When you think about superfoods, you probably think about juicing, powders, capsules, and smoothies. You probably don’t think about actual food bowls that are full of the superfoods you need in a day. If you are trying to have a well-balanced and solid meal, you can choose to go with a superfood bowl. These bowls contain three or more superfoods to create a full meal with a medium to low caloric intake and high nutrient output. If you have never tried a superfood bowl, consider these three bowls to get started.
Super Packed Breakfast Bowls
You may be under the misconception that the only type of superfood bowls available is for dinner or lunch. The truth is, you can incorporate superfood food bowls into your morning routine. Use traditional rolled oats in an overnight oats recipe as the base for your bowl. Add a cup full of mixed nuts such as walnuts and almonds. Add one cup of berries that are suitable for your goals. For example, blueberries are ideal for memory boosting and anti-aging goals. To finish off your bowl you can add chia seeds or Greek yogurt and honey.
Sprouting Superfood Bowls
One of the leading superfoods that most people try to incorporate into their routine is sprouts. Sprouts are easy to grow yourself and easy to find at most farmer’s markets and health food stores. You can use various forms of bean sprouts mixed with chia seeds, leafy greens, nuts, and ginger or fruit-based dressing. These superfood bowls are ideal for lunch or very light dinner if you are short on time or just need to pack in the nutrients and not calories. If the sprouts are not enough, add some heft to the bowls by adding cubed sweet potatoes or quinoa.
Avocado Smoothie Bowl
If you like the feel and taste of various soups, then an avocado smoothie bowl may be an ideal way to get superfood food bowls into your daily eating routine. These bowls are incredibly easy to make and can incorporate more food than you think. Start off with an avocado and a little olive oil in a blender. Mix them until creamy then add kale, chia seeds, or Greek yogurt. You can heat this mixture and serve as a soup with sprouts, nuts, or both on top to finish them off. This is an ideal superfood food bowl for colder months when soups and stews are a welcome change.
If you are concerned about how to incorporate these superfood food bowls properly, remember that most of the vegetables or fruits can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. There may be some nutrient loss, but it will be small and unnoticeable if you are on a healthy superfood routine and exercise plan.
