Simple + Healthy Sprouted Bean Macro Bowl

When all of my macro bowls start to blur together, I know it’s time for some defining features, like sprouted beans, rainbow veggies, and bright flourishes. 

For a fresh take on macro bowls for the spring, try steaming your vegetables and adding sprouted beans as your protein source. I recently tried sprouted lentils and I was impressed by the taste and how quickly they cook.

I dressed my bowl up with beet hummus, but regular hummus will taste great, too, or try a tahini dressing. If you’re feeling adventurous, try using the same vegetable raw instead of steamed for major crunch factor.

These bowls make an excellent working lunch or balanced dinner. Prep the veggies in advance and throw them together for convenient, healthy meals throughout the week!
