Tonight’s dinner and meal prep adventure (don’t you just love packing leftovers of yummy meals for lunch??) is TANDOORI CHICKEN BOWLS! Using @chobani Greek yogurt again to cook creamy sauces, and the results were pretty phenomenal if I don’t say so myself. Tandoori chicken recipe stolen from @thebigmansworld (thank you!). Then added it in a nutrition-packed bowl with: •kale •chickpeas •mushrooms •more veggies •cilantro •scallions •and toasted almonds! {and more spices of course} #healthy #dinner #dinnertime #dinnertonight #vegetables #cleaneating #nutrition #healthyrecipe #mealprep #fitfam #15minutemeal #spicy #foodporn #saladbowl #chickpeas #recipe #fitfood #fitfoodie #healthyliving #fitness #powersalad #fituniversity #almonds #fitspiration #greekyogurt #kale #ethnicfood #nutritionstripped #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeedhealth
