Quinoa meet America

These 4 recipes are all different in flavor but share one similar philosophy: using a better sugar when needed than table sugar. I use a combination of xylitol and erythritol, when sugar is needed, in these recipes. It maintains the flavor you would get if it had sugar in it, but lessens the toxins and calories you would normally be putting into your body.

Each of these recipes has refreshing ingredients including an assortment of berries, plain and fat-free yogurt, fresh veggies, quinoa, tomatoes, brown rice and delectable flaky ecologically sourced seafood. They range from side dish and snack to yummy drink and main course and go from sweet to savory. But no matter how different they might come across, they all have one thing in common; they are all sugar free.
