If you’re looking to add more superfoods to your diet, this quinoa, kale, and avocado bowl is the tastiest way to do it. Thanks to all the healthy ingredients, this dish delivers major nutrients (and flavor, too).
There’s a reason why kale has been having a moment lately. The leafy green is low in calories, high in fiber, and packed with good-for-you vitamins and minerals, such as iron (which helps your body produce red blood cells) and vitamin K (which is important for maintaining healthy bones).
And do we even need to mention the awesome health perks provided by avocado? The creamy fruit (so creamy it’s even delicious in ice cream) is a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and may also help lower inflammation.
And once you add sliced almonds, savory crumbled goat cheese, and protein-packed quinoa—which is technically a seed, not a grain!—to the mix, your bowl is loaded up with savory goodness that keeps you feeling satiated all evening long. In other words, you can say goodnight to those midnight munchies.
