The bowl to success – healthy and delicious food bowls
A healthy and balanced diet is a great thing. I always resolve to eat better - if only frozen pizza, kebab or pasta weren't so uncomplicated. Of course, cooking is fun and I'm happy every time my cooking experiments succeed, but to be honest: When I get home from work in the evening, I no longer see myself standing at the stove for hours. Healthy eating just has to fall by the wayside. Or? No! The excuse “healthy and balanced is so time-consuming and takes so long” no longer works. The reason for this goes by the name Food Bowl.
You're probably now wondering why the whole thing has to have an English name again and isn't simply called a bowl or a bowl. Firstly, food bowls simply sound more chic, secondly, the trend and thus the name comes from the USA and thirdly, food bowls are a very specific way of eating and serving. This is not just about the content, but also about the look. The nutritional trend focuses on a nutrient-rich, if possible vegan and gluten-free diet with organically grown ingredients. Flavor enhancers, colorings, additives and preservatives are taboo.
There are no limits to the contents of a food bowl when it comes to possible combinations. Fruit, vegetables, fish, superfoods, proteins, healthy fats, nutrient-rich carbohydrates, vitamins, raw, cooked, steamed, crispy, soft, fine in taste or intense, red, yellow, green, blue... Food bowls are a meal of superlatives. No matter which ingredients you choose, the structure always remains the same and works according to the modular principle. Fillers like rice, pasta, quinoa, oatmeal, etc. go at the bottom, followed by fruit and/or vegetables and toppings like nuts, herbs or berries. The bowl is crowned with the right sauce and everything is possible here, from yoghurt to dressing to hummus.
If you don't have a brilliant idea to get started in the food bowl world, you can simply be inspired by your favorite food. Unfortunately, spaghetti Bolognese with Parmesan served in a bowl is not a food bowl, but you can “recreate” it in a healthy and balanced version: To do this, replace the classic spaghetti with whole-wheat pasta, prepare the Bolognese with tofu and fresh tomatoes and grab it instead Simply add parmesan to a handful of chopped nuts. And you can easily do this with all sorts of ingredients: use coconut milk instead of cream, butter can easily be replaced with avocado, use quinoa instead of pasta, croutons become nuts... The possibilities are endless and can always be used for breakfast, lunch or dinner reassemble again. It really couldn't be healthier or more varied.
