Quinoa Tortillas!!!

DSC_3171

WOW… I have been searching for any kind of tortilla that is wheat, rice, sugar, and yeast-free… Well I found it!

…err, Okay I made it! (after finding a recipe here… I changed it up a little bit. My changes are in the recipe below)

Into the bowl went Quinoa Flour, Psyllium Husk Powder, Salt, Grapeseed Oil, and Warm water…

Quinoa Floured Surface and rolling pin

3 of the tortillas (I refrigerated the last three balls as I am sure they are better fresh)

Topped with ground chicken, blackbeans, zucchini, spinach, onions, tomatoes, and a bit of spices. Oh, and a dollop of pureed avocado with some lime mixed in.

It was AMAZING! It was nice to finally have mexican night with the family!

From PG to Kitimat :)

Yesterday was day 2 of driving… Shorter drive than the first day,but LONG nonetheless!

Breakfast was a 1/2 hot chocolate 1/2 coffee and a Tim Horton’s plain oatmeal to go, that I fixed up a little :)

So much better now!

The addition of Chia Seeds, Blueberries, and Marantha Chocolate Almond butter made it delicious!

Lunch was a slice of left over Tropical Chicken Pizza from our Boston Pizza Hotel Delivery last night… no worries as it was stored in a cooler :)

Thing 2 w/ World's Largest Fly Fishing Rod

 

We ate it at a little Park in Houston, BC where we saw the world’s largest Fly Fishing Rod!

1/2 PB Lara Bar for a snack

Started it... but realized it wasn't what I wanted...

Thing 1 and Me!

Finally we arrived in Kitimat, after stopping and purchasing a new camera for me in Terrace.  I am the proud owner of a Nikon D7000 now! I bought an 18-200 VR lens with it, so I could have a “do it all” lens for my everyday :)  I can’t wait to check out all it can do!  (Thankfully I have a photographer for a friend who reads this…and promises to help me figure stuff out on it.) I probably should have bought it in AB as I had to pay HST… but since I got out-voted in waiting till stores open in Edmonton on Friday, and I wanted the larger zoom for this trip… the monetary difference is worth it.

Supper was a Mexican Night with my Mom, Sister, Her BF, Hubby and my kiddos…

I made mine into a salad so I could get the most toppings, and lettuce… YUM! This maybe made up for the Beer Margarita I had 😉

What’s the craziest “World’s Largest” thing you have seen on your travels?
