Macro Bowl with Spicy Sesame Ginger Dressing
Hello & Happy Monday!!
Before I go into explaining this straight forward recipe, let me just start by saying that I have never made a “macro bowl” ..ever lol
Don’t get me wrong, I love to get my veggies, but like others who are plant based or not, I struggle to be able to get my daily recommended intake. (truth)
When I was a raw vegan, my whole life was literally one big macro bowl lol
(ask anyone who knew me in 2008, I would eat an entire stalk of broccoli and cucumber for lunch)
Today, I have more balance and feel that we can all (myself included) get more veggies in our life without it having to be such an obstacle..
So I decided to give the whole bowl idea a whirl and mix together an effortless dressing and just “hope for the best“.
Whether it was the avocado (#can’tlivewithout) or the fact that this dressing was so effortless and complimented the massive amount of veggies is hard to discern..
What I can say is that this combination far exceeded my expectations and will make the idea of consuming raw veggies less of a chore…
The perfect approach to embracing a raw meal if..
You’re crammed for time
Need to make healthy eats in advance
You’re craving some vital nutrients
Simply have an abundance of produce that you’re not sure what do do with!
If you find that a plethora of plants and some rice still leaves you hungry and not satisfied, add some complex carbs by pairing this bowl with some whole wheat tortillas filling them with all the beautiful veggies!
