Healthy Recipes

Those who attended our Mom’s Healthy Happy Hour were treated to some delicious smoothies and snacks thanks to Sandra Telesmanic of HeathWell Corporate Solutions. They are kind enough to share these recipes with us so we can make them at home!


Cranberry Quinoa

Have you tried quinoa? This protein-rich super food is a nutritional powerhouse. Quinoa contains more vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants than any other grain.  We tried the HW Cranberry Cilantro Quinoa Salad (pictured above) and it was fantastic!  For another take on quinoa, the HW Roasted Quinoa Salad recipe combines quinoa with roasted vegetables.


Smothie Making

Sandra showed us how you can whip up a nutrition-packed smoothie in no time at all, and even take it with you for a healthy way to start the day. Here is the one we sampled during the event:

The Delicious Purplicious by HealthWell

This smoothie is packed with antioxidants and appeals to even the most skeptical taste testers (our kids!). It’s Quick and Packed with Nutrition.


  • A handful of washed Baby Spinach
  • 2 Ripe Bananas
  • 1 Cored Gala Apple, skin on
  • 1/2 c Blueberries
  • 6-8 Strawberries (large)
  • 1/2 c Kefir (optional, may substitute with Greek yogurt or coconut water)
  • 6 Ice Cubes (optional, may use frozen fruit in place of ice)


Place ingredients in a high-speed blender in the order above. Add several ice cubes if you want the smoothie very cold.  Use the smoothie speed or blend at high for approximately 40 seconds. Serves 2 or if you want to enjoy it all, the Delicious Purplicious will keep you going with plenty of good, complex carbs.
