Bowl Meal Inspo

If you’re a follower on insta as well, you’ve seen my lunch bowls. And let me tell y’all, I’m in love with building bowls like this for lunch.

The main idea behind the bowl meals is that they include all three macronutrients, carbs, protein and fat–that’s why they’re often called macro bowls. But in my opinion, the best part of the bowl meal is that it’s super customizable and can work with any type of diet. I’ve made vegan bowls, paleo bowls, vegetarian bowls and even ones with tons of meat. You can really do whatever you want with it.

Whether you call them power bowls, macro bowls or, “goddam bowls” as my brother once has, here’s some inspo for making them!

Vegan salad bowl

This bowl was vegan but totally filling and delicious anyways! I used romaine lettuce for the base, then added green beans sautéed with tahini, sweet potato fries, roasted peppers and tomatoes and avocado. And topped it with sriracha of course.

Sweet potato & egg bowl

Sweet potatoes and brussels sprouts roasted in olive oil topped with avocado, a fried egg, my tahini dressing and some sesame seeds to add texture. I can not recommend enough frying the egg so the edges get crispy.

Turkey meatball bowl

Super delicious high protein bowl, with butternut squash, brussels sprouts and turkey meatballs, topped with Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning. This would also be awesome with avocado, by the way. Meatball recipe from Alex Agasar (Eat Your Heart Out) here.

If you’re stuck in a rut with your food, try one of these bowls–I wish I could eat like this in the dining hall.
