I don't know if you've noticed, but eating meals out of bowls is all the rage right now. Meals on plates are so 2015. First there was soup, then there were smoothie bowls and now there are POWER BOWLS!
What's a power bowl, you ask? I don't think there's an exact definition, but based on my unofficial research, a power bowl includes lots of vegetables, a protein source (or two!), a base of either leafy greens or grains and a delicious sauce to top it all off!
Sounds pretty good, right? Power bowls are great because the flavor combination possibilities are endless! You can easily make them vegetarian by using plant-based protein sources like tofu, tempeh, quinoa, beans and chickpeas and the veggies you use can be raw, sauteed, roasted or grilled!
Get creative with your dressing and you can easily put an ethnic spin on your bowl with something like a Thai peanut sauce or a cilantro lime dressing.
Power bowls are also a great way to use up those leftovers in the fridge and reduce food waste! Sound good? Check out these 18 Healthy Power Bowls we've rounded up for you to try:
