Build Your Own Healthy Meal Plan with Macro Bowls
The first step to healthy habits is to start simple. Simple ingredients, simple recipes, and focus on fresh and natural food. A macro bowl hits all the sweet spots, and the best part is the customization that comes with it. These colorful bowls are packed with the good stuff, and it’s not complicated at all to make.
What is a Macro Bowl?
The concept of a macro bowl is simple: you use whole foods and portion them to provide all the nutrients you will need. The term “macro” comes from the macro nutrients: healthy fats, protein, and carbohydrates. Carbohydrates include whole grains and sweet potato. Protein will come from eggs, lentils, or tofu. Healthy fats can come from avocado, nuts, or dressings. It’s all about mixing and matching ingredients together with whatever flavor profile you like.
