Total time: 
Serves: 2 servings
  • base: quinoa, rice, or cous cous
  • green: kale, arugula or mixed green
  • optional add-ins: sweet potato, cherry tomatoes, avocado, protein, olive oil, lemon
  1. Start with a base: quinoa, rice, or cous cous are what I gravitate to.
  2. Pick a green: kale, arugula or a mixed green are what I add but it can really be whatever you like.
  3. Optional add ins: I love sweet potato so I cook small pieces in the air fryer (12 min at 400 with olive oil, s+p). I always add cherry tomatoes and if I have a ripe avocado I top with some cubes/slices!
  4. Add a protein: If I'm cooking dinner with my boyfriend we usually add grilled chicken, but if it's for myself I typically do chickpeas (they're my favorite) and if I make a bowl for breakfast I add a fried egg!
  5. Dressing: Olive oil and a big squeeze of lemon!
