    1. you could substitute another kind of bean – cannelini, white beans, pinto beans, black beans – or any other lean protein, like shredded chicken.

    2. Any other protein would work, chicken, turkey, salmon, beans, tempeh :)

    3. My husband hates chickpeas, so for him I always sub either black beans or black eyed peas. I would think that any type of bens would work just fine.

    4. I’m going to use a dollop of roasted garlic hummus over the top of everything mixed…which essentially is the same thing but more palatable :)

    1. My favorite is salmon with garlic seasoning and lemon, lemony steamed kale, and quinoa with a lemon, honey, olive oil dressings :)

    2. I’ve been doing mine burrito bowl style – splitting protein with half chicken and half black beans then for my greens I’ve been doing just mixed greens and I roasted some zucchini and yellow squash seasoned with cumin/chili powder/cayenne/garlic (aka my own taco seasoning). Topped with various kinds of salsa and avocado. It’s super good!

    3. Last night I made a quinoa bowl with the quinoa, grilled shrimp, spinach, mushrooms, carrots, green onion, broccoli, and cashews. The dressing was a bit of soy sauce, lime juice, and ginger. It was awesome!

  1. I can’t wait to try this dressing! @littlemisstoneitup I love tex-mex themed bowls! I did one the other night with ground turkey and beans and bell peppers topped with salsa and avocado :D Yummm

  2. Any other tall over 5’10 ladies get hungry on the meal plan? If so, how and where do you add more calories? It’s hard when the meal plans give specific serving suggestions to guess what I should have :)

    1. have you tried the 100 and 200 calorie add-ons that are included in the challenge? Things like 1 cup of yogurt, 3 oz shrimp, etc.

  3. Does anyone know a good substitute for quinoa? I am allergic to it and am wondering if there’s a good, healthy alternative. Thanks!

  4. Just made a Walmart Pickup order for my meal prep and updated it so I can make this. SOUNDS SO GOOD!

  5. Good recipe, shall try it out next as it’s perfect for summer in Australia (pretty hot in Melbourne today, 36 Celsius/ 96.8 F), and I even have parley and mint in growing in my little herb garden :)

  6. Oh, my goodness… this quinoa bowl is so good! Why have I not made this before???
