Nourish Bowl

With the weather warming up and fresh seasonal vegetables are readily available, a great way to spruce up your lunch (or dinner!) is with a “bowl” of nutrition.

Today’s recipe uses the concept of nourish bowls, a bowl of nutrient dense foods in the form of proteins, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. This bowl can be filled with any vegetable, protein and grain of your choice! Using leftover rice, chicken, shrimp, canned beans, and fresh vegetables and spices, this meal is sure to please!
