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.
