Holiday Week Go-To

PLANT-POWERED VITALITY BOWL


Christmas week can get busy, quick. Blink, and it’s gone! Vitality Bowls are my go-to holiday meal that are quick, easy, and most importantly, packed with whole-food plant based nutrients. Crank up the Christmas music and customize your Vitality Bowl with whatever is in your fridge.  

They are simple to make and can be served cold or warm. Plus, you can use ingredients that are already in your refrigerator.

Imagine a mix of whole grains, such as warm wild rice or quinoa, tossed with chopped kale or arugula. Add in veggies higher in carbs, such as bell peppers, or corn and fresh tomatoes. 

The next step is to add protein… black beans, eggs, roasted chicken, or sunflower seeds. Then it’s all tossed with a flavor-packed sauce or a splash of dressing, such as balsamic vinegar or tahini sauce.

My favorite bowl includes chickpea, quinoa, arugula, red cabbage, tomato, and guacamole.

To create your own plant-powered vitality bowl, choose 1-2 items from each of the circles below.
