New Year, New (Vegan) Food!

New Year, New (Vegan) Food!

We are back! Happy New Year to everyone, we hope you had a great holiday! To kick things off this year we wanted to feature a few of our new healthy vegan (and non-vegan) bowls, for those of you who’s resolutions are based around trying to eat healthier!

 

Vegan Buddha Bowl

Composed of rice, spinach, cherry tomatoes, black olives, cucumbers, peppers, and hummus; this bowl is delicious! The Buddha bowl’s name comes from the importance of spiritual and dietary balance. The Buddha bowl has a thousand different variations, but the skeleton of the recipe is creating a nourishing meal that has many small portions of various types of food (vegetables, rice, beans etc.) in one small bowl. Balance is a huge part of spiritual life, so having balance in our diet is important. You can’t have a healthy balanced life if you are eating too much or too little.

 

Vegan Burrito Bowl

Rice, black beans, corn, cherry tomatoes, peppers, avocado, and salsa; this bowl is a tasty alternative to getting a hearty carb filled burrito. The vegan burrito bowl is a cleaner version of the typical burrito bowl you can get at fast food chains. This bowl eliminates the use of excess sodium and poor-quality cooking oils, that are a large cause of weight gain and digestive issues. Black beans give this bowl the boost of protein your body needs without the added meat and dairy.

 

If you’re not a vegan-food fan, you can also add other proteins to these bowls, like chicken, salmon, or shrimp.

 

Healthy Chicken Salad Bowl

Seasoned chicken breast, avocado, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and heritage greens make up this healthy bowl for meat-eaters that makes a really awesome light lunch. The chicken is roasted in the oven with just the right amount of spices so you’re not consuming any unwanted oils like with grilled or fried chicken. Or you can substitute the chicken with wild pacific salmon or shrimp to make it extra-special.

 

For those that have made a resolution this year to eat healthier, these bowls are an easy way to start! Ask us about them today at info@gourmetlunchladies.com
