Quinoa Crab Corn Chowder

This Quinoa Crab Corn Chowder is a super easy, weeknight meal full of nourishing ingredients your family will love! With a combination of canned goods bought at my local Safeway and fresh fruits and veggies, this meal comes together in under 30 minutes. 

How often do you use canned goods? Are they a staple in your pantry? Or do you prefer using all fresh? I tend to use both --- as cans can help you save prep time and get a healthy meal on the table more often.

You know me... I'm all about nourishing superfoods... at every meal. Even busy weeknight dinners.

Did you know I'm writing my second cookbook about this very topic?!? I think it's something we all need in the hustle and bustle of real life --- go-to, quick, easy, nourishing recipes at our fingertips so that we have options other than pizza, lasagna, and takeout! Am I right?!?! Like this soup. Sooooo good! And so quick to put together.

All that's left is to take a bite! Or twenty.
