Iโ€™m getting into the grain bowl dishes.ย  What can be better than a power food dish that is made pretty much in one bowl?ย  Itโ€™s not only good but itโ€™s also nutritious for you too.

The one thing I love about a grain bowl is because you can really add in anything you like.ย  This is my version of one kind of grain bowl. ย  And I think the dressing you add makes the dish as well.ย  Otherwise I think itโ€™s a little dry.

Good tuna or other protein, colorful greens, vegetables and a good grain make up for a good bowl.ย  Some varieties of what I think are good grains:ย  brown rice, quinoa, barley, bulgur and farro.ย  I use rice and quinoa probably the most, but bulgur is very good too.ย  Also, donโ€™t forget the greens, such as, spinach and kale.ย  And the vegetables are endless.ย  So go for it.

Give a grain bowl a try.ย  Itโ€™s easy to make and the only thing that takes the most time is chopping or cutting up the vegetables.ย ย 

 

I know Iโ€™m going to make this or other grain bowl often.ย ย ย
