HEB and #TexansHelpingTexans
I am proud to partner with HEB on this post to share about their Texans Helping Texans campaign! During these crazy times HEB is encouraging us all to help each other by uniting as a community. The best way I know how to help is sharing delicious and nourishing recipes that you can easily make at home.
While we can’t get together in person right now, we can still share a meal and nourish our bodies! I asked my followers on Instagram what kind of recipes they were craving right now and quick & healthy won. These roasted salmon quinoa bowls are one of my go-to quick & healthy weeknight meals.
Quick and Healthy Dinner Recipe
These are easy to customize, so you can swap in whatever protein you like. I love the combo of salmon and sweet potatoes but you can really use whatever roasted veggies you have on hand like cauliflower, carrots or brussels sprouts. Broccoli can be fresh or frozen or you can always through in some leafy greens like spinach or kale!
I am always whipping up homemade dressings because they are so easy and taste like a million times better than the bottled stuff. I love a good creamy dressing and this one really hits the spot! In a pinch, if you can’t find fresh dill, sub in dried dill in half the amount the recipe calls for.
