Brown rice, red quinoa, turmeric sweet potatoes, lightly dressed arugula, a poached egg, pistachios, and lemon herb dressing.
This is The Bowl Life.
When did this concept of bowls come on the scene, anyway" All is know is that sometime between maybe last year and this very moment I’ve become completely obsessed with the idea and practice of piling a bunch of foods in a bowl and calling it all fun bowl names. Oooh I know let’s have Bangkok Curry Bowls tonight! or omgosh SO CRAVING a Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl! or Netflix + Healing Bowls tonight, for sure.
I feel like it’s the millennial version of the casserole.
The only thing about bowls is that how do you make them if you are feeding a crowd" crowd as in family" I mean, I think you just make everything separately and let people kind of build their own bowls" Maybe" I only feed two people in my family so I’m not sure how these things work. Are bowls are sort of limiting in terms of who they’re practical for" Tell me what you think, wise readers who have families larger than two people.
In the meantime, all of us Cooking For One or Two peeps shall be over here assembling and devouring bowls bowls bowls more bowlssss! And I shall be working on creating a category on POY for Bowls, because I just went to categorize this recipe and it is not a salad, friends. Not a salad at all.
The Healing Bowl situation today is epically beautiful and nutritious.
GET A LOAD OF THIS.

We’re whirring up an addicting batch of lemon herb dressing in about 5 seconds flat THANK U BLENDER.
We’re throwing some cooked brown rice and red quinoa in the bowl and feeling a moment of intense gratitude for the time-saving product that is bulk packages of Seeds of Chang...
