones and preservatives.  Music to my ears!  The company's new Quinoa Meal brings you a healthy whole grain base with a flavorful accompaniment and they keep it as easy as 1, 2, 3.

You get a cup of ready made white quinoa and a flavor cup on top.  Currently the four flavor cups to choose from are Basil Pesto, Spicy Jalapeño & Roasted Peppers, Mango & Jalapeño and Artichoke & Roasted peppers.  These cups have real ingredients will full flavors and when combined with the quinoa they are ready to eat or in after about 20 seconds in the microwave if you prefer it warmed up.  Also, there's no need to worry about getting the contents of the flavor cup into the quinoa cup.  Each package comes with a buildable spoon so you can have it anywhere you like; just set up the cup & spoon and its ready to go.  I've tried the mango & jalapeño and the artichoke & roasted peppers and I must say that each has their own specialness to it.  The heat and sweet of the mango & jalapeño dance nicely together while the tart kick of the artichoke is just plain lovely.  Its also very comforting to know that you're getting the goodness of a superfood like quinoa with such an easy rich meal free from all the crap that makes things last on the shelf longer than they ought to.
