Sweet & Spicy chicken kabob with rainbow quinoa. Meal in 15-minutes.
You will enjoy this delicious kabob recipe with very nutritious quinoa. Quinoa is very high in protein and rich in fiber, much larger than most grains. It is also gluten-free and perfect if you are gluten intolerant.
During summer, we all love light food, salads or finger food. With, of course, light fruit juices or cocktails. Chicken kabobs are a great summer dinner option. This version is a combination of chicken breasts, bell peppers, onions, mustard and seasonings. Simple and easy to make, you will love it!
My favorite vegetables for grilling are red bell peppers, red onions and sometimes I add zucchini.
Cut chicken into pieces and set the oven to broil temperature. They can be prepped in an instant pot instead. Rub mustard on chicken pieces and season with our choice of seasonings.
Now cut bell peppers and onions. Then assemble the kabob with prepared chicken and veggies.
Spray a skillet with olive oil and place on medium-high heat. Place the assembled kabobs in the skillet. Rotate chicken until all sides are seared.
Place the kabobs on a baking sheet and bake in the oven. Bake chicken for about 4-6 minutes. Be careful and do not overcook them or burn them.
Serve them on a wooden plate and garnish. If you are fun of different sauces, you can make several types of light summer sauces and serve them with kebabs.
Grilled chicken kabobs are one of my best grilling options, and they never fail. I love to make them when my friends coming for a summer dinner party, planned at the last minute.

Have a good day, fit foodies!
While this year might not be the best time to hit the gym, you can still and exercise and work out in the comfort of your own home. Do you know what goes well after a good workout? A good protein-packed meal! Grab your whey protein, and it’s time to make some protein banana split!
Usually, the typical banana split consists of a banana split in half, three scoops of ice cream in any flavor, topped with nuts, chocolate or strawberry syrup, and cherries. The only thing about classic banana splits is that they are high in sugar content if consumed regularly. On the other hand, this protein-packed version of the banana split will definitely fill you up after a good workout.
For the ingredients, you’ll need one medium banana, non-fat Greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, and granola. Greek yogurt is yogurt strained to remove most of its whey, resulting in a thicker consistency, which makes it the perfect substitute for ice cream. You can also add dark chocolate chips according to your preference.
Start by cutting your banana in half lengthwise. Then if you want to slice up your strawberries and blueberries, you can slice them according to your preference. It’s also fine not to slice them up and eat them as they are. Place your banana on a rectangular plate, then add in your non-fat Greek yogurt. Throw in your fruits in the banana split, and sprinkle your granola as well. Voila! You just made a protein-packed banana split.
You can pair this up with a whey protein isolate of your choice. This recipe sure is a filling and muscle-building one because of its proteins, which makes it the perfect post-workout meal. You can also use this recipe as a low-carb breakfast to start your day right.
