Quick & Easy Chicken Cilantro Lime Bowl

Quick and easy healthy meal #goodeats
This chicken bowl is one of my go-to meals.  When it comes to staying on track I enjoy quick and easy meals that will not take all day cooking.  I also love how easy this meal is so easy to bring with you when you are on the go. Chicken cilantro-lime bowl has become one of our stable recipes for our lunch menus.  My husband and my kids love this bowl,  and I love that it’s healthy and a well-balanced meal for my family. You can make this bowl with literally anything you like, steak, shrimp, or fish.  You can also make it with just veggies.  You can add or remove any ingredients you do not like.  What I love about making bowls is the endless possibility of ingredients you can use. Making bowls for lunches is easy for meal prepping.  You can make an assortment of veggies and protein at the beginning of the week.  Have them on hand and ready to go, so that you are not tempted to grab an unhealthy option.  The key to success is being prepared.
