A fun way to eat your veggies and favorite grain and protein in one large bowl!

Well, this Jonas blizzard came through this weekend and boy, did he leave his mark. We were left with 28 inches of snow. The scene around is unbelievable! There came to a point in shoveling that we were wondering where we were going to put all the snow. We literally ran out of space to put it all. If you drove through our neighborhood, it’s massive mounds upon mounds. Taller than me!

It was little Winston‘s first snow ever. It was so cute and we got so many photos and videos. Too bad he recently had surgery so he couldn’t fully frolick around in the snow but we made sure he had a little tiny patch of snow so he could still get a little enjoyment out of it. I’ll have a snowy update on him and the blizzard soon!

We absolutely loved these quinoa bowls with roasted vegetables and chicken! They’re such an easy way to throw together a healthy meal during the week and you can literally fill your bowl with whatever you want. It’s like having your own Chipotle in your house but a slightly healthier one :)
