Grain bowls are a fun and easily customizable dinner to make. Fast, versatile, and packed with nutrients, there are endless possibilities when it comes to your next meal-in-a-bowl. Also commonly referred to as Buddha bowls, they can be made with rice, quinoa, bulgur wheat, or even oats! Whether you’re looking for a sweet or savory option, here are 20 healthy grain bowl recipes for you to try out from me and some of my favorite food bloggers. Enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Which type of grain is healthiest?
Oats and quinoa are packed full of fiber as well as antioxidants and other vitamins! They’re also naturally gluten-free.
Are grain bowls good for weight loss?
If you pack it full of protein, then yes! Meals full of fiber and protein keep you feeling fuller for longer, so you’re inclined to eat less often and cut calories, helping you to lose weight.
What are the basics of a Buddha bowl?
Start with a base of a whole grain, like wild rice or quinoa, then pack on lots of fresh veggies, a plant or animal based protein, and maybe drizzle with a dressing or sauce.
