Vegetable Beef Quinoa Stir-fry

Quinoa! I LOVE this stuff! It is a great alternative to rice and it is very filling. So, to talk a little about Quinoa, most people think it’s a grain but if you do your research, its actually a seed. It contains all nine amino acids, wow! In my opinion, you should definitely always have Quinoa in your pantry.

So, here is one of my many recipes containing Quinoa.


1 cup of Quinoa
1 pack of organic beef (cut into strips)
1 pack of asparagus
1 bunch of broccoli
1 pack of mushrooms
1/2 of an onion

Sesame Oil
Soy sauce
Ginger powder

In a large wok or if you don’t have a wok, you can use a large frying pan, place your cut up beef, mushrooms, and onion inside and cook until beef is done and mushrooms are tender. Medium heat.

Next, pour a little soy sauce into your pot and let it simmer. Add the ginger powder, salt and pepper.

Cut up your asparagus into 2 inch pieces and add to wok. Cut up your broccoli and add to wok.

In a separate pot, cook your quinoa according to the specific direction on your package. I personally use Bob’s Red Mill Quinoa.

While you are waiting on your quinoa to cook, add a little sesame oil to your wok and let the broccoli and asparagus steam, putting the lid on.

When your Quinoa is finished, add it to your wok. Put a little more sesame oil and soy sauce in and stir at a medium high heat. Once you stir-fry for a little while, add your siracha and more spices if needed.

1 year Anniversary


I just celebrated my 1st year anniversary. March 22 was the day I married the love of my life. He makes me the happiest woman alive and I would never look back. I’m sure every woman who truly loves their husband can say that no matter trials and tribulations, you stick with your man and he will stick with you. My man has helped me with every health issue, friendship issue, emotional issue, and frankly any issue that comes up, he always talks to me about it. A healthy relationship in my opinion consists of always talking to each other and communicating properly. Don’t assume, don’t over-analyze, and open your ear to what your spouse has to say.

To briefly share how we came to be a couple, I will say these few things. I saw him and my jaw dropped; I was drawn to him; he was drawn to me; we had mutual friends; we became best friends; we fell in love; we got married.

We have recently moved into a bigger house after we sold the house that I came into as a bride. 4 bedrooms, two stories and its on a nice piece of land. We live 5 minutes from the beach, enough said.

My husband makes sure to take care of me by working very hard; he owns his own business and is very successful at it. You all know about me; I am a housewife and I make sure to take care of my hardworking husband.

Marriages are holy. My husband and I make sure to treat it as such.

My name is Cheyenne Holland and I am married to the most wonderful man in the world.

P.S. I have been working on several recipes, so check back with me for some yummy stuff!

Thank you for taking this journey with a housewife.
