This is an all-time favorite. Typical Carb sources of rice, potatoes, oats etc. can get kind of bland, so switch it up and try some quinoa and chickpeas. As well as an excellent carb source they have a far greater protein content compared to the sources listed above. This dish would be a perfect lunch, or used as a pre or post workout meal.
