Somewhere in between spending $13 on salads and saying fuck it i’ll just have cheese and wine- I conclude that I inevitably ask myself every night “what is for dinner”. I finally came up with a solution- this bowl.  It’s perfect because you can change of the ingredients and it cover all of the food groups while still being super satisfying, nourishing and inexpensive.  My checking account owes me a big thank you for this little bowl. I used to cook dinners for myself, following elaborate recipes but it got so frustrating because I would end up spending 25 dollars on ingredients and I don’t want to eat left overs all week.  

Healthy Dinner For One1} 1} Pick a carb.  Whether it’s frozen rice, quinoa or in my case potatoes – start your bowl off with a carby base.  Don’t cop on on the carbs- your late night munchies will kick in if you do. When cooking for one – make a batch of grains ahead of time so you have them all week! 

2} Add your protein.  Hard boiled eggs will always be my go-to.  But keeping tempeh, tofu, pre-cooked shrimp, or buy a 6 ounce piece of salmon for a simple delish option.

3} Add an avocado. Always. On everything. 

4} Veg that shit up. Whatever produce you buy that week- add it to your dinner.  I made these delicious mustard apple brussels in less then 30 minutes and the left overs are for lunch. Recipe below.

5} Get saucy.  Add tahini, lime juice, Siracha whatever you see fitting to your bowl for a little pizzazz. You will never get sick of these bowls- I promise.
