[RECIPE] Toni’s Shrimp Quinoa Avocado Bowl

Recipes

When I’m hungry, I want something that is easy to prepare, delicious and will keep me satiated for hours. That’s why, as a nutritionist, I make sure I balance my macro-nutrients in every meal and have plenty of healthy recipes on hand! Having the right proportion of lean proteins, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats, metabolize slowly which helps to regulate my blood sugar. I have eaten this way for over 10 years and I can tell you it’s the ultimate way to help your body feel good, while getting the nutrients and energy you need to get through your day. Plus, I love all dishes that are “one dish wonders”. It makes clean-up so easy too!
