Quinoa Bowls with Grilled Vegetables and Corn Salsa for #SundaySupper #ChooseDreams

Leading a healthy and fit lifestyle is definitely something I strive for in my household. Not only is exercise/staying active an important element of our week, but the food we serve at our family table is a huge consideration. Today, I’m sharing what has become one of our favorite healthy meal options in my home. These quinoa bowls with grilled vegetables and corn salsa are customizable, fresh, and full of flavor. Won’t you dive in? Quinoa bowls One of the common misconceptions I hear from people when it comes to eating “healthier” is that it is expensive. I totally hear what they’re saying, but I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be a pricy endeavor! My biggest tip when it comes to shopping for fresh produce is to keep an eye on what is seasonal. If you are purchasing veggies and fruit that are in season, they will be at the lowest prices in comparison to veggies that are out of season. Right now, zucchini, yellow squash, and green beans are in an abundance in my neck of the woods…so most of my meals include them! In the fall and winter, I tend to see a lot of butternut squash, spaghetti squash, apples, and more. Quinoa bowls For me, it is fun to get creative with what is fresh. Don’t feel restricted by eating seasonally! And if there happens to be a vegetable or fruit that isn’t in season or at a reasonable price for your budget, check out the frozen section of your grocery store! My local store tends to have awesome BOGO sales, and I always end up picking up frozen edamame, peas, and corn to have on hand. Quinoa bowls …on to the recipe! I have a deep love for burrito bowls, but eating one every night of the week is probably not the most creative meal in the world. Therefore, I love coming up with different spins on the classic that offer new flavors and ingredients. These quinoa bowls with grilled vegetables are brightly colored, full of flavor, and are fun to put together too! Now, if you haven’t fully dived into the quinoa trend, you can always serve your veggies on a bed of rice. If you’re just slightly ready to test out quinoa, there are some nice brown rice/quinoa blends on the market I’ve tried and are a nice introduction for those who aren’t sure they’ll enjoy a full bowl of quinoa. Baby steps…baby steps. I personally ADORE quinoa – it is gluten-free, contains protein, and has an awesome texture. It’s great served cold or hot…it’s so darn versatile! Ok, I’ll stop declaring my love for quinoa now. For this yummy Sunday Supper, all you have to do is fire up your grill, dress your veggies and cook them, then plate them perfectly on top of your quinoa with a scoop of corn salsa. These quinoa bowls are vegetarian as-is, but you could very easily add a meat or fish of your choice to the mix. We’ve added grilled mahi mahi in the past, as well as chicken and pork tenderloin. Options, options….
