Teriyaki Chickpea Bowls

I get it, it’s so hard to be inspired in the kitchen and sometimes we can easily fall into food ruts. With summer over and the kids back at school I am feeling so creative in the kitchen and I am really excited to get you fired up to switch things up and get cooking.

I love sharing recipes that are simple to make the criteria is that they should have 10 ingredients or less, ingredients that people have on hand in their kitchen, have two or less pots/pans and can be made in under 30 minutes. This recipe comes together so easily, and it’s really versatile, I actually created it two ways one with chickpeas and one with chicken so you can make the version that best suits your nutritional goals and needs. Feel free to get creative and add in your favourite veggies, the more the merrier!

I hope everyone had a great first week back at school. I know our home was a little sad that summer vacay was over but we are all loving the routine that back to school brings. I am not going to lie over the summer meal prepping and cooking wasn’t always on point. This week a huge focus for me was to get back into prepping lots of healthy meals - specifically family dinners, lunches and lots of snacks.

I got the kids to help with snack prep, they whipped up cookies and energy balls from the cookbook and made some with sunbutter so they would pack them in their lunches for school. I planned and prep a weeks worth of delicious dinners.

I was recently on a cooking video sharing easy dinners to whip up for moms, and this is one of my new recipes that I shared with the viewers. So obviously my next move was to share it here with all of you. The reason I love this dish is because it is so versatile, it can be made for dinner or as a freezer meal and it’s a hit with the whole fam. Honestly these types of meals are my fav because they are easy to make, flavourful, healthy and just really really good!
