We love power bowls. Their a great way to enjoy a bowl full of delicious foods that taste good together. The ingredients are easily interchangeable and can be swapped out for a variety of things to make use of whatever you have on hand. They are easy to put together, don’t take very long to make and such a great way to use up bits and pieces of whatever you have left on hand to minimize food waste. We honestly eat one of these once a week and something on Sundays prep big batches for our weekday lunches.
If ever you’re in need of a nutritious energy boost or have a big day ahead you can’t go wrong with healthy fats, grains and plant-based protein. These bowls are great before a workout too!
The basic formula is to start with the base ingredient- in this case we have whole grain brown rice (healthy grains), and then add a variety of toppings of raw or cooked veggies such as sweet potatoes, edamame, carrots, and micro-greens to create an assortment of various vegetables, then your protein which is our crispy tofu and the final touch of something saucy like a dollop of hummus.
With each bite there’s a little bit of everything. How we assembled the bowls you’ll noticed the ingredients are artfully arranged along the rim of the bowl purely for aesthetic presentation showcasing the different types of food that can be eaten together.
