Chicken and Quinoa Bowl


It’s halfway through January and I’m trying my best to stay on track with healthy eating! Though to be honest with you, since it’s been raining for 8 days out of 10, all I want to do is eat soup!!! But soup only keeps me full for maybe an hour, so I have to be creative and think of something filling, lots of veggies, with flavorful protein.

Enter my chicken quinoa grain bowl - it’s a rainbow of veggies that lifts my mood everytime I make it! While it does have a few different components, each of the “layers” add to the overall bowl and I never get bored of it! Each bite bursts with flavor - the creaminess of the tzaziki sauce, the freshness of the greek salad, and the savory flavor of the chicken just melds into a bright and sunny bite. I feel energized and happy eating this colorful bowl! I hope you will too!!
