Cooking made simple and healthy with BOU™ Bouillon cubes

By Stephanie Stewart April 26, 2018

A few months ago, I was tired of feeling sluggish and eating the right foods was my first step to living a healthier lifestyle. As a busy working mom on the go, I knew there had to be an easier way. I began researching some meal prep recipes that I thought I could incorporate into my new lifestyle. The only challenge I was running into was so many of the spices and broths that I was looking to use in my recipes were full of artificial dyes and ingredients, stuff that I try my best to keep out of my diet. When I found BOU’s better for you bouillon cubes, I was so excited to finally find a healthier option to speed up my meal prep! I have used these cubes in so many different ways since discovering them, I thought I would share a tried and true (and quick) meal prep recipe that tastes as good as it looks!
