I’ve found that the number one reason I eat healthy is if I plan ahead. If I’m stuck in a pinch and end up being starving I end up grabbing something easy and convenient, and maybe not as healthy as it could be.

When I meal prep on the weekends and have lunch and snacks ready to go for the week, I end up making healthier choices and feel so much better during the week.

I have to be a honest, I’m not a huge veggie lover. It takes a lot of seasoning and excitement for me to want to eat vegetables. Which is why this veggie quinoa power bowl is such a perfect meal. It has so many veggies and it’s hearty and tastes delicious too!

The veggies included in this veggie quinoa power bowl:

  • sweet potatoes
  • cauliflower
  • broccoli
  • onion
  • peppers

There’s also roasted chickpeas, cilantro and hummus to add to the top!

This recipe makes enough to fill at least 5 plastic containers you can easily take with you to work. I’ve been eating it for two days and its’ so good! Definitely will not get sick of it by day 5.

If you want to add some protein to this recipe you can easily add rotisserie chicken! Or another option is to cook your quinoa with bone broth. So many healthy benefits to doing that! I’m doing it next week:)

  1. No no no says:

    This isn’t very well written or instructed. Except for the Ingredients list, the recipe itself says nothing about the bell peppers and the instructions direct you to mix ALL the veggies together, yet the photo of the dish has the broccoli and cauliflower separate from the rest.

  2. Elisa Keane says:

    where can I find nutritional information?

    1. Mark Johnson says:

      5 stars
      To the person who asked about nutritional information: assuming 4 servings and each person eats 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa then each serving is 483 calories (15g fat, 16.5g protein, 73g carbs, 19g fiber). That assumes you eat everything except only half of the quinoa called for in the recipe. The recipe makes enough quinoa for each person to eat a full cup of it which adds 132 calories per person and brings the total calories to 615 per serving.

      We use vegetable broth. Tzatziki is an excellent addition.

    There’s so many different colours and flavours in this it would make a brilliant lunch!
