Steak Fajitas- The Seasonal Junkie

Before I tell you all about this Steak Fajitas protein bowl, I have some news…. Are you ready? Okay….

I’m Engaged!!

That’s right, my Boyfriend of 6 1/2 years popped the question at The Peach Festival in the apple orchard in Sedona. It was pretty magical. Honestly though, I don’t think that much emotion at once can be good for you. One minute I’m standing there wondering what he’s doing on his knee, the next I have a ring on my finger and don’t even know if I said anything., It was like I completely blacked out. Good thing he had set up his phone because I barely remember. And I know what you’re thinking… No. I did not have too many peach daiquiris. So basically, he’s stuck with my crazy ass and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Don’t feel too bad for him though. I feed him like a king… and I’m pretty sure I’m funny.

Okay now that we got the romantics out of the way bring on the steak fajitas protein bowl….

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I’m done with Keto and am eating normally again. Which is why I could not wait to whip up a batch of quinoa for this Steak Fajitas bowl. Obviously you can do whatever your heat desires… rice, barley, cauliflower rice… you do you. Quinoa was delicious though so feel free to follow my lead.

And if you’re not drooling already at the site of  this bowl of wonder. Check out the poblano crema! In my humble opinion, it’s the star of this baby. I used Greek Yogurt as the base and it paired perfectly well with the peppers. Don’t say I never did anything for you.
