The current food bowl trend offers plenty of convenient and healthy options for low-carb meals
Whether you’re dining out or cooking at home, the current food bowl trend should not be missed. Food bowls can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and suit a variety of dietary preferences because there are so many options to choose from. Consider cooking up some healthy food bowl recipes for a new take on tasty low-carb meals, and read on to learn why food bowls are so great.
Focus on Nutrition
Each ingredient in a food bowl offers some form of nutritional benefit such as nutrients, vitamins, minerals, proteins, and healthy fats with the final product being a bowl of balanced goodness.
Make Healthy Food More Accessible
The current trend in food bowls means that more food bowls are popping up on menus at restaurants. Instead of eating high-fat, high-carb take-out meals, food bowls offer a healthier option. When there are more healthy options, people might think twice about what they eat and make better food choices.
You can customize food bowls to meet your needs whether you’re on a vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free, or low-carb diet. You can get creative when making your own food bowls, filling them with whatever tasty and nutritious ingredients you like.
Are Easy to Make
All you need is a base, toppings and optional seasonings. The bowl could include riced cauliflower, zucchini noodles, or any other vegetables for the base. Also, it can contain sliced up toppings such as vegetables, herbs, and protein (i.e. meat, eggs, tofu, lentils, and tempeh). If you want extra zest in your bowl, add garlic, lemon juice, and/or apple cider vinegar, or opt for food bowls with a broth.
Are a Simple Lunch Option
You can eat satisfying food bowls for lunch every day. All you have to do is prepare them ahead of time. Fill reusable food storage containers with any ingredients you’d like, stick them in the fridge, and you’re set with lunch for the week. If you’re concerned about freshness, make two or three ahead of time and more in the middle of the week.
Plenty of Options for Low-Carb Meals
Food bowls can be crafted using only low-carb ingredients. For a low-carb food bowl, consider using alternatives to the traditional rice and noodles, such as riced cauliflower, zucchini noodles, and non-starchy vegetables.
Since food bowls inspire people to make healthy choices when dining out or cooking at home, this trend should not be ignored. Get creative and start eating these tasty, easy, and low-carb meals for a balanced and satisfying meal option.
