Power bowls are the latest big thing in the foodie world--we now see smoothie bowls, breakfast bowls, Buddha bowls, macro bowls, poke bowls, quinoa bowls, and flex bowls on upmarket menus and health blogs alike. So what is the appeal? A substantial part is linked to macrobiotics, the idea that fresh, unprocessed local produce is always the tastiest and healthiest, and that a varied combination of food groups will give you the perfect balance of nutrients.
The 50 bowls in Bountiful Bowls focus on breakfast bowls, savory snacks and lunch bowls, salad bowls, main meals in a bowl, and dessert bowls, each one with a clear emphasis on fruit, vegetables, beans, or alternative sources of protein. The bowls are often colorful and visually appealing, based on bright natural colors and appetizing texture--crisp red bell peppers, deep red tomatoes, crunchy pale green salad leaves, blanched red-rimmed circles of radish, the lush purple of beets, small blocks of feta, or the inviting oranges, yellows, and greens of split peas or lentils. So it's time to embrace the bowl in all its glory, with dishes such as Beet and Pomegranate Smoothie Bowl, Crunchy Noodle Beanfeast, Grilled Chicken and Slaw Bowl, Veggie Burger Bowl, and Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl.
