Feast on This: Power Bowls!

Posted by

We’re not sure when power bowls became a trend, but there’s no denying that they’re having a moment. And we get why: they can be simple to make and feature tons of healthy ingredients while allowing you to control portion sizes.

However, just like you do with salads, it’s important to ensure that all ingredients are worth consuming. Stick with protein-centric items such as eggs, grilled meats, nuts, cheese, and tofu. Refrain from fatty dressings or overdoing it with the add-ons or you’ll turn a healthy power bowl into a calorie bomb. Give these delicious options a taste test …

Sweet Chorizo Hash with Eggs and Guac

This breakfast power bowl has more than 20 grams of protein and 30 grams of carbs for early-morning energy. Additionally, research suggests that eating breakfast can improve memory and lower the risk of diabetes.

Ingredients:

5 ounces of chorizo

Sweet potato, diced

1.5-2 cups diced onions

2-3 eggs

Guac

Salt & pepper

Make it:

Sauté chorizo in a pan over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes, onions, salt and pepper. Stir. Cook for about 3 minutes or until sweet potatoes have a crisp crust (give or take 5 minutes). Fry eggs in a separate pan, put everything in a bowl, add guac and hot sauce, and consume rapidly!

Greek Chicken Bowl

Along with chicken, a well-known muscle builder, this bowl uses the ancient grain farro instead of rice. For one, farro has more protein than brown rice (8 grams per cup compared to 5), and more fiber than brown rice or quinoa.

Ingredients:

Farro

Olives

Lemon juice

Garlic clove, minced

Paprika

Sliced rotisserie chicken

2 red peppers, diced

1 cucumber, diced

Cherry tomatoes, halved

Feta cheese (crumbled)

Walnuts

Make it:

Add 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add farro, up the heat, and stir often. When grains are darkened add about 3 cups of water and bring to a boil then reduce heat to low. Let simmer for about 20 minutes. Drain water.

In a blender, mix olives, 2 tablespoons water, lemon juice, and garlic. Add more oil or water if you need something to help the blending process.

Add farro to bowls in desired quantities, top with chicken, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, feta, walnuts, and olive sauce. Serve.
