5-minute winter wellness bowl

Diced and roasted sweet potatoes or butternut squash
Chopped Kale
Diced Carrots
Cooked Quinoa (I like tri-color for the visual appeal)
Italian Seasoning Blend
S&W White Beans
Vegetable Broth (low sodium)

1. For on the go meals I pre-prep all the ingredients (except broth and canned beans) and add them to a freezer bag.  You can chose any quantity depending on taste preference and serving size desired.
2. When ready to eat, pull out freezer bag and defrost overnight in refrigerator.
3. Then add broth and beans and heat either on stovetop or microwave.
