DIY Macro-Bowls

IMG_2491

Hi babes!

This is my most recent favourite bowl to make because it is super easy to throw together healthy, delish & there are just so many options! It is plant based and the combination of the ingredients make you feel amazing! Heres a little info on why these macro-bowls rock:

What is a Macro-Nutrient?  Macro-Nutrients are nutrients that are needed in large amounts are by our bodies to function optimally. There are three macronutrients required by humans: carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. This bowl combines all 3 of those, making you feel full & happy!

When making a Macro-Nutrient bowl:

Veggies should make up about 60% of the bowl. 

Whole grains should make up about 30% of the bowl.

Beans, soy protein or sea vegetables should make up about 10% of the bowl.
