Veggie Sushi Bowls

Maybe you’ve noticed, but I love food in bowls. All of my baked oatmeals are in bowls. Most of my dinners are in bowls. But these are the easiest, most delicious bowls you could make right now. They’re super inexpensive too! And very customizable. I’ll show you our favorite way to make these, but switch the veggies up to your heart’s content! Yummm. 🙂

Rice, fresh veggies, and chopped nori topped with coconut aminos makes the perfect plant-based dinner! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #pokebowl #veggies #rice

Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers make the main dish of a hearty, warm meal. They’re comforting, customizable, and easy to make. Add whatever you’d like! But here’s our suggestion, the combination we love and usually go with. Comment below if you have a favorite mix of grains and veggies!

Avocado Rice

Happy Meatless Monday! It’s the last one of 2013, so I hope you’re enjoying it! This is the perfect time to think about going meatless on Mondays for 2014. It does so much good for your body, the animals, and our planet. I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer this close to NYE, so we’ll talk about it later, but going meatless for just one day a week would be a huge step in the right direction for our world.

In any case, I want to leave you with a really simple recipe. It can be a side dish or it can be added to tacos or burritos, but we eat it as a meal in a huge bowl. Haha! It’s easy, inexpensive, and delicious. YUM.

Let me know if you try this recipe! Comment below, rate it, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. Happy eating!
