She finds juicing to be a great habit to develop in order to get a tasty mixture of fresh ingredients.
As a stylist, once you learn about nutrition you can do a lot of good! “We are in a powerful position,” Schwanda-Matthews says. “We speak with so many people every day and can educate and influence all the people we serve. We already make our clients feel better about the way they look; we also can make them feel better about their health. This is a great opportunity for all hairdressers.”
Quinoa Snack from Andrea Schwanda-Matthews
1/4 c quinoa
1/2 c almond milk
1/4 tbsp of cinnamon
1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 pkg. frozen blueberries
STEP 1: Boil the first four ingredients together the same way in which you would cook quinoa in water. Follow the directions on the box; it should take about 15 minutes.
STEP 2: Line a bowl with frozen blueberries, and pour the mixture over them. “The warm mixture over the crunchy, cold berries is a great taste!” Schwanda-Matthews says. Alternatively, you can add dried fruit, nuts or oats to the quinoa.
