My Go-to Recipe That Checks All The Boxes

Friday, April 17th, 2020

I’ve been getting a lot of DM’s from you guys about what I eat on a daily basis so I wanted to share with you one of my go-to recipes! I seriously make this at-least once or twice a week and it checks all the boxes – healthy, easy and the hubs loves it!! I don’t have a name for, but Madison calls it “The Bowl” – inspired by True Foods Ancient Grains bow. I’m always looking for meals that are really filling and don’t leave me snacking for the rest of the night (anyone else have major cravings around 10pm?!!) and this recipe always does the trick. Sharing ingredients below!


  • Hummus
  • Avocado (sliced)
  • Black Beans (cooked)
  • Roasted Butternut Squash
  • Pearled Couscous (cooked)
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Feta Cheese
  • Red Onion (chopped)
  • Cilantro (chopped)
  • Salt
  • Pepper 


First, pre-heat your oven to 400°F. While the oven is pre-heating, peel and seed 1 butternut squash and cut into 1-inch cubes. Toss the butternut squash with olive oil a large bowl. Then season with salt and pepper. Arrange your squash on a baking sheet and then place in the oven for about 25min, or until the squash is tender and slightly crisped. TIP: I buy the pre-cubed butternut squash and it cuts down your time for this step! Also, I typically roast a big pan so that we can eat throughout the week – Navy loves it too!

Start constructing your bowl by taking about 3-4 tablespoons of hummus (I love the eggplant hummus!) smeared on the bottom for your base. Next, add about half a cup of your pearled couscous followed by 1/3 cup of butternut squash. 

Next, add about 4 tablespoons of cooked black beans – these are a great source of protein. For the next layer, place 1/2 sliced avocado in a layer. Then, add a sprinkle of red onion, roasted pumpkins seeds and feta-cheese (goat is also a great substitute here!).

Lastly, garnish with cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.
