October 2016 – Theme Plant Protein Power Bowls

Packed with protein, fiber and color, plant power bowls are trendy and delicious. Show us the healthy recipe that’s in your bowl!

I put together a little powerhouse of flavors just for the occasion. Spinach, quinoa, black beans, black-eyed peas, walnuts and hemp seeds add important protein and nutrients to the meal.

Here’s the breakdown according to the USDA.

  • Black beans are high in protein, fiber, potassium, calcium, iron, B vitamins, magnesium.
  • Black-eyed peas contain protein, Vitamin A, magnesium, fiber and calcium.
  • Hemp seeds are high in omega-3 and omega-6.
  • Quinoa is one of the few grains contains all nine of the essential amino acids. This grain is high in protein and fiber.
  • Spinach brings Vitamin A and Vitamin C to the table and helps promote skin and bone health.
  • Walnuts add omega-3 to our diet along with protein, fiber, Vitamin B-6, and magnesium.
