Are you looking for some quick and easy meals that you can personalize with your favorite veggies and choice of protein, then you should checkout these 6 Easy Nourish Bowls!
If you haven’t heard of nourish bowls, you might have heard of them by another name like buddha bowls or macro bowls. Whichever name you prefer, they are basically a well balanced, healthy meal consisting of veggies, clean carbs, and protein. Once you have your bowl ingredients, you normally top with some type of dressing or sauce to bring it all together,
Why I love Nourish Bowls
You might be wondering what’s so special about nourish bowls, well check out all these reasons why I love them!
- Nourish Bowls are Versatile – you can make them in any flavor profile you want from hearty, spicy, Asian, Mexican, and more!
- Easy to Prep – nourish bowls are super easy to prep, just batch cook your favorite protein or use canned beans to make it even easier. Steam, roast, grill, or leave raw your veggies; batch cook some complex carbs like quinoa or sweet potatoes and then use your favorite dressing or sauce and bam – you’re done!
- Use Up Leftovers – do you have a hodgepodge of leftovers sitting in your fridge week after week? Create your own nourish bowl and come up with a totally new meal!
- Packable – perfect lunch or meal to pack and take with you. Make in a mason jar, Tupperware, thermos, or whatever you like!
As you can see, I have a bit of an addiction to nourish bowls, they are just so easy to make and you can pack so much flavor in them!
6 Easy Nourish Bowls
You might be wondering what classifies and easy nourish bowl. For me, it means that it doesn’t take a lot of time, it can be customized to the veggies and proteins I prefer, and it doesn’t take a lot of strange ingredients that require me to shop at all the fancy grocery stores, lol.
Amore Nourish Bowl
First up on our easy nourish bowl list is Epicure’s Amore Nourish Bowl. This easy nourish bowl has tons of Italian flavors, that’s amore (sorry, couldn’t resist, lol), of balsamic, mozzarella, garlic, and pasta.
There are less than 10 ingredients (really 6 with an optional 7th), takes only 10 minutes to make, AND uses leftovers. What if you don’t have leftovers, well, then I would opt for lentils or canned beans because they are quick and easy!
Pulled Chicken Nourish Bowl
This nourish bowl also uses leftovers, but I will say, you normally will have a lot of leftovers when you make Pulled Chicken unless you are feeding a crowd/large family. This nourish bowl has a bit of a Mexican flavor to me and I prefer to use black beans with this as well.
Epicure’s Pulled Chicken Nourish Bowl also comes together in just 10 minutes and only has 8 ingredients (including dressing) so super simple to make. You could totally swap out the grains for fresh corn when it is in season which would totally level up this dish! Fresh is best for maximum flavor!!
Goddess Nourish Bowl
Epicure’s Goddess Nourish Bowl is fit for a Goddess so make sure you try this one! This nourish bowl is vegan (if you are a hardcore carnivore, just swap the beans for your preferred protein) and could easily feed a crowd. There are so many yummy ingredients like Southern Baked sweet potatoes, quinoa, and Smoky Roasted Tomato Nutritional Yeast Topper.
This recipe comes together in just 5 minutes if you meal prepped earlier in the week or have leftovers to use up, otherwise it would come together in about 15-20 minutes, which is still pretty quick.
Miso Ginger Nourish Bowl
Epicure’s Miso Ginger Nourish Bowl is an on trend, Asian-inspired easy nourish bowl that will leave your tastebuds dancing! I love the classic Asian flavors of this nourish bowl of miso, ginger, and garlic – and if you like spice add some spicy peppers or Sriracha to kick it up a notch.
As you may have already figured, this has minimal ingredients, uses some already prepped beef tenderloin (or other protein) or leftovers which makes this dish come together in a handful of minutes.
Zen Nourish Bowl
Ok, I think I just might be more in love with the cool names of these nourish bowls than I am of their contents, lol. Epicure’s Zen Nourish Bowl won’t disappoint and will totally make you feel zen (well maybe not, but your tastebuds will totally thank you!).
According to the directions this recipe takes 30 minutes; however, I think it could totally come together quicker if you use already prepped rice or get some help from microwaveable rice (hey, sometimes a girl needs a little help in the kitchen).
This nourish bowl is vegan, but you could totally add beans, lentils, or meat to add more protein.
Popcorn Chicken Nourish Bowl
I think Epicure’s Popcorn Chicken Nourish Bowl would be a perfect introductory to nourish bowls for kids. The Popcorn Chicken is basically a healthier version of chicken nuggets which most kids love. If you are vegan or vegetarian just swap the chicken for firm tofu and you are good to go!
If you decide to make it for your kids, get them involved and let them pick their favorite veggies. I have found most kids get more adventurous with their food when they are helping to make it. You can also swap out the dressing for something you know your child already likes.
