Power Bowls at Home!

From breakfast hashes to taco salads, from poke to açai, the meal-in-a-bowl trend seems to be one that’s here to stay! Bowls are quick to put together, convenient to take on-the-go and easy to pack in extra nutrients. While they have become popular options at restaurants, they’re also simple to prepare at home. Today, I had the chance to join WFLA in Tampa to show viewers a few reasons to incorporate bowls into their daily meal prep and Superfoods that pack a big punch when included in your bowl!

 Reasons you should ramp up our healthy lifestyles with Superfood bowls:

  • Having a diet high in vitamins, minerals and protein has a positive impact on the amount of energy you have throughout the day, promoting clearer thinking, and impacting your mood overall, and allowing you to have a better quality of life!
  • Bowls are a simple way to have a diet high in nutrients when you include delicious Superfoods.

Here are some awesome Superfoods: 

    • Whole grains. Eating more whole grains may help you live longer by reducing your risk of cancer and heart disease. Try one new-to-you grain, such as quinoa or wild rice, each week.
    • Leafy greens. Dark greens like spinach and kale are an excellent source of nutrients including folate, zinc, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin C and fiber. They also make your bowl more filling!
    • Sweet Potato. A root vegetable loaded with potassium, fiber and vitamins A and C, which is also a good source of carotenoids, an antioxidant that may reduce your risk of certain types of cancer. They add a delicious, sweet flavor to a savory bowl.
    • Protein. Foods high in protein reduce hunger levels, increase strength, boost the metabolism, lower blood pressure and help maintain weight loss.

  • 1 pack of Expresco Chicken Skewers
  • 1 cup farro
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  1. Add bone broth powder to a medium pot with about 16oz of water. Bring to a boil. Stir in farro, cover and reduce heat to a simmer until farro is tender and the broth is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. Start assembling bowls by placing the farro in each. Add tomatoes and arugula.
