Build a better bowl

I love bowls.  

I also love the new Ed Sheeran song “Shape of You,” pleather leggings, and my giant silver Kate Spade tote.

But back to bowls.  They are a great way to use up leftovers and get creative in the kitchen.  You can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  And if you’re doing it right, they can totally help you feel happy, healthy and hot.

Here’s my formula for a perfect bowl:  veggies + quality protein + quality fat + extras for flavor = happy, healthy and hot bowl

I tried a new recipe….

that was pretty amazing.  It was the Easy Weeknight Greek Fish Skillet from my friend Kelly Winters over at Primally Inspired.  Kelly has awesome recipes that are usually grain and dairy free.  If you haven’t checked her out, you should!

About the recipe…it was cod with spinach, tomatoes, lemon, oregano and kalamata olives, cooked in olive oil.  Delicious and so easy, since it was all in one pan.

It got me to thinking…how else could I use those same flavors?
