Hi babes! It’s the first day of November and that means I legit just stuffed my face with candy all day yesterday. Sound familiar?! Halloween is over and it’s time to eat HEALTHY! The past three years I’ve done a “clean” November, eating strictly paleo and no alcohol until Thanksgiving. It’s a great way to get ahead of the holiday weight and feel good going into the new year. NO diet for me coming January 1st!
Today I wanted to share a go-to Paleo meal that I make all the time for lunch and/or dinner. I call it my Paleo Power Bowl. It’s delicious and filling! The base consists of a lettuce of your choice and my cauliflower rice. I prefer arugula for it’s peppery taste. Depending on the time of year, I layer on in-season veggies with my choice of protein. I recommend making a big batch of cauliflower rice and protein (crockpot chicken or ground turkey) at the beginning of the week so it’s easy to build a bowl! Prepping always makes eating healthy SO much easier!
Below is what you will need and the steps for making my nom nom Power Paleo Bowl. Let’s get to cooking, boos!

4 cups arugula
1 bowl of cauliflower rice – recipe here
