In this generation of Instagram foodies, there has been a strong focus on food that is healthy, but also looks great. After all, if you're going to share images of your food, you want it to taste as good as it looks, right? Well… okay, the concept does seem a little silly. But, regardless of what you think the trend towards pretty food, you have to admit, the food itself can be pretty amazing.
One of the newest entries to this trend is power bowls and these come in all shapes and sizes.
Basically, power bowls are basically a combination of protein, whole grains and vegetables, served in a bowl. Essentially, this is a more interesting way to get a filling meal that is packed with nutrients. Putting the whole thing in a bowl might seem a bit weird, but doing this does make it easier to add dressing or just mix it up.
So, have a look at this selection of power bowls. Personally, I think they look amazing.
31. Nourishing Power Bowl
This power bowl comes from createnourishlove.com and it's a great example of the difference between power bowls and salads. For one thing, power bowls will often taste better and they also tend to be much more filling. With this bowl, you get protein from the cooked chickpeas, while you are also getting lots of nutrients and healthy fats from the other ingredients. This is a great option if you like the idea of salads but find that they simply do not fill you up.
30. Vegan Burrito Bowl
This power bowl is a little bit different because it gets inspiration from a burrito and also manages to be a vegan option. I particularly love the way this one looks in the bowl and the choice of ingredients works together well. It is worth noting that this bowl is a bit different than most in that some of the ingredients are actually cooked. Information about all of the ingredients and steps for this bowl can be found at hungryhealthyhappy.com.
29. Spicy Salmon Sushi Bowl
This power bowl is from heathercristo.com and, as you can see, it gets inspiration from sushi. This bowl relies on rice to bulk it up and as an energy source, so it has fewer ingredients overall. But, that doesn't stop it from being a good option, especially if you aren't interested in other types of power bowls.
28. Chipotle-Inspired Vegan Burrito Bowl
Here's another power bowl that gets its inspiration from Mexican food. But, at the same time, the bowl still contains many of the same components that you find in other power bowls. For example, the tofu in the bowls acts as a source of protein, while the avocado is a source of healthy fats. The combination of flavors in the bowl is also pretty fun and perfect for anyone who is a fan of Mexican food. You can find all of the details at karalydon.com.
