Protein packed chicken and avocado macro bowl

Need a filling dinner after a busy day? Try this delicious Chicken Macro Bowl sent in by 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Cassie.

Cassie says, ‘This macro bowl is a perfect way to quickly prepare a protein packed nutritious meal.

“It will keep you fuller for longer as well as helping to maintain regular bowel movements, which leads to less bloating.’

Feel free to switch up the veggies to whatever you have on hand (leftovers work well too). We love recipes like this in the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. As a member you’ll have access to recipes for meals such as the Citrus and Chicken Bowl, Grilled Tahini Salmon Bowl or the Sticky Soy Beef Bowl.

As Cassie says, ‘A Macro Bowl ticks all the nutritional boxes!’
