Nothing delights us more than finding a healthy recipe that *actually* tastes delicious. Between eating a jar full of Oreo chocolate chip cookies and quenching our thirst with gin summer cocktails, it鈥檚 easy to see why it might be a good idea to pause our sweet intake to cleanse our bods. But when we decide to swap our beloved chocolate cake recipes for something a little (dare we say) healthier, it鈥檚 vital that the recipe tastes just as good as it is nutritious. That鈥檚 why these strawberry chia quinoa bowls are going to be your new BFF during the summer. They鈥檙e filled with so many wholesome ingredients and taste so yummy that you might actually forget about your favorite sugary snacks (okay, we said maybe).
