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.
