High-Protein Paleo Power Bowl

January 30, 2019

When you’re trying to eat healthy, convenience is key! I keep the ingredients for these High-Protein Paleo Power Bowls on hand in my fridge, then mix and match according to my mood. Here’s my insider tips for the best power bowls:

1. I love my power bowls topped with a spoonful of almond ricotta for extra flavor and protein. (Kite Hill is my favorite brand.)

2. Feel free to add a handful of roasted veggies like sweet potatoes, zucchini, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts to your bowl, too.

3. Want your Paleo power bowls even faster? Frozen quinoa is in just about every supermarket now, so you don’t have to spend time boiling and draining.

While this is a Paleo-friendly meal, you don’t need to follow a special diet to enjoy all the great clean, lean protein, healthy fats, and fiber this recipe has to offer.
