Happy New Year, friends! Now after an indulgent holiday season and overdoing it, let’s get a head start on our New Year’s resolution. What do I mean? It means making promises to ourselves to be healthy by making a stronger commitment to our health and our family’s health.

However, sometimes when you set one big goal, it can be hard to know where to start and easily give up. But if you set smaller goals to reach along the way, you’ll probably make more progress and fell more motivated to keep going.

So, I think one of the small steps you can take to reach your healthy goal is meal-prep. That’s why during this month of January I’ll be posting lots of meal-prep recipes to put you on the right track.

Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls

Today I’m sharing the first my meal-prep recipe of January, which is this delicious and quick to make Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls.

Tips for making These Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls:

  • If you want to save some time while prepare this recipe just use store-bought fajita seasoning. Also, use a vegetable cutter to slice the onion and bell peppers.
  • Marinade the chicken with the fajita seasoning for more than 15 minutes if you have the time. The chicken will be even more flavourful.
  • I like to store my meal-prep recipes in these handy meal-prep containers to package my Fajita Bowls. These are great containers that can be microwaved, frozen, cleaned in the dishwasher and it’s eco-friendly! They’re leak-prof lightweight, and it’ll keep your food fresh and safe.
  • These chicken fajita meal-rep bowls will last for about 4-5 days in the fridge, so this is the perfect recipe to make on Sunday and have everything ready during the week.

The Best Seasoning For These Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls:

One of the reason I love so much this recipe, it’s because of the Fajita seasoning. For this Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls I used…

  • ½ tablespoon chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

My Favorite Topping for These Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls:

For these Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls, I didn’t add lots of toppings because I want to keep it simple. This is the reason why I just topped them with cilantro and lime. But, you can also add tomato salsa, sliced avocado, cheese, sour cream, jalapenos and so on. The possibilities are endless with the bowls so feel free to add in whatever you prefer.

 Are These Chicken Fajita Meal-Prep Bowls Healthy?

Yes, it’s healthy. It’s loaded with nutritious ingredients, lean protein, vegetables and fibre. All this will make you feel satisfied and full for a long time after you eating it.

Also, to keep it low-carb and whole30/Paleo I didn’t add black beans or shredded cheese and sour cream. This is a very clean meal-prep recipe to enjoy all week long and don’t feel guilt after digging in this bowl 😉
