How to Make a Healthy Power Bowl: The Base, The Protein, The Toppings
I love all those meal-in-a-bowl recipes you post, but I don't always have exactly the right ingredients for each one. Do you have a format you go by when building a balanced bowl?
Great question! I love those recipes, but for those times when you want to freestyle it, I have plenty of suggestions. Essentially, you just need a base, a protein, and some fun toppings!
* Riced cauliflower (freezer staple!)
* Shredded lettuce
* Zucchini noodles (another freezer staple)
* Broccoli slaw or cole slaw mix (steamed or raw)
* Spaghetti squash
* Cooked grains (like brown rice)
* Skinless chicken breast
* Canned/pouched tuna
* Shrimp (I buy it frozen)
* Extra-lean ground meat (chicken, turkey, or beef)
* Canned beans
* Soy crumbles (or chopped veggie burgers)
The Toppings & Sauces
* Fat-free Greek yogurt or light sour cream
* Teriyaki sauce
* BBQ sauce
* Your favorite salad dressings
* Shredded/crumbled/grated cheese
