Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Recipe 1


Happy 2017! I know it’s now January 4th, but since it’s my first time posting this year, I wanted the record to show that I said it. Now, on to the really important things — food. Obvi.

This quinoa bowl is YUM. Let me back up – do you have plans to crush your health and fitness goals this year? If so, good for you! Quinoa is one of those things that sounds scary, looks kinda scary, and feels like a lot of work to make – but I promise, if you try it out, you’ll love love love it.

Buffalo Chicken Quinoa

We buy the giant bag of quinoa from Costco, and it’s so much cheaper than most other places, plus it lasts forever. Every Sunday or Monday when I’m meal prepping, I make enough for the week and it stores perfectly in a tupperware container in the fridge!

This meal only took around 10 minutes to put together because I had already prepped the quinoa and chicken, which leads me to my next point; something big and exciting is coming! The Ultimate Guide to Meal Prep. No explanation needed. Just kidding, I’ll explain. I’m putting this guide together for all of you! I’m a perfectionist (not in a bragging, good quality kind of way) so it’s taken me much longer to organize and create this guide than I was hoping for – but we’re so close. I’ll share tons of details about how to get your copy soon.

Until then, enjoy this recipe! I apologize for the pictures (or lack there of) –  I wasn’t planning to share this recipe yet. I thought it would require some improvements, but after tasting it, I couldn’t wait to put it out there for the world to eat!
