To make the spicy taco bowls, you will need some chicken breasts, extra virgin olive oil, garlic granulate, cumin seeds, hot chili flakes, brown rice, black beans, and sweet corn.

You’ll also need a lot of vegetables, including spinach, carrots, tomatoes, and beetroot, as well as some lime, a pinch of cheese, and some tomato salsa to serve.

The bowls themselves are incredibly easy and quick to make.

All you need to do is finely chop the chicken and add some olive oil and your spices before leaving it in the fridge for an hour to allow the chicken to marinate.

Then cook the chicken in a pan and carefully assemble the various ingredients.

Previously, Leanne shared her morning breakfast recipe for staying lean all year round.

The 31-year-old said her daily breakfast choice of tropical oats is “ easy and healthy, ” but there’s also enough in it to mean she’s full until she eats after a busy morning of serving customers.

To make the dish, you will need 1/2 cup of milk, one-third of a cup of rolled oats, 25 grams of vanilla protein, 70 grams of frozen mango, two tablespoons of shredded coconut, and a teaspoon of chia seeds.

When she comes home from work in the evening, Leanne says she prepares all of her ingredients and pour them into a jam or mason jar.

Once they are in the jar, Leanne stirs them up and puts the jar in the fridge overnight so she has a delicious and nutritious meal ready for after she hits the gym in the morning.
