Easy Summer Bean Salad

Getting plant based protein is a definite win in my book, so we’ve been trying to get creative with different ways to incorporate beans into our diet.

You’ve got a delicious, low fat, protein packed summer bean salad. My kind of recipe!!! It’s a great side for any menu and an easy go to when you are asked to bring a salad to a BBQ or summer gathering.

Delicious Chicken and Veggie Bowl

My family is bowl crazy right now!  It's one of their favorite dinners, and so easy to make.  In full disclosure, this chicken is so yummy it is almost dangerous, I can not stop eating it!  If you make a double batch of the chicken, you can use it on salads and in wraps during the week.  I love the beautiful colors in this dish and it's full of healthy antioxidants, phytonutrients, lean protein and healthy fat!

This Protein Bowl only has 6 Ingredients and is very low calorie.  It packs all the nutritional punch that quinoa offers, and has lots of protein for the low calories!  I like everything spicy, so I use the full cup (or more), but I would suggest starting with 1/2 cup the first time you make it, and adding more as you taste it.
