Friend Friday Guest Post–Courtney Wallace!!

Look at this BEAUTIFUL family!!! This week my guest post is from my dear friend, Courtney!! She is a gem through and through. I first met Courtney many years ago through running, and I have loved her ever since. She is a good friend to all and loved by many.  I’m so grateful for her example and her love of food and running :). Court is sharing her Southwest Kale Quinoa Bowl and I can’t wait to try it!! Thanks so much for sharing with us today Court!! Love you!!

Southwest Kale Quinoa Bowl πŸ™‚


Prepare quinoa according to package (I make mine in the InstaPot for 10 minutes, 2 cups quinoa & 4 cups chicken broth)

Cook thawed chicken in InstaPot 1 lb for 20 min.  Add seasonings of 2tbsp cumin, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1tbsp Trader Joe’s Chili Lime salt, dash of cayenne.  
**shortcut–buy Costco rotisserie chicken (they even sell it off the bone which is really awesome if it grosses you out to shred a dead chicken πŸ˜‰ & use a pre-made packet of taco seasoning.

Dice kale/peppers/tomatoes/avocado

Shred carrots

Quarter lime

Drain black beans

Layer & garnish bowl:

Quinoa on the bottom

Add diced up kale 

**Now put this in your microwave for 1 min to soften up the kale :). Doesn’t hurt that it makes the kale a bright lovely green….I feel healthier if it looks pretty πŸ˜‰

Pile on the veggies & chicken.

Garnish with splash of lime & big scoop of salsa.

**My kids like to add a little cheese & a dollop of sour cream πŸ˜‰

Super filling and yummy!!!
