Chicken Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl

Chicken Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl

There’s something about making an Instagram worthy bowl for dinner; even if you’re not going to take a picture of it. I always make sure there is at least one brightly colored veggie and one healthy source of protein. I arrange it in a bowl just so, and then garnish the shit out of it. Seriously though, cooking for the gram will make you eat healthier. If you’re not into publicly posting your food, DM us!

This Chicken Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl was a little meek in the color department, so I threw in some steamed broccoli to make it IG worthy. It’s packed with protein and a skinny version of the traditional teriyaki sauce! I’ve made this a second time and also added roasted red peppers. The more color the better. 🙂
