How to Build a Nourishing Bowl
I love building a nourishing bowl for any type of meal. It’s a great meal prep option because you can roast veggies, dice veggies, and prepare your proteins ahead of time and have nourishing meals all week long! Meal prep bowls for the win! This guide on How to Build a Nourishing Bowl is my staple list of how I build a perfect bowl! Made in partnership with Farmhouse Culture.
I am so excited to partner with my friends at Farmhouse Culture for today’s infographic! Their Kimchi and Fermented Vegetables are a staple in my fridge, and are a go-to when adding some extra probiotics and nutrients to a meal, that are especially great for digestion! All of their products are paleo-friendly, Whole 30-compliant, naturally fermented, made with all organic ingredients and without any added sugars!
