Tasty Bowls

Veggie and grain bowls are one of my favourite quick and easy meals to make. They are great as a lunch or a dinner and they can be extremely filling. They are also brilliant for getting a variety of plant foods in one bowl. You could have a bowl for dinner every night but never have the same meal!

I have a basic structure for making a bowl which I am going to share with you. When I first started making them, I used to get a bit overwhelmed because I didn’t know what to put in. But over time, I’ve developed a bit of a plan that makes it super easy. Often times bowls can be made with leftovers or just basic items that you already have at hand.


The method for this recipe is super simple. Just pick items from each category and throw them in a bowl.

By picking something from each category you can make sure that your bowl is balanced, nutrient dense and delicious, of course!

The items listed in each of the categories are examples and ideas. Feel free to get creative and add something different.
