The world of bowls

Take out your bowls, prepare your taste buds and let yourself be inspired by these increasingly popular culinary trends. Poke, Buddha and smoothie, just to name a few, there is something for everyone! Rich in fibre and protein, these bowls are not only easy to make, but they definitely make excellent balanced meals.

Poke bowlundefined

Originally from Hawaii, the poke bowl is a mixture of several healthy and tasty ingredients. To the delight of raw fish lovers, it contains mainly raw tuna marinated in a soy and sesame oil-based sauce, but many prefer to replace it with fresh salmon or even cooked shrimp. Then, we complete with ginger, avocado, brown or round sushi rice, sesame seeds, fruits (e.g. mango), vegetables (e.g. cucumber, radish) all cut into small pieces since poke means « dice ». For a preparation time of fewer than 30 minutes, you get a complete meal in a bowl!

Buddha bowl

Also known as the "dragon bowl", it is a must in vegetarian and even vegan cuisine, depending on the recipe. Without limiting oneself, these bowls feature vegetables such as kale and carrots. We add avocado, whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc.) and vegetable proteins (grilled marinated tofu, tempeh, edamame, legumes, etc.) as well as the famous vinaigrette, which contributes to the irresistible charm of these bowls. The recipes being very versatile, I suggest this version from a NutriSimple nutritionist (image from the column).


Smoothie bowl

This undefined ultra-vitaminized, gold-coloured bowl will help you fill up on antioxidants. Made from fresh fruit mixed with a liquid (yogurt, cow's milk or vegetable drink) and spices to enhance the taste (cinnamon, cardamom, etc.), we serve the mixture in a bowl and garnish it according to our preferences: slivered almonds, seeds (chia, pumpkin, hemp, etc.), raw cocoa, fresh or dried fruit. In short, be creative!

You can also add nut butter or vegetable protein powder to improve your protein intake. Here I share two recipes whipped up by NutriSimple nutritionists:
