Rainbow Bowl

My lunch held me over until dinner! I almost always need some sort of afternoon snack, but I didn’t even think about food until work was over and I was getting started on dinner.

Go pizza, veggies and hummus!

As for dinner, I had a Mexican-flavored rainbow in a bowl.


So many colors in this dinner – and it was delicious! Layers of flavor, tons of colors and textures…the perfect salad bowl.


Let’s see if I can remember everything.

  • romaine
  • fat free refried beans
  • brown rice/quinoa/salsa mixture
  • corn
  • scallions
  • red onion
  • tomato
  • avocado
  • radishes
  • cilantro


I told Nick during dinner that all Mexican restaurants should offer fresh diced avocado, red onion, cilantro, and radishes with every meal – for free! They’re my favorite toppings for every dish we make at home.

If you haven’t tried radishes on a Mexican meal, do it! And have them with avocado. They’re awesome together – creamy and smooth from the avocado, crisp and crunchy from the radish.


I’ve got a few loads of laundry to fold, some popcorn to eat, and a puppy to play with.

Not bad for a Monday. :)
