My favourite fancy bowl combinations

I love fancy bowls! They are colourful, yummy, nutritious and so simple to prepare, especially if you food prep like I do. Here are my favourite ingredients to get you inspired, but really, you can make your own version of these by combining your choice of:

grain + protein + greens/raw veggies + cooked veggies + sauce

The possibilities are endless! I love that most of these things can be prepared ahead of time giving you a chance to take a break from cooking while still having an amazing meal. Also, if you prepare different ingredients, you can turn your meal into a DIY bowl where everyone can choose what they want to eat. Perfect and fun! Finally, this is the perfect option if you are on a cooking rut: this will keep you statisfied until you find something even more exciting! Let me know what your favourite fancy bowl is! Cheers!
