Tex-Mex Veggie Bowl

Tex-Mex Veggie Bowl

I love a good make ahead meal for weekday lunches. Even though I work from home, it’s not all rosé all day and brunch spreads as one might think! I can’t lie, somedays are really fun but a lot of the times as a blogger I am the account, business negotiator, email wizard and general catch all person for this little business I am trying to run. So while, I love a nice leisurely lunch, I often find myself trying to juggle it all. Enter the Tex-Mex Veggie Bowl!

This bowl recipe, along with this Strawberry Banana Overnight Oat Bowl and Spicy Cilantro Pesto Farro Bowl, first appeared in the April 2018 edition of Austin Woman Magazine.

You can really make this bowl your own and that is what I love about it! This is a good base but you can switch up your toppings with whatever you have on hand. For some extra protein, add in chickpeas seasoned with fajita spices or some chicken from a meal earlier in the week. It’s really up to you!

I love adding in as many veggies as possible so that I am getting a big dose of nutrition in the middle of the day. This helps keep me full until dinner and you know, all those vitamins and nutrients keep me healthy and out of the doctor’s office!
