The possibilities are endless when creating your bowls.
A few tips to keep in mind:
- Use fresh ingredients.
- Buy organic, if possible.
- Always start with a green base. These can include leafy greens, spinach, lettuce or kale.
- Add in your veggies: cucumbers, green beans, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, or zucchini.
- Pack in your protein: we like boiled eggs, salmon, beef, chick peas, quinoa and chicken.
- Make sure to include healthy fats which are incredibly helpful for growing curly hair and scalp health: avocado, seeds, nuts, olive oil, tahini, coconut oil, and our personal favorite- cheese! Cheese should be enjoyed in moderation. Experiment with different cheese types, such as feta or cheddar. Grilled halloumi is a treat!
- Complex carbohydrates should also be included. These can come from sweet potatoes, peas, corn, or brown rice.
