"This bowl is so simple, can be easily modified, and is the perfect combination of protein, fat, fiber, and greens that will keep you fueled and satisfied. To meal prep the Bella Bowl, prepare veggies ahead of time and separately package the greens, dressing, protein, and any toppings."
How to Make It
Pick your greens - I have been opting for organic mixed greens lately, but kale and spinach are also a great choice! Toss your greens in olive oil and lemon or balsamic vinegar and add s&p to taste. If I am craving something warm, I will change it up and sauté my greens instead!
Pick your veggies - I like to choose one starchy and one non-starchy veggie. My go to’s are sweet potato and broccolini. I chop them up into bite-sized pieced and toss both in olive oil, chopped garlic, crushed red pepper, and s&p and roast in the oven at 350 F (broccolini for 10 minutes, sweet potato for 20).
Pick your protein (optional) - When it comes to protein, use whatever lean protein you feel like! I love putting a fried egg on top of this bowl because the yolk tastes so yummy when mixed in with everything. To make my egg, I use a small pan so that they fry into a perfectly round shape. Heat up the pan on the stove, and once it is hot, slightly grease with grass-fed butter. Cook eggs entirely on one side and season with black pepper. When they are almost done cooking on one side, flip over for just a second so that they slightly cook on the other side.
Additional toppings (optional) - nuts, seeds, fresh herbs, avocado! The world is your oyster!!!!
