I served up chicken mole with a side of quinoa and a summer salad.  See instructions, ingredients, and steps for my meal below.

Chicken Mole:

I just followed Kevin’s recipe for the chicken mole which can be found here: http://fitmencook.com/healthy-chocolate-chicken-mole-meal-prep/

Quinoa (Ingredients):

  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 1/4 of a red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 2 anaheim peppers
  • 1 tbsp of chicken consome
  • 3 cilantro stems
  • 2 cups of water

Quinoa (Steps):

  1. Blend the garlic, red onions, and roma tomatoes for 30 seconds.
  2. Wash quinoa if not already pre-washed.
  3. Place quinoa in non stick skillet with high heat.  Add blender mixture and the 2 cups of water.  Bring to a boil.
  4. Add chopped up bell peppers and sliced Anaheim peppers and mix in.
  5. Add chicken consome seasoning.
  6. Lower heat to simmer and cover for 15 minutes.
  7. Once the quinoa absorbs water and is fluffy, uncover and stir a bit and then add cilantro stems.
  8. Let the quinoa continue to simmer uncovered for another 5 minutes and continue to stir occasionally.
  9. Enjoy!

 Summer salad:

I mixed spinach, arugula, pecans, strawberries, and apples.
