A spring macro bowl packed with seasonal spring veggies. Oil-free, gluten-free, and packed with plant protein! Perfect for meal prep lunches.
Happy Spring, friends!
It’s always that last stretch of winter that really feels the longest and the coldest, isn’t it?
The days are finally starting to feel longer and warmer and I’m dreaming about vacations and outdoor adventures and all of the seasonal green veggies.
This Spring Macro Bowl is the partial realization of those dreams (now where’s the beach and fruity drink?), and the culmination of all of my favorite spring veggies in one giant bowl.
Produce that’s in season not only looks better, but tastes better.
I get a lot of my recipe inspiration based on what’s available, so I packed this bowl with all of my spring finds.
You’re going to love the variety of textures and tastes with bright bursts of herbs and tangy lemon.
From crunchy radish to creamy artichoke, this bowl really has it all.
I love vegetables so much, sometimes I have to check myself to make sure that my giant bowls of veggies have some protein in there, too.
You don’t need to have that same worry, though, because I made sure this macro bowl is packed with plant protein and fats to keep you well balanced.
Quinoa, peas, chickpeas, and pistachios are all an excellent source of plant protein and avocado and pistachios add healthy fats.
This bowl is perfect for your spring meal prepping!
Prepare the quinoa and veggies in advance to throw your Spring Macro Bowls together for easy weekday lunches.
I added a dollop of Kale Pesto Hummus and freshly squeezed lemon to dress my bowl, but some other ideas are lemon tahini dressing, whatever hummus you have on hand, or pesto.
If you make this Spring Macro Bowl I’d love to hear what you think.
