Power Bowls are a great way to not only fill your body with nutrient dense foods, but also to use up some stuff that you have laying around in your fridge or pantry. They can be made a variety of ways using a variety of ingredients. Similar to a bowl you would create at chipotle, fresh kitchen, places like that. What makes it a “power bowl” is the combination of nutrient dense foods that will push you through your day or even your next Afterburn Workout.
To create a “Power Bowl” you start with a base and then add:
-Starchy carbohydrate/s (especially when you are working out in the gym, or if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding)
-Load it up with your favorite veggies!
-A serving of your favorite Protein
-Your favorite spices/paleo condiments.
and that is all! Super simple and can be made a bunch of different ways. For this recipe:
Veggies: Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower & Tomato Cucumber Salad
Protein: Your Favorite Burger
Healthy Fats: 1/2 Avocado
Spices: Everything but the Bagel
This combo is *chefs kiss* so darn good! It would be great after a workout, and if you wanted to add some extra carbohydrates you could add some diced roasted sweet potato.
Mediterranean Power Bowl
2 Cups Spinach
1 Cup Roasted Cauliflower tossed in buffalo sauce
1/2 Cup Chopped Cucumber Tomato Mix
1 Beef Burger, frozen is fine. (sub any other protein)
Trader Joes Everything but the bagel seasoning
- First, make the burger: preheat a skillet with a little coconut oil on medium heat and cook the burger from frozen for about 5-6 minutes a side, until cooked through.
- Assemble the rest of the bowl: start with the spinach on the bottom, then add the cauliflower, tomato-cucumber salad, and avocado.
- Once the burger is done, allow it to rest for a few minutes before cutting in – this way all the delicious juices won’t spill out!
- Once cut, throw the burger on your power bowl and top with everything but the bagel seasoning, and olives if you like!
