Quinoa Pita Tortilla

Hey friends ๐Ÿ˜€ Howโ€™s your day been??

Quick update from this morning: The Twins gift basket went on promo TODAY! OpenSky followers, check your email if you want the delicious treats ๐Ÿ™‚ I ordered mine already- its not everyday you can get a healthy dessert gift box for a baller price. *Edited to say: We sold out SUPER fast! If you didnโ€™t get the promo email, please check your spam folder. If itโ€™s not there, shoot me an email <3

No class again this morning- Tuesdays have been a little slow. Still waiting for word to pick up! To be productive, I choreographed, ordered more fliers and free class passes and then made a minor detour at Whole Paycheck. ๐Ÿ˜‰

After all of that, I went antique-ing with my bro:

bull

I love looooove looking at vintage stuff- so fun ๐Ÿ™‚

We also made a stop here to get the goodies for the giveaway winners (Larabars, almond butter, dried fruit, seaweed snacks):

MY OTHER RECIPES


tjs

and then I came home for an AMAZING lunch.

lunch

a quinoa pita with hummus, mustard, arugula and tomatoes + veg

Iโ€™ve been enjoying socca lately, but to be honest, itโ€™s a little beany for me. I wanted to make something a little lighter that would still satisfy my carb toothโ€”quinoa flour to the rescue!

I mixed equal parts quinoa flour and water

quinoa

seasoned with a little sea salt

and cooked in organic butter on medium heat for 3 minutes per side.

pita

It came out like a super dense pita or thick tortilla- RIDICULOUS.

Dessert was a โ€œbakedโ€ apple (zapped in the microwave for 2 minutes with cinnamon and butter)

apple

Itโ€™s always nice to have a little something sweet after a delicious meal.

Bella and I went for a lwalk, carrot beet bean burgers are in the oven for dinner, and Iโ€™m about to get ready to shake my booty at Zumba ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a lovely night and Iโ€™ll see ya in the morning!

<3

    Love your little tomato bowl!

    Had this for dinner tonight. It was so fabulous! I threw a little goat cheese in with the ricotta and drizzled the end result with some balsamic. SO tasty!

      i LOVE sweet potato and goat cheese- what a great idea to add kale, though!

  2. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on February 8, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    Very cool quinoa creation! I would have never thought it would turn out like that. Have a great time at Zumba tonight! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ashley on February 8, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    mmmm – those burgers sound delish! I love doing the whole “baked” apple thing, too! Sometimes I’ll de-core it and put the butter & cinnamon in the middle. YUM!

    • Fitnessista on February 8, 2011 at 7:51 pm

      OH YUM

  4. Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles on February 8, 2011 at 7:54 pm

  7. Julie Suh on February 8, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:04 am

    • Fitnessista on February 16, 2011 at 1:03 am

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:04 am

      at new life- it’s a cute little health food store

  10. Kristin on February 8, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    I follow on open sky and I didn’t get an e-mail either ๐Ÿ™ I’m gonna have to try this quinoa pita thing, looks amazing!

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:04 am

      have you checked your spam folder?

  11. Carrie on February 8, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    I just followed you on Open Sky. Is it too late to get the Valentine’s email?

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:04 am

      for this promo, yes, but we run a promo each week <3

  12. Shannon on February 8, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    Does Bob’s Red Mill Make Quinoa Flour or did you find it at Whole Foods? I really love that idea of making it into a pita.

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:03 am

      ancient harvest makes it

  13. Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete on February 8, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    I love the little tomato bowl!!! How freakin cute is that!

    I will have to try the quinoa pita — what an interesting idea!

  14. Gelsey on February 8, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    ahh I just checked my e-mail and had a reminder from you, and when I tried to order a box, it said none are available!!! Is that true??? this would be so perfect!

    • Carolyn on February 8, 2011 at 9:28 pm

      I made a bad call by waiting until I got home to order. Clearly a popular pick-none left.

      • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:02 am

        they sold out super fast!

  15. Jamie on February 8, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    I love baked apples! Yours looks so tasty!!

  16. Lindsay on February 8, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:02 am

  17. Amanda on February 8, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    SO excited about the treats! But if I already follow you on opensky, do I have to do anything or will an email just arrive tomorrow?

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:02 am

      it should have arrived already- did you check your spam folder?

  18. Amanda (Eating Up) on February 8, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    I’m so excited you introduced us to this company!

  19. Krista @ Journey to a Healthy Berg on February 8, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    I seriously had no idea that were so many different kinds of flour. Quinoa flour? Seriously?

  20. Christin@purplebirdblog on February 8, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    Mmmmm, quinoa pita thingy sounds redonk!

  21. Mishell on February 8, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    I have gotten prior promos, but did not get this one . . . Help!? And thanks for all you do!

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:02 am

      did you check your spam folder?

  22. Jen on February 8, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    I already follow you and I didn’t get an email. I even checked my spam folder. It looks like people are saying they may be all gone anyway. Do you have any info on this?

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:01 am

      we are sold out, but that’s super strange you didnt get it- i sent my contact an email and will let you know what i find out

  23. Sana on February 8, 2011 at 10:33 pm

  24. chelsey @ clean eating chelsey on February 8, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    The quinoa pita sounds delicious!! I love flatbreads!

  25. alicia on February 8, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    What fruit did you get??? I cannot seem to find any dried fruit that has no added sugar?? Even and TJs, I don’t have a Whole Foods. But, I die over their dried mangos!!!!
    : )….. drool

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:01 am

      just mango- unsweetened dried mango. it’s AMAZING

      • alicia on February 9, 2011 at 12:04 am

        Thanks!!! I’ll know what to look for next week! You’ve really sparked a nutritional diva in me! I started getting local produce boxes again!!! so beautiful. I attempted to make some kale chips today…eh, not so good? lol. It’s a great way to try and experience with new fruits and vegs. I received some red chard, which I’ve never eaten, never tried kale either, so I’m excited to use it all!!! Thanks!

  26. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on February 8, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    Have fun at zumba!

    Your lunch looks perfect! yum!

    And this
    “I mixed equal parts quinoa and water”–ok just to clarify…is that whole quinoa, just regular out of the box/package quinoa? Not like ground up or quinoa flour, just regular quinoa + water?

    If so, I need to try this…it doesnt get easier than that but I am wondering from the looks of your picture if it’s been ground first, then water?

    I can only hang with so many beans, bean flours, etc…so quinoa would be great for me.

    Enjoy your night, Gina! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:01 am

      oops- i forgot to say quinoa flour!

  27. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on February 8, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    The quinoa looks amazing, but I’m wondering how you got it into that cake-like form. Can you clarify for me?

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:00 am

      sorry, quinoa flour ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Runeatrepeat on February 8, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    HEAB recently made pan bread and I wonder if this is similar?

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 12:00 am

      maybe?? i read almost all of her posts- must have missed that one

  29. Namaste Gurl on February 8, 2011 at 11:34 pm

    You’re killing me- quinoa flour? I just finally got around to buying carob, spelt flour and coconut flour! Now just one more exotic flour to check off on my list ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. ashley@quasichick on February 8, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    I know I whine about this all the time, but I really with their were a TJ’s near me ๐Ÿ™

  31. mi-an dela cruz on February 9, 2011 at 1:01 am

    omg..yes i too feel the same way about socca…love it but i need to dip it in plain yogurt or something to make it lighter… now i have to try this quinoa pita thingie. gracias! oh i looked for black bean pasta at wf’s today and didn’t have it! i got spelt pasta instead…i’m sure it will be just as good!

  32. blackhuff on February 9, 2011 at 1:19 am

    I too love baked apple sprinkled with cinnamon. Great snack too.

  33. Katelyn on February 9, 2011 at 6:43 am

    I LOVE vintage stuff..especially antiques! Is it weird that I love the smell of old stuff?

    Slash why did I not think of using quinoa flour instead of chickpea? Giiirl yous a genius! I am trying this for din din:)

  34. Errign on February 9, 2011 at 7:09 am

    Yummy eats as usual! That pita/tortilla amazingness looks baller!

  35. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on February 9, 2011 at 7:48 am

    I can’t believe making your own tortilla is so easy! I’ve always thought it was way more complicated than that.

  36. Kristin (Cook, Bake, Nibble) on February 9, 2011 at 8:51 am

    I love vintage stuff! Your lulu sweatshirt is super cute, too ๐Ÿ™‚

    I LOVE the idea of a quinoa pita! I need to try this!

    xo

  37. Julie on February 9, 2011 at 9:40 am

    Hey Gina!! I follow you on OpenSky but never seem to get any of the emails. Do you have any advice for me? Dying to get these deals!! :o)

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 9:42 am

  38. Ashley on February 9, 2011 at 10:15 am

    Aw I love that bowl! I love shopping at antique stores I get the best jewelry there.

  39. Beth on February 9, 2011 at 10:46 am

    Did you open your own Dance Trance Studio? How did I miss that?

    • Fitnessista on February 9, 2011 at 10:58 am

      haven’t blogged about it yet ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Mandy on February 9, 2011 at 11:05 am

    Gina-I can’t find your email on your site but I don’t think I’ve ever received an email from Opensky and I checked my spam folder. It says I’m following you but I’m not receiving anything-can you check for me?

  41. Ashley on February 9, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    I have the same dry brush! That is hysterical that you broke it! Quinoa pita??? Are you kidding me….yum!!!

  42. steph51 on February 9, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    I tried socca yesterday and it was amazing! I had never even heard of it before. I had it with a bunch of roasted veggies and ketchup :-).
    And now I see you’re already over it lol!
    I saw the quinoa flour in the store too, but it was like $10, so I figured I start with socca first.

  43. sophie on September 15, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Hello! How much quinoa flour and water would you use for a one person serving?

    • Fitnessista on September 15, 2011 at 11:01 pm

      i usually do 1/3 cup and 1/3 cup ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Lauren on May 5, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    Hi Gina,

    I was perusing your blog when I came across this post….do you live in Tucson?! This is the TJs we shop at! My husband is a firefighter here, and I just recently started a blog. We are out in Rita Ranch. Maybe you’ve since transferred? Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and that I’m really impressed with your blog. If you get a chance to look at mine, I’d appreciate any feedback or advice you can offer, since you’re obviously successful at this (no smoke).

    Take care!
    Lauren Goslin

    • Fitnessista on May 6, 2012 at 2:28 pm

      hi lauren! yes, we’re in tucson! ๐Ÿ™‚
      xoxo
