POWER BOWL 101
The power bowl is your solution to hitting the important food groups, maintaining energy and sometimes - doing a major fridge cleanout.
A true power bowl has four major components; protein, greens, fat and micronutrients. Also, anything goes in this bowl; add carbs, nuts, sauces and more - just ensure you have the four major groups and stick to the Easy 3 (organic/good quality, clean/clean ingredients and you feel good eating it).
Often we either rush through lunch because we're eating it behind a computer or rushing to the next task. Enter a quick and easy bowl that won't cause mid-afternoon fatigue and leave you craving more. This is made even easier by using what's already prepped. In this featured bowl, the sweet potato and rice were already cooked and in the fridge. All that was necessary was sautéing mushrooms for 6 minutes while the egg soft boiled for 6 minutes. The sweet potatoes just get added to the mushroom pan to heat up for a few minutes. Use 1/2 an avocado for those good fats and a tablespoon of seeds for micronutrients. The full recipe, instructions and other power bowl combos are on my site. Eat this for breakfast, lunch or dinner and you're sure to be feeling top-notch as the day moves forward.
Here’s what’s in my go-to bowl…
A Huge handful of organic spinach, rinsed and dried
½ a cup of cooked rice from Lundberg - this brand is out of California and produces a clean, organic product
½ an avocado
½ a cup of sauteed white mushrooms (sliced)
¾ a cup of roasted sweet potato - I roast mine at 400 for 30 mins. Spiced with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili powder and cumin. Tossed in organic extra virgin olive oil
1 soft boiled egg. Boiled for 6 mins.
1 TBS sunflower seeds - a great source of fat, antioxidants, detoxifying properties and VERY GOOD for women’s health. Here’s an article on the benefits of seed cycling for hormone balance.
Other great combos…
Salmon, mushrooms, edamame, broccoli, all tossed in tamari or coconut aminos (both are healthier/cleaner alternatives to soy sauce). Over a bed of organic spinach. Option to add avocado for those good fats!
Veggie Centric - Chickpeas, sweet potato roasted broccoli and quinoa. Over a huge bed of spinach and kale.
Greek style chicken, fresh tomato, cucumber, red onion, feta (option to leave out if dairy-free) and quinoa.
