If you follow along with me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I eat most of my meals out of a bowl. For some reason food has always just tasted better to me that way. I love the idea of being able to throw in a bunch of your favorite things and end up with a filling and satisfying meal!
One thing that I often work with clients on is the importance of meal preparation as well as helping with easy, healthy recipes that can be thrown together in a pinch. I always recommend having tons of greens, cooked quinoa, brown rice, beans and lentils in the fridge that are ready to go for a quick and complete meal.
The Nourish Bowl is the perfect example of a complete meal that can be on constant repeat, and because of its many different variations it never gets boring!
It starts with a base of dark leafy greens that is then topped with a protein, complex carbohydrate, healthy fat, and of course as many veggies as your heart desires! You can make it completely raw, use only roasted veggies, or use a mix of both. Anything goes, which is what makes it my go-to meal.
I literally eat a nourish bowl every single day, and it is always the meal I look most forward to.
