This isn’t as much as a recipe as it is a method; but I still wanted to share this with you. It has been my absolute favourite meal to make for dinner lately because it is so easy and combines such a variety of my favourite foods.
It is a nutrient-packed bowl full of tastiness and health. You get all your nutrients in the dark leafy greens (spinach, romaine, etc), then tons of protein from the tofu.
Feel free to change up some ingredients if you are not fond of them, and change some things around if you like.
- Base=spinach and romaine
- Firm tofu
- Jasmine rice
- Sweet corn
- Cherry tomatoes
- Sweet potato
- Lemon-tahini dressing
- Feel free to also add: lentils, beans, tempeh, beets, kale, kimchi, steamed veg, broccoli, carrot, edmame, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries
- Prep all of your ingredients and throw them into a bowl! Top with your favourite dressing, such as raspberry vinaigrette or lemon tahini.
- A well-balanced macro bowl should generally consist of 1/3 grains (try brown rice, millet, quinoa, or couscous), nearly 1/2 mixed vegetables (maybe sweet potatoes, broccoli, and onions), almost 1/5 protein (like beans, tempeh, or tofu), and finally a bit of fermented foods (such as sauerkraut, miso paste, or pickled vegetables with active probiotics).
