Food in bowls—you gotta love it. There’s just something so easy about an entire dinner layered into a single dish. As part of your meal prep, simmer a pot of whole grains over the weekend. Then use that as a blank canvas for leftovers, featuring whatever you’ve got kicking around in the fridge. Even on nights when you feel like you’d rather collapse than come up with something to eat for dinner, you can muster the strength to throw together a handful of healthy ingredients (promise). Plus, grain bowls pack like a dream, if you want to box up an extra portion for a not-so-sad desk lunch tomorrow.
The basic elements are easy: whole grains, lean protein, colorful veggies, you got it. But a grain bowl goes from tasty to transcendent when you really crush it with a combo of flavors and textures. Think crispy and crunchy accents and om-worthy drizzle sauces to bring it all together. Pro tip: It’s also never wrong to slide a sunny egg on top.
Ready to stick a fork in it? Here are eight healthy grain bowl recipes that are nourishing and delicious.
