I’ve been on a healthy food kick after coming off of the worst third pregnancy and am finally able to eat and be excited about food again. You can follow me on Instagram and check out my weekly meal posts (here is part 1) for more inspiration and ideas, but I am especially excited about this Superfood Quinoa Bowl.
What is a superfood? While there are no such foods, nutritionally speaking, it’s a marketing term coined to label nutrient-rich, healthy foods, and this quinoa bowl is packed with them.
Prepare yourself to see lots of quinoa bowl recipes from me in the future! They’re extremely easy to make ahead of time or on-the-fly, it’s a great way to get your veggies in, and they’re packed with nutrients and flavor. Hello, new favorite lunch.
Superfood Quinoa Bowl
- 1/4-1/2 C cooked quinoa
- 1/2 avocado
- Handful of broccoli
- 1 C spinach
- Handful of almonds
- 1 T Chia seeds
- Cajun seasoning
- Salt & pepper
- 3 T Olive oil
- 2 T Apple cider vinegar
- 1 T raw honey
- Cook quinoa according to instructions on the box. (I cook enough for the week and keep it in the fridge so it’s ready to go.)
- Cook bite-size pieces of fresh broccoli just a few minutes so it’s fork tender.
- Heat up almonds and Chia seeds on the stove to lightly toast and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning.
- Chop or rip up spinach.
- Assemble ingredients, mix dressing, pour over bowl, and enjoy!
