What is a power bowl? A power bowl is a whole bunch of good stuff in a bowl topped with more good stuff. Today we are talking whole grains, lean proteins, tons of veggies, nuts, seeds, and dressings! Some people call power bowls buddha bowls or meal prep bowls. Whatever you call it, let's break it all down so you can make the best meal prep bowl for your week!
Really the main goal of a power bowl recipe is to eat as many colors and nutrient dense foods as possible. No two buddha bowls have to be the same, so tailor your bowl to your taste preferences and get creative! Words of wisdom- when in doubt, if it’s a whole food, add it to your bowl.
