Peanut Chicken Power Bowl

Peanut Chicken Power Bowl

Gosh this weekend went by in the blink of an eye, didn’t it? I traveled to Cincinnati for one of my best friend's bachelorette party. We had SUCH an incredible time!

PS how fun to have a bach party on Halloween weekend?!?

After not having much discipline food wise & the extent of my workouts was a pole dancing class (which actually left my upper body pretty sore) I was in desperate need to flip the health switch back to "ON"

So lunch this week is a peanut chicken power bowl filled with healthy carbs, lean protein, and veggies!

Okay... Let's talk prep! After super busy traveling weekends the last thing I want to do is spend 3 hours in the kitchen prepping!

So what's my hint? Buy some of your ingredients ALREADY prepped!

I swung by the store and picked up already cut red cabbage + carrots. Whole Foods has an amazing Thai peanut sauce, so I bought a small container of that since my past experiences of making Thai sauce was, well.....pretty darn bad. I also picked up some already grilled chicken from Whole Foods as well. Basically the only thing I had to cook was my brown rice. I made enough for the entire week so all I'll have todo in the mornings is put everything in a Tupperware container and I'm out the door. Simple as that!

I don't always buy already prepped items, but when I'm rushed for time or super exhausted small cheats like this will save me hours in the kitchen and IT'S STILL HEALTHY!


INGREDIENTS:

  • One 6oz grilled chicken breast
  • 1/2 seedless cucumber
  • 1/4 cup carrots
  • 1/4 cup red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup whole grain brown rice
  • 3 tbsp Whole Foods Peanut Sauce
    • If you want to make your own:
      • 1/2 cup peanut butter
      • 1 can lite coconut milk (canned)
      • 2 tbsp soy sauce
      • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
        add ingredients together on stove top and simmer for 5-8 min

METHOD:

  • Combine all ingredients above into a bowl
  • I ate this bowl chilled because warming up cucumber doesn't seem appetizing to me. If you want this bowl warm you can heat up the rice + chicken before adding the veggies!
