Quick and Nutritious Week Night Dinner

Quinoa bowl/brown rice bowl/anything in a bowl is my favorite dinner. Pick a grain, roast some damn veggies and top with a healthy fat and protein, wam bam thank you mam!

What you need:

Grain: quinoa, brown rice, barley, faro, you pick. I chose quinoa since this was a vegetarian bowl and quinoa is higher in protein.

Vegtable: pick 5-7 favorite veggies and roast, I chose:

Brussels sprouts, zucchini, red and green bell pepper, poblano pepper, red onion, green beans, mushrooms and corn. Roast them all together, tossing around a few times.

Fat: I cut half an avocado to place on top.

Protein: I chose 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt.

Assemble your bowl with grain, veggie, avocado, yogurt and enjoy!

*Rememebr, if you are prepping your foods before a busy week your grain and veggies should have already been precooked and ready for the assembly part which should take all of 5 minutes.
