Cauliflower and quinoa bowl

How is everyone doing on there new years resolutions and healthy eating?! I’m doing pretty good. I worked out yesterday after such a long break and it felt so good to get my muscles moving again! As for my meals, I have been staying on track for the most part. I am not overly strict, I just do my best. Being hard on yourself for not eating right is not going to help at all, if you end up eating something unhealthy just get back on track the next meal or day. Self love is so important and knowing why you want to feel better is key. Eating right helps you sleep better, have more energy, helps with skin issues as well as weight loss. This dish is just kinda of a miss mash of this and that, I like to call it a cheap and cheerful meal. 😉
