This delicious 10-minute Power Bowl is packed with protein as well as healthy fats and carbs. By simply having a few basic prepped ingredients on hand I am able to quickly put together a balanced meal.
Over the weekend, I will batch cook some meat to have on hand during the week like ground beef or turkey, a whole chicken, or chicken breasts. I also roast an assortment of veggies, and prep a grain like rice or quinoa. I store everything in the fridge until I am ready to use. Then, all I have to do is throw everything in a pan and heat through.
To create your bowl, heat skillet on med high and spray with cooking spray or lightly coat pan with oil or butter. Next, I add a grain of choice and broth, sauce, or cream. Then add rest of ingredients and spices of choice and heat through. Put ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!!
