Delicious healthy nutritionally balanced lunch in the fridge waiting for you I have tons of recipes for meal prep bowls that you can take to work that you can eat cold hot warm whatever you like on my website but I will never stop adding to the list so let me show you a new recipe today the first thing that we're gonna have to do is preheat the oven to.
400 degrees Fahrenheit and then get to The Chopping board we're going to start by peeling either one small or half a large red onion and then slice it then peel three to four cloves of garlic depending on their size and chop those finely and lastly get a red bell pepper make sure you dried it after washing it and.
To seed it and then slice that one as well now get the biggest baking sheet you have and add a large handful of washed and dried french green beans together with a sliced red bell pepper sliced onion and chopped garlic now season the veggies with sea salt pepper paprika and oregano and then.
Drizzle olive oil over everything and use your hands to massage the oil and seasoning into each piece of vegetable make sure everything is well oiled so it roasts nicely instead of drying out and burning not set this aside and get a baking dish to which you add two large chicken breasts of eight to nine ounces each.
Season the breasts with Paprika oregano sea salt and pepper then use your hands to ensure the spices are well distributed and then drizzle olive oil over the breasts and worked it all in with your hands as well this is to ensure the spices don't burn in the oven now Place both the baking sheet with the.
Veggies and the baking dish with the chicken into the oven for 25 minutes set an alarm trust me always set an alarm for anything you put in the oven you'll forget about it in the meantime we're going to cook quinoa there are several different ways to cook quinoa I have a full tutorial on how to cook it any way you like but my favorite way to cook.
Quinoa is in the instant pot you add one to one ratio of quinoa and water to your instant pot with a little bit of sea salt then set it to one minute on high pressure and let pressure release naturally all of this process will take about the same time as your food in the oven so everything will be ready at the same time once your time went off take.
The veggies and chicken out of the oven and sprinkle a little bit of feta cheese over your roasted vegetables as well as a little fresh dill and now it's already time to assemble your meal purples add quinoa to the bottom of your bowl a quarter of the roasted veggies with feta and Dill and top it all with half a cut up baked chicken breast drizzle some.
Fresh lemon juice over everything and it's ready to either eat or store in the refrigerator for up to four days I often get asked why I or many other bloggers post meal prep recipes with only four bowls instead of five when there are five work days in the week this is because protein both animal protein and plant protein only last safely for up to.
Four days after cooking now that does not mean that on day five it becomes toxic of course but simply the risk of getting food poisoning increases on the fifth day so this is why all my recipes only suggest making four you can in this case make five and freeze one and then just take it out one day before you're going to eat it put it in the fridge so.
It can defrost and that way it's 100 safe to eat I hope you enjoyed this video and I hope you're gonna give this recipe a try if you do please don't forget to snap a picture and show me I love seeing when you make any of my recipes and I'll see you with my next video bye
