There was a time when bodybuilders looking to load up on calories turned to artery-clogging junk food to get the most caloric bang per mouthful. Well, those days are over. You can get all the calories you need while still keeping it super healthy—and super delicious.

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (follow package directions)

  • 3 oz. shredded organic free range rotisserie chicken breast (about 1/2 cup)

  • 1 oz. organic raw walnuts, coarsely chopped (about 14 halves)

  • 1 medium organic orange, peeled and chopped

  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh organic cilantro leaves

  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tsp. red wine vinegar

  • 1/4 tsp. Himalayan or celtic salt 


1- Place quinoa, chicken, orange, walnuts, and cilantro in serving bowl.
2- Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar; season with salt and pepper.
3- Mix well and enjoy.

Tip: Store-bought rotisserie chicken is very versatile. You can bone and skin the chicken and use the leftover meat in other recipes throughout the week. It’s great in sandwiches, soups, and salads.
