Lunch Bowls

We are kicking off this back-to-school time with easy, healthy and super tasty one bowl lunches, which are great to bring to work. The key to a great lunch bowl is to start with a great base, whether it’s brown rice, quinoa, a combo of the two, or greens.

If you’re looking for a lighter lunch, placing heartier ingredients like poached chicken or sweet potatoes over greens is a great option.
