Mediterranean Nourish Bowl

February 25, 2018

As you already know from a few of my recent blog posts, I'm obsessed with the Nourish Bowls cook book. It contains tons of perfectly balanced and delicious meals that are pretty easy to assemble.  I usually pick a recipe or two and assemble a few bowls on Sunday so I have them to grab and go for lunch during the week.

 

This week, I decided to try and put together my own nourish bowl based on the guidelines in the cook book.  I went the Mediterranean route, because we recently decided to stick to the Mediterranean diet as much as possible.  I love having a balanced, filling lunch to give me the boost I need to power through an afternoon at work!  This bowl is delicious and filled with all my favorite things, which gives me something to look forward to all morning.

 

 

These are the categories my nourish bowl needed to include, and the ingredients I chose for each:

 

Protein

25% of Bowl

In this bowl I used:

Feta & Chicken

 

Vegetables

30% of Bowl

In this bowl I used:

Cucumbers

Onions

 

Leafy Greens

10% of Bowl

In this bowl I used:

Complex Carbs

25% Of Bowl

In this bowl I used:

Healthy Fats

10% of Bowl

Toppings and Dressings

These bowls were soooo easy to throw together! I even made a few for my husband (without onions since he can't stand them.)  Now I'll have a nice healthy and filling option for lunch every day, and I won't have to stress in the morning trying to throw something together last minute.
