As the weather continues to get warmer and gardens start to produce fruits and vegetables, you may feel more motivated to find and try new healthy recipes. Fruits and vegetables are not only delicious but super important for your health, so why not put a variety of these great tasting powerfoods into a bowl? Buddha bowls, also known as power bowls, are essentially simple, one-bowl meals that are typically vegetarian or vegan and that include a grain, different proteins, and fresh vegetables.
You can incorporate endless variations of flavours and foods into these bowls, whether that be rice, couscous, potatoes, beans, chickpeas, tofu, lentils, meat, fish, seeds, nuts, roasted veggies, and different kinds of dressings such as hummus, guacamole, peanut butter sauce and more! Adding EarthFresh potatoes can boost your bowls with extra protein, vitamins and fibre. You will leave feeling satisfied, full and ready to power through the rest of the day.
If you aren’t keen on the Buddha bowl idea, there are other ways to incorporate healthy nutrients into your diet. Try this EarthFresh summer favourite: BBQ grilled potatoes and mixed vegetables. This healthy, gluten-free, and full of nutrients recipe is the perfect powerhouse meal alternative on a summer day. Be creative this summer and spice up your meals with healthy power Foods!
Half Your Plate is an initiative lead by the Canadian Produce Marketing Association, in partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Public Health Association and the Canadian Cancer Society to improve the consumption levels of fruits and vegetables in Canada.
