Southwest Power Lunch

So, I'm sure you have seen these little colorful containers floating around somewhere by now. Well, let me tell you, when they showed up at my door over 2 years ago I just about threw them in the trash after I finished laughing at how small they looked. Well, don't be fooled by their size. This is coming from someone who can put some food down, okaaay?! 

Ok, so if you are using these containers already, here is a super simple power lunch that is easy to make and take to work or make ahead and keep in the fridge at home to grab during the day!

Southwestern Chicken and Quinoa Power Lunch
Use shredded rotisserie chicken breast and leftover quinoa to make this meal prep lunch in minutes.

  • 1 green: mixture of chopped green and red bell peppers and white onion
  • ½ green: sliced cucumbers
  • 1 purple: mango
  • 1 red: boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 yellow: quinoa
  • ½ yellow: corn kernels
  • 1 blue: shredded cheddar cheese
  • Free food: cilantro, lime wedge (not pictured)

Combine the peppers and onion, chicken, corn, quinoa, and cheese for a bold and colorful salad — no lettuce or dressing needed. Tuck a wedge of lime in your lunchbox to squeeze over the mango and cucumber slices and give them a light dusting of chili powder, you can even mix them together!
