How To Build The Perfect Macro Bowl

Hi everyone!

Today, I’m excited to share with you one of my go-to meals that is equally nourishing and satisfying! I was first introduced to Macro Bowls when I started to dive deeper into the Instagram/ food blogging scene and I was instantly obsessed. To put it simply, a Macro Bowl is a nutrient dense dish that includes all the basic Macronutrients… Protein, Carbohydrates and Healthy Fats. They’re simple to make and 100% customizable, which makes them perfect any day of the week. Below, I’ve put together a simple guide to building a Macro Bowl. Feel free to add any extras to make your bowl just how you like it!

1.) Leafy Green Base-

Layer the bottom of your bowl with hearty, nourishing greens such as spinach, kale, romaine, arugula, Swiss chard, mixed green, etc.

2.) Protein-

Next, add in your preferred protein. Fish, chicken, tempeh, tofu, hemp seeds, farm fresh eggs, lentils, etc.

3.) Carbohydrate-

Feel free to mix and match.. here are some of my favorites- Quinoa, sweet potato, brown rice, wild rice, beans, corn, etc. 

4.) Healthy Fats-

Load your bowl up with these good-for-you fats. Avocado, olive oil, hemp seeds, nuts, seeds, etc.

5.) Dressings- 

Top your bowl with simple, clean dressings. Olive oil/ vinegar combo, citrus juice, any simple dressing of your choice.

6.) Add-Ons-

Customize your bowl with these- Sauerkraut (great probiotic), seasonings, nutritional yeast (full of various vitamins), hummus, micro greens, etc.

Below are some of my favorite bowls-


I hope you all have the opportunity to try out your very own version of my go-to Macro Bowl! Wishing you a great week ahead!
