Recipe: High-Protein Paleo Power Bowl

by JJ Virgin on April 4, 2017

When you’re trying to eat healthy, convenience is key! I keep the ingredients for these High-Protein Paleo Power Bowls on hand in my fridge, then mix and match according to my mood. Here's my insider tips for the best power bowls:

1. I love my power bowls topped with a spoonful of Kite Hill almond ricotta for extra flavor and protein. 

2. Feel free to add a handful of roasted veggies like sweet potatoes, zucchini, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts to your bowl, too.

3. Want your Paleo power bowls even faster? Frozen quinoa is in just about every supermarket now, so you don't have to spend time boiling and draining.

4. I also make meal prep easier by getting my groceries delivered – I order superior-quality chicken, steak, and bacon from Butcher Box and get delicious wild-caught salmon from Vital Choice.

While this is a Paleo-friendly meal, you don’t need to follow a special diet to enjoy all the great clean, lean protein, healthy fats, and fiber this recipe has to offer.
