21 Day Fix Honey-Lime Quinoa Bowls

Food prep. It will save your sanity. 

Seriously.

And this Honey-Lime Quinoa Bowl will blow your mind. 


It's been almost a month since I switched to a primarily vegetarian diet - and quinoa has been a staple. This nutrient packed superfood, fills you up and provides that all-so-important protein! 

If you've been following my Facebook Page - you know I've been doing the The Master's Hammer and Chisel workout program since the beginning of the year - its all about building muscle and one of my biggest concerns with switching to mostly vegetarian was making sure my diet contained appropriate protein for all that muscle building.


Top it off with my soy sensitivity and quinoa has been my BFF for the past month - I add it to soups + salads, use as a side dish, and main dish. Bottom line - quinoa is my jam!
