Who said you can't have chocolate whenever you want? This dairy-free bowl is packed with protein: a 1/4 cup of almond butter is blended with almond milk and a banana (for a dose of potassium). Then it's topped with plump blueberries, crunchy almonds, and some chocolate chips for a sweet finish.
This Black Rice, Banana, and Coconut Breakfast Bowl is as delicious as it is nutritious. Black rice has high levels of fiber, meaning it is absorbed at a slower rate into the body, keeping you feeling fuller for longer. And you can enjoy rice for breakfast! Add some fruit and almond milk and it's a hearty dish for a full day.
This salad gets a hearty boost from nutty wild rice, which jives so swell with sweet roast butternut squash. Craisins, fresh cilantro, and tangy lemon juice add an extra dose of sweet and savory flavor and the poblanos heat it up. This is a stunning side dish to roasted chicken or a great main with the addition of some fresh goat cheese for protein.
Skip the fast food joint and make your own version of that hearty, filling, and comforting chicken bowl. It's a layer of fluffy lemon, lime, cilantro rice topped with sweet and plump corn and paprika and chili dusted chicken strips. For an even healthier version, swap in brown rice or quinoa.
This Speedy Burrito Bowl is quick to make and packed with nutrient dense ingredients like avocado, which contains heart-friendly monounsaturated fat, vitamin E, folic acid, vitamin B3 and potassium. It's layers of nutty black rice with plump beans, pungent cilantro, and juicy red tomatoes, tossed in a light, bright vinaigrette.
This gorgeous salad makes a great dish for potlucks or picnics, especially since all you have to do is pack the utentils! The trick with this smart recipe is that the dressing goes in first, followed by layers of nutty rice, creamy avocado, and crunchy peppers. When it all tumbles out, it's enveloped in spicy sauce.
Quinoa is hearty, healthy, and easy to make. Spoon it into a bowl and top it with Wonderful Halos mandarins, grilled chicken, cilantro, black beans, and savory chipotle lime vinaigrette to make a few Mandarin Quinoa Chicken Bowls perfect for dinner or a packed lunch.
Bursting with fresh, zingy flavours, this Kale, Almond, Quinoa and Goji Berry Salad is packed with nutrients. Kale is an excellent plant source of easily-absorbed calcium, as well as being one of the highest antioxidant foods available. The quinoa, almonds and goji berries also contain protein.
This Paleo Bison Plantain Breakfast Bowl is a delicious bowl that’s truly great for any time of the day! This bowl offers a healthy protein in the form of ground bison, starch in the form of sweet plantains, greens from kale, and a delicious roasted tomato cream sauce to bring it all together.
