Green Goddess Quinoa Bowl

Can we talk about BYOL. Bring your own lunch. It’s hands down the email I get most from readers and definitely the question I get most from my friends… what’s a fun/easy/healthy/transportable meal that I can take into the office for lunch. And the answer is: a Green Goddess Quinoa Bowl!

Green Goddess Quinoa Bowl

I’m talking something that’s going to last a few hours until lunch rolls around. Something that can be prepped ahead of time. Something that you can mix and match different different vegetables with… you get the idea. While there are plenty of lunch ideas here on WGC… I’m kicking off a new BYOL feature and it’s starting with this Green Goddess Quinoa Bowl!

BYOL(unches) are meals that you can prep on a Sunday, they’ll take you through most of the week, and only require a minute or two of assembly or chopping before your dash out the door and head to work.  Because the last thing you want to do when you come home from a long day of work, is think about what to make for the next day. Ain’t nobody got time for that! Plus when are we going to kick back and watch The Voice?? Hello! So stay tuned for lots of BYOL features… and in the meantime… it’s all about a delicious Quinoa Bowl with a healthy/vegan Green Goddess Dressing!

  2. I love BYOL! I love knowing that when I open up my lunch bag I have something delicious and healthy to treat my body right during the work day. This salad looks exactly like what the doctor ordered for my 9-5 next week! Thanks Gaby.
