I believe when transitioning to a more plant based diet, its best to have easy recipes on deck that you can cook up & not have to be stressed on what to eat. This bowl is super clutch for that.
Bowls are versatile & you can mix/match to your liking. Great source of plantbased protein, fiber & will have your energy levels high. A great recipe for beginner culinarians.
