Protein Lunch Bowl

I am a busy working mom spending most of my weekdays traveling between my psychotherapy office and my college classroom.  Meal prep and meal planning is vital if I want to eat healthy, homemade food. 

Here is an example of this weeks protein bowl. You can get creative with whatever ingredients you like and even mix up the dressing! I measure out the ingredients into individual bowls or mason jars and store them in the fridge so I can grab one before I walk out the door.


1 large zucchini (made into zoodles)

1 large beet (made into noodles)

3 large carrots (shredded)

1 1/2 cups cooked black beans

1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa

1/2 cup toasted blanched raw almonds

2large cooked chicken breasts (coat with 1TBSP ground tumeric, 1tsp salt, 1tsp cardimum and he juice of 1 lemon) place in baking dish and bake , covered for 45-5o min at 350. After its cooked cut and dice .

Miso dressing: makes 1 cup

4 1/2 TBSP fresh miso , 4 1/2 TBSP honey, 3TBSP rice vinegar, 3TBSP mustard (Dijon or yellow work)

I like to measure out 1/4 c rice, beans and carrots as well as chicken. 2TBSP almonds, zucchini and beets and lettuce  to taste and 2 TBSP dressing which I place on top.
