Cleansing Veggie + Protein Bowl

Cleansing Veggie + Protein Bowl with cruciferous veggies, leafy greens and clean protein // #ketorecipe #cleaneating
I've been experimenting with this recipe for the past few weeks, and am so excited to share it with you! It's packed with five different nutritious veggies, and features some lean & clean protein and healthy fat as well.

After going off of birth control recently, I'm making every effort to balance my hormones and repair my liver and gut (since hormonal birth control can take a serious toll on both). One thing I'm doing is eating lots of cruciferous veggies and fiber. This recipe has lots of both! It has a double dose of cruciferous veggies in the cauliflower rice and kale. The onion and garlic are great for gut health. Seriously, there are so many good-for-you things packed into one meal!

I'm not a chef or food blogger, so none of this has exact measurements or anything, but it I can make it, it's easy 😉 This makes 3 solo meals for me, and I sauteed a new batch of kale + tomatoes each time.

1lb organic ground chicken
1 diced white onion
1 diced bell pepper
1 bag frozen cauliflower rice
3-4 minced garlic cloves
avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
Himalayan pink salt
black pepper
garlic powder
onion powder
6 cups fresh chopped kale
halved cherry tomatoes
crumbled goat cheese or feta cheese

How to make it:
In one pan I start by prepping my ground chicken. I drizzle some oil in the pan and add the ground chicken, diced onion and diced bell pepper. As this is cooking I season the mixture with the salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. 

I then start my cauliflower rice in another pan along with the minced garlic. I season this with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder then cover with a lid to steam it for a few minutes. 

When the cauliflower rice is done, I push it over to the side of the pan, drizzle a bit of oil in the open space, and add 2 cups of kale + a handful of cherry tomatoes. I sautee these for a couple of minutes, and season with a bit of salt & pepper.

Bowl assembly:
I add 1/3 of the cauliflower rice to the bottom of my bowl, then 1/3 of the ground chicken mixture.  I then top with my kale, tomatoes, and a sprinkling of cheese. 

And Voilà!

That's it. I simple sautee 2 more cups of kale + a few tomatoes each time I reheat my leftover cauliflower rice + ground chicken mixture. Easy, healthy, delicious.
