Black Bean Sweet Potato Quinoa Bowl

Y’ALL! This is one of my favorite bowls to date! This black bean sweet potato quinoa bowl is so simple to put together and is so full of flavor. Not to mention, it’s beautiful and vibrant! It tastes indulgent, but it’s very healthy! It’s components are sweet potatoes, roasted corn, black beans, quinoa, and an avocado drizzle. All wonderfully, filling whole foods 🙂

This black bean sweet potato quinoa bowl is certainly not one of those meals that you eat and are hungry an hour later. Nope, not at all. The sweet potatoes and black beans will keep you full and satisfied throughout the night (or day if you wanna have it for lunch). Keep in mind that when you’re eating plant-based, you can eat MORE than what you did when you ate meat (if you’re a previous carnivore). The corn and cilantro add an element of freshness that I know you’ll love! Sprinkle it with a little lime juice and you’re in heaven.

About this avocado drizzle… does life get any better?! It was the perfect addition to this bowl to help tie everything together. Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!
