Post Fueling Power Bowl- Fiesta



Once your training is done, it's time to get in protein and carbs. This power bowl would make a great lunch or dinner. Check out how to create a power bowl. I love the concept of power bowls. They're easy to cook, you can change up the flavors, and tastes delicious!


Ingredients:

1/2 cup quinoa or brown rice

4 oz chicken breast cooked

1/2 cup black beans

1/4 cup corn

1/3 cup bell pepper diced

1/4 fresh tomato diced

1-2 cup salad greens

Topping Ideas: salsa, fresh avocado, cheese, cilantro, jalapenos


Directions:

  1. Cook chicken breast and slice. Set aside.

  2. Wash all fresh vegetables and dice for power bowl.

  3. Combine corn, black beans, bell peppers, and tomatoes.

  4. Cook rice or quinoa according to directions.

  5. To build the power bowl: place salad greens first followed by rice or quinoa, corn/veggie mixture, and top with your favorite toppings! I love salsa and jalapenos.


Quick tip: Not big on cooking chicken- opt in for a rotisserie chicken, canned chicken, or pre-cooked frozen chicken. Rice can also be found in microwaveable cups same as quinoa, and mixed grains!
