Hi – do you have the calorie, fiber, protein count etc. for the recipes you list on your website?
Thanks! This looks great!
Hey Karen! I have never been much of a calorie counter to be honest, but I know some want the information. I will work on getting that information up for you 🙂 It is delicious though and fairly low in calories!
Love your website, workouts and recipes 🙂
How much is a serving of quinoa?
Thank you so much :)! I use a 1/2 cup of cooked Quinoa for this recipe.
I just made this for the first time today. Soooo good!! Thank you!
oh yay! so glad you loved it!
Hi Katie- This looks delicious and I’m so excited to try this. I’m planning on having it for lunch tomorrow after the gym!! 🙂
Hello! I’m interested in making this, but was wondering how many servings it makes so I can adjust it for meal prep :). I was kind of confused because 1/2 cup quinoa sounds like one serving, but 40 oz of chicken seems like a lot! But I also don’t cook much so 🙂
Oh I just realized that’s 4oz not 40 oz. Never mind lol!
Oh yea 🙂
The picture looks like it has tomato, corn, and cilantro, none of which are in the recipe. Confused..
