Here's THREE delicious & healthy recipes to try that will make the perfect lunch or dinner! Makes a BALANCED meal (that I constantly talk about) because it contains all 4 components: PROTEIN (chicken), CARBS (potatoes + cauliflower), FAT (hummus + fat from the chicken), and VEGGIES (cauliflower). Keep reading for the recipes below!
| Kale & Pesto Hummus Crusted Chicken |
Perfectly juicy baked chicken coated in hummus that can be made with any type of hummus but I used Hope Foods Kale & Pesto Hummus. Recipe works great with chicken breasts but I used a mixture of chicken breasts, drumsticks, wings, and thighs.
| Roasted Japanese Sweet Potato Cubes |
If you know me at all, you know that these are my absolute FAVORITE potatoes in the entire world and I could eat them for every meal for the rest of my life... not kidding! They are a different texture than sweet potatoes and have purple skin with off-white flesh that turns golden when baked. So many different ways to cook these bad boys but I love to bake them in tiny cubes. I find them at Whole Foods or my local health grocery store (Kimbertons Whole Foods).

| Colorful Roasted Cauliflower |
Huh, purple and yellow cauliflower? Yup! Sometimes a bit of color makes things more exciting and appealing! No, they aren't dyed to look this color. They are NOT genetically modified. The yellow color is the result of breeding white cauli with carotene to give the yellow/orange hue and more Vitamin A. The purple hue comes from a powerful antioxidant anthocyanin, which is what gives red cabbage it's color! Again, found these colorful veggies at Whole Foods.
