My daughter was right. My 17 year old daughter had been begging me for almost two years to make nourish bowls for our lunches. These bowls are filled with raw and cooked foods and are also known as macro bowls and buddha bowls. I was not that convinced that this would be a game changer for us as we are already eating a lot of vegetables and we are 100% plant-based. Also, my husband likes eating hot, cooked foods except for lots of fruits and the occasional raw cucumber. So, I was hesitant to make these hearty salads as our regular lunches. Then my business coach Corinne, who is also plant-based, shared that she was feeling so great after eating these bowls for lunch. So, I set off towards the nourishing world of nourish bowls.
What makes a regular salad into a nourish bowl?
What have we noticed? We’ve noticed that we feel light and energetic after lunch and not as mentally and physically heavy and tired. We have also noticed that it is easier to fit in more servings of vegetables by eating this way. This is great as we know that 7-8 servings of vegetables and fruits per day is the goal for good health. These bowls are also easy to batch make. I usually have to prepare them twice per week, and then we always know what is for lunch. And my husband is fine as he can eat more of the cooked items with the dressing or eat other leftovers and be satisfied.
Here is a recipe for a nourish bowl that you may enjoy.
Hope you have a great week,
