Zesty Sweet Potato Quinoa Stir Fry

We all know I want summer.

So I’m busting out the cilantro and strawberries. Well, the strawberries aren’t part of the recipe. They’re just a delicious, pretty, colorful perk.

I had a friend date Saturday and we ate this. DELISH. Oh, and we had a special Valentine’s treat that will be on the blog soon.

Stay tuned.
