A bowl of goodness – quinoa, grilled chicken, white beans, chopped veggies, pumpkin seeds, feta, and scallions, all topped with a yellow Sunshine Sauce. Please welcome guest post and my dear friend, Heather K Jones.
Hey there, I’m Heather K. Jones. I’m a registered dietitian, a nutrition consultant for Skinnytaste, and the founder of Smaller Size Bigger Life, an online coaching program for women who struggle with emotional eating, binge eating, overeating, or body image issues.
I’m so excited to guest post on Skinnytaste today (thank you, Gina!), because I’m sharing a recipe from the streets of Seattle… literally!
My two sisters and I live in the Seattle neighborhood of Queen Anne, and every Thursday we meet at the local Farmers Market. It’s the best place to get the freshest organic produce, as well as local meat, cheese, honey, flowers and more.
The market is also a Seattle street-food dream – tons of local food trucks and carts gather at the market each week, and it’s so much fun sampling all of the wonderful dishes. One of our favorite food carts, I Love My GFF (Gluten-Free Food), also happens to be the healthiest.
Their signature Sunshine Bowl is a delicious (and nutritious!) mix of quinoa, grilled chicken, white beans, chopped veggies, pumpkin seeds, feta, and scallions, all topped with a yellow Sunshine Sauce.
The secret to this bowl is definitely in the sauce—a yummy combo of almonds, lemon, honey, and basil. It took my sister Lori (she’s a wiz in the kitchen) and I a while to re-create the Sunshine Sauce at home, but after a few tries I think we finally nailed it. I hope you enjoy this Sunshine Bowl as much as we do!
