Meals In Bowls

Meals in a bowl can be fun, easy, and healthy! Flavor combinations, cuisine type, breakfast/lunch/dinner… the options are endless! And if composed with balance, variety, and moderation, your bowl will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

Meals in bowls are the new trend! And not a bad one! Because they can provide healthy calories, vitamins, minerals, and all the nutrients we need to keep going. And for whatever reason food just seems more interesting when served from a bowl.

If you look around in malls, shopping centers, town centers you’ll start to notice this trend…Buddha bowls, nourish bowls, smoothie bowls and acai bowls, burrito bowls, and polenta bowls, and rice and noodle bowls. If you search google or Pinterest, there are a billion recipes.

So if you haven’t already, join the fun, and make a bowl!!
