Quinoa Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

Recipe #47 is a pretty free-form one that can be easily thrown together.  Its SUPER healthy for you, low in calories and fat, bursting with good-for-your-body ingredients, and it tastes AWESOME.  This is one of my go-to dishes when trying to eat light and healthy.  I recommend when making the quinoa, cook 2x what you need.  You can store the extra in a container in the fridge and throw together one of these bowls way quicker within the next few days, whenever you wish.  This dish is gluten-free, lactose-free and sugar-free.  And its pretty dang close to being raw as well, aside from the cooking of the quinoa.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised by how tasty it is.  Dont say I didn’t want you.  It sounds simple but man oh man.  I make this a few times a week and am always thrilled when I sit down to eat it.

Coconut Curry Shrimp Quinoa Bowl

Happy New Years Eve, all!  Edible item #34 is another “beauty bowl” of sorts.  I decided to stick with the both “easy” and “healthy” trend for the moment.  This one is so simple to assemble that actually, its slightly embarrassing.  The taste payoff is a big one, just so yummy when compared with how quick it is to make and then be digging in mere minutes later.

The coconut curry sauce goes AWESOME smothered atop the shrimp, mixed with the subtly nutty taste of the quinoa, the crunch of the bell peppers and onions adding a great texture variety, the mango lending a surprisingly light sweetness, brightening the entire dish.  All of the flavors and textures come together really nicely, balancing one another out and playing well with each other.
