When people ask me about things that I eat, or to share recipes, I usually just tell them that I throw everything on a plate, and eat it. And it's true! I'm by no means your recipe guru, but rather follow the fab four rule: protein, healthy fats, fiber, and greens. If those four categories are on my plate, then I am good to go!
This plate is inspired by that same mentality - quick, easy and full of all the nourishment you need! It's great for a work-from-home lunch or delicious dinner!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
1-2 servings organic chicken sausage
1 cup quinoa
side of fresh berries (optional)
salt + pepper
extra-virgin olive oil
For the quinoa, take 1 cup of quinoa and 1.5 cups of water and simmer in a small pot on medium heat. Stir occasionally, until water has been absorbed. When fully cooked through (water will be gone and quinoa will be soft), turn heat off.
For the chicken sausage, simply slice up and cook in a skillet on a medium heat. Turn over each side every minute or so, until cooked to desire consistency. Add in the mushrooms and asparagus and continue to stir until flavors mix.
On a plate, cut up your fresh fruit, avocado and tomatoes and then add your quinoa, chicken sausage and veggies and enjoy!
Top with salt and pepper or other added spices!
