Mexican Power Bowl

By April 20, 2016Blog, Recipes

With the sun shining and summer just around the corner, we start wanting to take less time to cook/prep food, and more time to spend outside doing things we love!  This Mexican Power Bowl is a healthy, light dish that is easy to whip up, and can be eaten on the go, or on the deck.  There is no need to turn on the oven, and only requires a quick use of the stove, and otherwise is all chopping and mixing, easy!

This is perfect for warmer weather as well, as it can be eaten cold and is refreshing on a hot day.  It is packed with flavor and protein, and it will fill you up without making you feel heavy or guilty!  It has so many good things inside it, and is naturally gluten-free too!  You be fueled up and ready to take on those summer sports or bike rides!

About Jenna Twerdun

Diagnosed with Celiac disease in Sept 2013, I initially didn’t know where to turn! After getting over the shock that I’d never enjoy a pint of Guinness again, I reached out to the Calgary community via social media to find this site, and a few others, but not a lot of info out there, and sometimes, a lot of confusing info to sift through. As someone who is always out on the town, trying new restaurants and travelling, I couldn’t be happier to be involved to help fellow celiac and GF people understand that life is not over – in fact, I’ve hardly skipped a beat.
