You may not be able to tell from my last few recipe posts (fancy grilled cheese, sweet biscuits or French beignets, anyone?) but I’m actually on a bit of a health kick lately. It can maybe be attributed to the impending bikini season (if winter ever heads out of town), but even more than that, I’m just trying to be more conscious of the types of food I put into my body. More veggies and fruits, less processed foods, dairy and grains. But cheese, always cheese.
One of my favorite new dishes (if you could call it that) to pull together is a rainbow bowl. I know this is one of those, “Um, I don’t need a recipe for kale and a bowl of vegetables, thanks…” things, but I wanted to share it anyways because it’s so yummy!
Basically, it’s as easy as this: one cup cooked quinoa, one and a half cups kale (raw kale or roasted kale, your choice), then go crazy with the veggies–I topped mine with orange pepper, tomatoes, avocado, carrots and snap peas. Finish it off with a heaping scoop of hummus and call it lunch (or dinner, even!). I always feel super well-behaved, full and energized after eating a rainbow bowl. Plus, they’re so colorful and fresh looking–it makes it feel like spring, even if it’s not quite here yet!
