I, along with the rest of the internet, have been completely obsessed with bowl meals. I have made them pretty much since I moved out of my parents house, but usually it was a everything-left-in-the-fridge-no-groceries kind of meal. These days, I am much more deliberate with my choice of ingredients. It's so easy to make them healthy and they taste like comfort food! Plus, if you have any dietary restrictions, they are very easy to customize and make vegan, vegetarian, G Free, Dairy Free, etc.
