Kale & Sweet Potato Quinoa Bowl
Quinoa bowls are one of my favorite go to meals! They are super easy to make and are great for meal prep. Toss in a few veggies and you’re good to go. Do you know they sell these types of meals pre-made in the frozen section of most grocery stores? However, what I have found, it’s cheaper and you get more bang for your buck when you make it yourself. And guess what, it only takes about 15min to make.

1 sweet potato

1/2 tsp of vanilla
