    It was very hot in Cape Town today and I couldn’t think what to make for supper that was light and easy. Then I remembered seeing your post on the weekend. And I made a bowl with BBQ chicken, rice & quinoa, avo, tomato, cucumber, corn, broccoli and cheese. My three kids (7,4,1 yrs) loved it!! It will definitely be a regular. Thank you!

    1. Oh that makes me happy! I just love that you can throw just about anything in a bowl and mix it up and it works!! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Blessings to you in Cape Town…(someday I will visit that area!!! :)) Aloha!

    So funny as I made these two days before you posted this! I have 3 boys (including an 8 wk old) and my husband was out of town for a few days. Trying not to throw the towel in on my normally healthy cooking which I love to do. But sleep deprivation from night feedings and two other rowdy boys all day were making dinner and prep feel daunting. Somehow the idea for burrito bowls came into my head and same here…my kids loved them! Serious win when it’s kid approved, easy AND healthy! We did shredded chicken which I had thrown in the crock pot…it only took 2 hours for a few breasts….easy with some olive oil and seasoning. I threw some brown rice in a pot and as long as you plan to have enough time for that to cook it’s mostly hands off. Then I opened a can of black beans, verde salsa (my fav) and did the frozen corn zapped in the microwave and cilantro, fresh tomato, cheese, and sour cream. We love your bbq chicken salad…it’s become a summer favorite in my family…so I love that idea for a bowl. Also made me smile to see the purple sweet potatoes since we lived in Okinawa for a few years! Excited to have some ideas for other variations…will be a go to meal when Daddy is traveling!

    1. OH that is so great, Elizabeth. Thinking your husband may like these too! (Mine loves them!) I always wondered if they actually have Okinawa sweet potatoes in Okinawa! Fun that you lived there. Thanks so much for sharing! Much aloha-

  3. Thank you so much! I just added it to our menu this week!

    1. Oh good! I have no doubt it’ll be a hit. 🙂 (But I’d love it if you reported back, ok?) XO Aloha!

  4. Fabulous post!!! My kids will love making up their own bowls. Keep these great posts coming lol

    1. Thank you! Yep–My boys love putting their own bowls together as well. Hope you all enjoy and keep me posted! Aloha-

  5. Wow, these look delicious! Can’t wait to try these recipes. “Deconstructed” burritos. Less mess, less carbs! Last night we made your recipe for white bean chicken chili–again! The whole family helped to make it. We lined up while Tommy served it up in our bowls! We had fun. 🙂 Thanks for your healthy, yummy recipes!

    1. Oh I love hearing that Wendy! Makes my heart happy. Glad to see you here, I need to find your email still and reply! 🙂 Much love to you and the family!

    These look great! I especially like the purple sweet potatoes in the vegetable. Do you also make or have recipes for poke bowls?

    1. Thanks Mark! My sons actually are the poke pros. They make poke using their fresh-caught fish> 🙂 I’ll have to share their favorite recipe sometime. It’s really easy and so good!
