What Is A Macro Bowl, And How Can I Make One?

Macronutrients are the building blocks of the body. You need to ensure that macronutrients form a large part of your diet in order for your body to function. Macronutrients include Carbohydrates, Fats, Protein, Water, Fiber, and Antioxidants. The top three macronutrients, however, are Carbs, Protein, and Fats. When you chose a Chef Soraya Bowl, you’ve got those three covered. Using your Chef Soraya Bowl as a standalone meal to ensure that you’re working essential nutrients into your diet while on the go is always a great option. The Chef Soraya Bowls also serve as a delicious and flavor packed base of a macro bowl.

 

 

Macro bowls are the definition of balance in a meal. They include all the major macronutrients you need in the form on a healthy and filling meal. They’re easy to prepare and great for everyday lunches, especially with Chef Soraya Bowls on hand. It’s the easiest and fastest way to build a nutritionally dense meal that will leave you satisfied and provide you with the energy you need to get through your day. In our example, we added dark leafy greens, cherry tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, and pumpkin seeds to the Black Beans and Rice Cuban Chef Soraya Bowl. You can use any of our six unique flavors to build a macro bowl.

Rice and vegetables provide ample carbohydrates. Pumpkin seeds, avocado, and even beans are an excellent source of healthy fats your body needs. The protein packed black beans are also supplemented by the dark leafy greens and pumpkin seeds. Antioxidants can be found in the tomatoes we topped our macro bowl with and of course and fiber can be found in dark leafy greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, as well as beans. Finish off your meal with a glass of water and you’ve hit all 6 major macro nutrients in one meal you can make in minutes!

This is a recipe you’ll never get tired of because of the endless variation. You can build your macro bowl to suit your tastes and mix and match with any Chef Soraya Bowl you choose. As long as you have a Chef Soraya bowl as your base, you’ve already got the three major macronutrients covered. If you want a little extra protein, you can add tofu, seitan, eggs, or any other source of protein based on your diet. You can drizzle the bowl in extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle on your favorite nut, or throw in some seeds to add a little extra healthy fat. Fats are essential in keeping your body feeling fuller, longer. Fats take longer to digest and will help you absorb vitamins and minerals you’ll get from your macro bowl. In addition to the macro nutrients in your bowl, adding a fermented element will provide your body with probiotics. Sauerkraut and kimchi are popular fermented options for a tangy bowl topper.
