Day 2 of the “quit added sugar challenge”

When preparing meals make sure to mix healthy carbs such as fruits vegetables with healthy fats and protein such as olive oil, grass-fed pasture-raised chicken, beef, turkey so that cravings for sweets will stay to a limit and you won’t feel hungry.

Quinoa bowls are a great way of doing so, the best part about it you can play around with it and add how you please.

To make shopping a bit simpler and lighter on the wallet here is a link to my blog where I wrote about the dirty dozen and the clean fifteen, use this guide to save yourself some money.

Today I made mine with:

A Roasted a whole chicken if you have the time to roast one, If you don’t just fry up some chicken breast in the pan with some coconut oil. I like to use the brand “Springer” for good quality but not organic chicken.

Season chicken with sea salt, pepper and thyme roast in the oven at 375 F until done. Let cool, then carve meat off the chicken and cut into bite-size pieces.

Prepare quinoa according to instructions, always rinse thoroughly even if the package says it is pre-rinsed already. Quinoa can leave a bitter taste if not rinsed well enough.

Today I added:

  • Roasted chicken
  • 1 large stalk of leeks
  • 6 stalks of celery
  • 1 purple onion

Combine with a tablespoon of olive oil,

Sautee in frying pan for about 6-10 min.

Add water to cover half-way,

Add 1 teaspoon of chicken stock

Simmer for about 25 min, or until tender, turn off the heat add salt a pinch of cayenne and a pinch cardamom and a tablespoon of whole fat pasture-raised sour cream.

  • Steamed broccoli with fresh garlic.

Layer bowl with quinoa add toppings and enjoy!
