It’s Recipe Redux time! This month’s challenge is Plant Protein Power Bowls. I love a good power bowl, especially one I can eat any time of the day. I make a variation of this one a couple times a week, some days for breakfast and some days for lunch/dinner. The quinoa adds a hefty dose of plant-based protein but if I need to make it a little heartier I’ll usually add some lean protein like a hard-boiled egg (pictured), scrambled egg whites or grilled chicken either mixed in or on the side. Sometimes I’ll even add a scoop of pico de gallo or a drizzle of hot sauce for a little heat…..yum!
