Eating the rainbow is one of the best ways to obtain a wide array of nutrients and minerals. This meal sure does that! You will literally feel so healthy as you take each bite.
What I love most about this meal is the simplicity. It literally took me 10 minutes to whip up, made hardly any mess and tasted absolutely insane. This is exactly how I like to cook, and all of my recipes that I blog about or include in my meal plans for my clients follow these principles. Not many of us want to slave away in the kitchen and waste time!
