I’m not one to make a New Year’s resolutions. Instead, I like to set small monthly goals for myself. This month I’ve been focusing on eating healthier during the week and adding more meatless dishes to my diet.

Blue Cheese & Avocado Quinoa Burger

You might have noticed that I’ve been featuring some of these recipes here and they usually consist of mushrooms and or quinoa. They’re by far my favorite substitutes for meat and empty carbs. For Valentine’s Day I even plan on making us a quinoa blue cheese burger topped with onions, avocados, and blue cheese. Scroll down for my spicy blue cheese & avocado quinoa burger recipe.

Another change I’ve made this year is eating a lot more proteins and finding different ways to keep myself fueled throughout my busy day rather than just drinking more coffee. Have you guys heard of Herbal Mist teas (click here for more info)? Herbal Mist is a line of 100% natural, real brewed tea that is enhanced with yerba mate and real fruit flavors like peach, mango, and raspberry (my favorite). They even have a green tea and honey, along with an unsweetened version that you can easily sweeten with some lemon juice.

I’ve never been a fan of tea, but I was hooked on Herbal Mist the first time I tried the green tea, and even more so after I had tasted the raspberry. The teas provide a unique combination of health and natural energy by harnessing the power of South American yerba mate. Yerba mate is natural, healthy, and does not have the caffeinated effects of coffee or energy drinks. The incredible taste speaks for itself! See blue cheese & avocado quinoa burger recipe below!

Herbal Mist is not only a delicious way to refuel, but because it’s “true brewed”, it can be microwaved or boiled for chilly nights. It also pairs well with mixed drinks.

    The burgers look amazing! I just rekindled my love of quinoa and I have a bag waiting in the cabinet for something just like this. Maybe I’ll trick my carnivore boyfriend into eating one! haha
