Big Bowl of Goodness

The "Big Bowl of Goodness" is more of a guideline than a recipe, inspired by Oh She Glows and Deliciously Ella.  You can take your favorite ingredients and make it your own.  My recommendation is to have:
  • Protein: chicken, tofu, tempeh, beans
  • Carb: brown rice, quinoa, roasted sweet potatoes
  • Roasted veggies (I like peppers, asparagus, cauliflower, zucchini)
  • Raw veggies (shredded carrots, beets, chopped peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes)
  • Nuts or seeds
  • Marinated kale
  • Hummus or avocado
These are just suggestions, so feel free to make this any way your heart desires.  I love the big bowl of goodness, because I can prep a bunch of ingredients ahead of time, then throw things together willy nilly when I'm ready to eat! I can mix and match what I've prepped or add a salad dressing to switch the flavors around depending on my tastes.

These bowls are really filling and satisfying.  They are full of nutrients and you can feel good about what you are eating!

The bowl pictured contains the following:

Kale massaged with garlic vinaigrette
Quinoa (with coconut oil stirred in after cooking)
Shredded roasted chicken
Roasted sweet potatoes
Roasted cauliflower
Chopped red peppers
Shredded carrots
Sundried tomato hummus

Roast veggies for about 20-30 minutes at 400F.  Cook the quinoa according to the directions (usually 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water, boil, then cover and cook for 15 minutes).  Once the quinoa has cooked, fluff it with a fork and stir in a 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil and season with freshly cracked black pepper.
