The best easy macro bowl recipe

When I first started this blog (remember when she was “Grace in the Crumbs”), J used to joke that it should be called “what Katy’s eating for lunch”. And I think he was kind of right.

What I share here, is what I actually eat. And usually ALL of it.

I’m a big believer in eating really really well. Food is sort of a love language for me. Especially the food I make for myself. It matters.

And yet, so often we don’t treat it as importantly as we should.

We spend so much time worrying about feeding our kids and our families. But we don’t always give the same care to our food. Espeically during busy days.

I never used to sit and eat lunch (always telling myself I didn’t have “time”), and a few years ago that all changed. Now I SAVOR this sacred time. And I make myself something yummy, and nourishing, like this easy macro bowl recipe almost daily. It makes me feel loved, and well cared for. Even if it’s just for me.

BOWLS are my favorite types of lunches. Especially easy macro bowl recipes like this. A macro bowl is essentially a meal made up of all the macronutrients our body needs, carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats.

Esentally creating a really hearty & nourishing meal that gives your body all the energy and fuel it needs to work at it’s best. When you’re making up your own macro bowl, play around. Don’t be afraid to mix it up.

This easy macro bowl recipe is one of my go-to’s. I usually just grab whatever I have on hand. Some cut-up veggies, a cooked grain, something pickled and tart, some type of fat like avocado, egg or salmon, sprouts, some seeds, and then I love a yummy spicy dressing. I used my spicy ginger lime dressing here.

For this easy macro bowl recipe I used quinoa, lentils, chickpeas, roasted sweet potatoes and cabbage. I love adding something fermented to my bowl too, like saurkeut or kimchi (this kimchi is realy great and can be found in most grocery stores). I didn’t have either hand, but I did have some pickled red onion (this is my go to recipe for easy pickled red onions) which really great too.

Easy macro bowl recipe

Prep Time :10 minutes
Cook Time :15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup washed and shredded kale
  • 1/2 cup of cooked quiona
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup of roasted sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup of drained and rinsed chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup shredded purple cabage

  • 1 tbsp of hemp seeds

  • To make the roasted sweetpotatoes, preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut your sweet potato up into small cubes (about 1/2 inch). Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt/pepper. Place in the oven and roast for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are golden.
  • Meanwhile cook your quinoa and lentils following the instrucions on the package (I like to make a large amount of both to keep on hand in the fridge for easy meal prep).
  • While your veggies/quinoa/lentals are cooking, prep the spicy ginger lime dressing following this recipe.
  • Next prep all your other veggies. Chop the kale (I like my kale sliced really thin), grate your carrots, drain and rinse your chickpeas, chop the cabage, and slice the radish. Now you're all ready to assemble!
  • To assemble the bowl, grab yourslef a really large bowl and add your kale. Drizzle it with just a toch of olive oil, a little salt, and give it a quick massage. Massaging the kale first make such a differnece. Now add your hot items, the cooked quoinia, lentils, sweet potatoes. Followed by your veggies. Arranfe however feels good to you. Top it off with half of an avocado, a few pickled onions, a sprinkle of hemp seeds and sprouts.
