This recipe appeared in the September 2017 issue of "Radnor Life & Style" Magazine

I make this southwest bowl quite often since I usually prepare several in bulk on a Sunday to use for my lunches for the week. This recipe is super easy, healthy, and quite delicious! I often tell my clients about this bowl since it’s a simple way to get a balanced meal without lots of unhealthy additives- all the flavor comes from foods that are naturally nutritious. Plus, it’s very high in fiber and protein, so will help to keep you full for several hours. Eating this sure beats going to a fast food chain for your burrito bowl-  significantly cheaper and healthier!

1/3 c plain Greek yogurt, or low-fat cottage cheese
¼ c fresh salsa
1/3 medium avocado or 3-4 tbsp guacamole
Cilantro, parsley, chili powder (all optional), to taste
Juice of 1 lime or lemon

½ c quinoa, cooked
1/3 c black beans, cooked
2-3 cups mixed salad greens
½ c cherry tomatoes, cut in half
¼ c onion, diced
½ c bell peppers, chopped

1.       I recommend cooking quinoa and other grains in bulk, so this recipe is assuming that you have already cooked a big batch ahead of time.
2.       Mix together “dressing” ingredients in large bowl.
3.       Add in quinoa, black beans, salad greens, onion, and peppers, and mix all together until dressing is well distributed.
4.       Enjoy!

1.       To make several bowls, simply multiply each ingredient by the servings you need to make and place in individual Tupperware containers.
2.       Feel free to add more vegetables of your choosing, the more the merrier!

My recommendations on Amazon

I often find myself "Google-ing" products that I am recommending to my clients in order to provide a visual as to what they should be looking for when they grocery shop. Many of these products end up being available on Amazon. So, I have created an "Amazon List" that shows many of the products I approve of in one spot.
