Bowls are now really in

The right mix for energy and good mood

Some of you have certainly tried the one or other "Bowl", because many stores or "in" restaurants, especially in larger cities, are currently focusing on the attractive mix of salad, carbohydrates, protein and creative toppings.

Since a number of ingredients are needed for the Bowls, some people don't dare to try them. But with the right orga on the shopping list and in the refrigerator, the bowl concept is sure to work.

The bowl is filled with salads, topped with carbohydrates such as steamed sweet potatoes and proteins, e.g. a boiled egg, topped with delicacies such as yoghurt sauce or hummus - so you have everything in one. That's not only delicious, but also looks super appetizing.

First of all: For bowls you always need a number of ingredients at home - you don't have to follow a stubborn plan, but can combine freely depending on your appetite. In any case, you need some basics in the fridge. If you want to integrate the Bowl concept into your daily meal plan, you should make sure to wrestling a few salads and vegetables such as onions, peppers, zucchini or radishes when you do your weekly shopping.

On Youtube you can find many Bowl recipes from food influencers, where you can get inspired. The well-known influencer Pamela Reif, for example, wrote the cookbook "You Deserve This: Simple & natural recipes for a healthy lifestyle. Bowl cookbook", in which you can find many recipes
