As I said in my post yesterday afternoon, once I read about Angela’s Protein Power Bowl yesterday morning, it was all I thought about ALL day!! Dinner finally rolled around and I was just so excited to make it. I used fennel instead of onion, quinoa flakes instead of waiting 30-40 minutes for real quinoa to cook, and I didn’t add garlic but I did add a few other goodies.
Angela’s version can be found here.
Meg’s Version of Protein Power Bowl:
– 1/3 cup quinoa flakes
– 1/4 cup Perky’s Crunch Flax (who said you had to have cereal with milk?)
– 1/3 cup chickpeas
– 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
– 1 tbsp ground flax
– 1/2 cup fennel
– 5 asparagus spears
– sprinkle of GF tamari
– 1 tsp curry powder
Cook the quinoa flakes in 2/3 cups of water for about 90 seconds (or as the instructions on the box read). Sauté the fennel and asparagus together. Pretty easy right? Then just throw it all in a bowl and add the toppings!
The quinoa flakes are hiding underneath the mess of all of the other deliciousness.
YUM! It was definitely what I was expecting..but better. I loved all of the crunchy textures and different tastes I added it. I was hesitant when I used tamari after I had put the curry in, but it was actually quite delicious. I will definitely make this again and it kept me feeling full for quite a long time.
I also had raw carrot fries with ketchup. I know, I know…sounds a little odd right? But trust me, don’t bash it until you try! Do you like sweet potato fries with ketchup? Then you will like these! Such a good combo!
Well, I must go make some brain food for my long day of studying…tomorrow is my first exam!!! I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty nervous for it…it just crept up way to quickly. Have a wonderful Sunday 🙂
