I am obsessed with making loaded bowls full of balance + luvv (+ lots of toppings ofc) ✨ this bowl has the perfect blend of complex carbs, protein, and healthy fats. so important to eat a balanced meal—helps to increase satiety and can slow down absorption + blood glucose release…just some food for thought and something I learned in my nutrition class ◡̈
This grain bowl is the absolute perfect meal. One that will keep your belly and mind happy
— chicken shawarma // bought from trader joes
— cherry tomatoes
— kalamata olives
— hummus // obsessed with TJ’s mediterranean hummus
— trader joes hot pepper sauce (fermented crushed calabrian chili peppers)
— olive oil
— lemon slices
— salt + pepper
◡̈ what to do:
1. bake your chicken shawarma in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
2. while the chicken is baking, cook your quinoa on the stovetop. add in some olive oil, and whatever seasonings you would like.
3. prep the rest of your toppings by slicing up some cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.
4. slice your chicken after it is fully cooked. assemble your bowl by starting with the quinoa and arugula base, add on your chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, and olives. finally, add on a scoop of hummus, mix in the hot pepper sauce, drizzle with olive oil + enjoy!
Run, don’t walk to trader joe’s to get yourself some chicken shawarma and make this bowl with me. I promise you won’t regret it 🤤
