What I've Learned So Far
I try to pack my lunch every day, and this quinoa power bowl is a great option. It's easy to assemble in the morning and tastes great at lunchtime. I don't even need to refrigerate it - I just assemble the bowl at home and then eat it at noon. It's full of power foods, protein and vitamin-rich veggies. Seeds and nuts give it a great crunch. I usually only eat about half at lunch, and then finish it off during my 3:00 slump. It's healthy, filling, and easy to make. What could be better!
I generally prepare all the ingredients for the bowl on Sunday, and then quickly assemble each day's lunch while I'm cooking breakfast in the morning. Even though the cafeteria at works sells something similar, their version has fried foods and cheese, and this version is much healthier (and vegan to boot).
Let's Make Your Quinoa Power Bowl
• If you prefer to buy sweet potato and cube it yourself, you'll need 2-3 large sweet potatoes.• Let the tomato and cucumber sit overnight to give a good flavor from the oil and vinegar. For extra flavor you can sprinkle in some celery salt.
