Best Bowl Food: 18 Hearty & Healthy Meals in a Bowl

After a tiring day, there’s nothing more comfortable than wrapping your hands around a warm bowl of food. No wonder buddha bowls have replaced a lot of standard plates over the past years.

I don’t know what makes deconstructed dishes like burrito bowls or bibimbap so cozy. Perhaps it’s the vibrant colors, perhaps the composition of all those tasty ingredients side by side. What I do know is that keeping components separately not only looks pretty, but can also be a great trick to cook family meals for picky eaters.

Bowl food often consists of a layer of whole grains, topped with greens, roasted veggies and grilled chicken or fresh tuna. Finally, the lunch and dinner bowls are sprinkled with fresh herbs and crunchy elements, like toasted nuts, sesame seeds or edamame. But you could also have a fresh smoothie bowl for breakfast, a savory brunch bowl for lunch or a healthy dessert bowl at night.

No matter the time of day or the occasion, there’s a savory or sweet food bowl for you to enjoy. Take a look at these 18 hearty and healthy meals for the best bowl food.
