Quinoa Bowls for the win

IMG_20170328_122251_822

As we emerge into Spring I crave lighter foods.  This quinoa bowl is light while still being hearty and its variety of toppings will fuel you through even the busiest of work days. What I really like about quinoa bowls is they are ridiculously easy to make and are excellent for those who food prep.

To start make a giant batch of quinoa, portion it out into your desired serving size, and then top with your preferred add ins.  I chose black beans, roasted sweet potato wedges, beets, tomatoes, roasted chickpeas , black olives and shredded zucchini.  On this one I was feeling a little fancy so I made my best attempt at an avocado rose.

If you’re not a fan of eating the same meal everyday, mix up the toppings and get creative.  This bowl can easily become anything you want it to. Feeling Asian inspired? Add some soy, ginger and scallions.  What about Mexican? Add some green chilies, salsa, and spiced chicken.  Be bold with your choices and take a trip around the cultural eating world.

What are your favorite combinations?

As always eat healthy stay fit,
