FD876C0F-9494-494C-AE61-75A3222F249BFor lunch I decided to go with something healthy and easy. Below is the recipe for my southwestern quinoa bowl!

For the bowl:

•1 sweet potato steamed or baked

•1 tbsp cumin

•1 tbsp chili powder

•Salt and pepper to taste

•1/4 cup of black beans

•1/4 cup of corn

•1 cup cooked quinoa


•Half an avocado

•1/4 cup of greek yogurt

•1/4 cup of water

•1 cup of cilantro leaves

•1 clove of garlic

•1/2 tsp salt

•Juice from 1 lime


Before baking or steaming your sweet potatoes make sure to cube them and sprinkle them with the cumin and chili powder.

While sweet potatoes cook. Pulse all dressing items in a food processor until smooth.

Layer bowl starting with quinoa on bottom. Then top with corn, sweet potato and beans. Drizzle with dressing.

Add salmon or chicken for more protein!
