Zen Bowls



I call these Zen bowls because that's what I feel when I look at them. Not only do these look amazing, they also taste incredible! With chicken, avocado, yams and rice, you have yourself a full, balanced meal that will keep you happy for a while. Also the sauce is bomb.

Ingredients:

- 1 chicken breast

- 1/2 cup rice

- 1/2 cup yam, diced

- 1/2 cup red onion chopped

- 1 tbsp coconut oil

- 2 tbsp peanut butter

- 1 tbsp soy sauce

- 1 tbsp honey

- 1 lime

- 1 tbsp sesame oil

- 1 cup spinach

- 1/2 avo

- 1tbsp sesame seeds

- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro

Make it happen:

1. Cook the chicken in the oven. 425F for 25 min should do the trick. For extra flavour, season it with a little bit of black pepper, chilli flakes, garlic powder and cinnamon.

2. In a large bowl, combine the yams with the red onion and throw in some olive oil, black pepper and dried oregano. Mix well and then transfer the yams and onion on a baking sheet and cook in oven at 425F for 20-25 minutes. I just cook this and the chicken at the same time.

3. Cook the rice in 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and then let it simmer. Once it's done, put the coconut oil in it and mix until all the rice is coated with it. This will add flavour and provide healthy fats.

4. The sauce: combine in a small bowl the juice from the lime, peanut butter, honey, soy sauce and sesame oil. whisk until it's mixed perfectly.

5. Once the chicken and yams are done, all you have to do is assemble to whole thing! Remember to add the avocado, sesame seeds and cilantro.

Meal prep tip:

You can make a large batch of this by multiplying all the ingredients by 5 and portion out 5 meals that are ready to go!


Due to the balance of the dish, you will feel full and energized for a long time. The carbs in this are all slow digesting, you are getting healthy fats from 3 different sources (PB, coconut oil and avocado), enough protein from the chicken and the spinach will bring in a healthy amount of fibre.


Enjoy the gains,

Clem
