• I first heard about Nourish Bowls over on artist Lauren Fowler’s Instagram and that sent me to Pinterest and then to some other websites and now i’m sold! They’re a fancy term for salad bowls crammed with good-for-you foods. I found a great website called Nutrition Stripped and this post really explains what they’re about beautifully. In a nutshell, a nourish bowl has a range of nutrient dense veggies, fruits/carbohydrates, healthy fats, and quality proteins. This is a fabulous way to ensure you’re getting a dose of health for at least one meal – and if your’e strapped for time you can pre-prepare by chopping and roasting veggies, boiling eggs, washing leaves, making your hummus and grilling your proteins ahead of time.

    Here’s the list of ideal nourish bowl ingredients from Nutrition Stripped:

    Greens | spinach, romaine, arugula, kale, micro greens, sprouts, mustard greens, swiss chard, etc. 

    Proteins | tempeh, beans, quinoa and lentils (starchy-proteins), hemp seeds, nuts/seeds, nutritional yeast (not a “protein”, but loaded with plant-based protein). Vegetarian friendly (ovo-, pesca-, lacto-): farm fresh eggs and wild-caught fish. Animal proteins: quality sources only.

    Healthy fats | avocado, olive oil, olives, nuts, seeds, hemp seeds, grapeseed oil, sesame oil, truffle oil

    Veggies | carrots, bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, snap peas, peas, radish, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower; any and all veggies you enjoy!

    Carbohydrates | sweet potatoes, quinoa, millet, brown rice, wild rice, beans (starchy-protein), corn and peas  (starchy veggie).

    »Fruits: strawberries, pears, banana, papaya, mango, grapes, raspberries, apples, etc.

    Add-ons | fermented veggies like kim chi or sauerkraut, homemade salad dressings [try my favorite Sweet Tahini Drizzle], kelp/dulse granules and flakes for added iodine and minerals, nutritional yeast, homemade hummus, apple cider vinegar (a must!), fresh lemon juice

    Dressings | my favorite is 2 tablespoons hummus + 2-4 tablespoon apple cider vinegar + 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast = a super thick and creamy dressing.

    **BONUS recipe // take my Nourishing Nut & Seed Bread, cut into cubes, toast until crunchy and golden brown = gluten free/vegan friendly salad croutons!
