What exactly is a glow bowl? I mean, really? They are all over Pinterest and when you google 'glow bowl recipe' (make sure to add the word 'recipe' or your search will come up with something entirely different ;) The search will come up with about 300 different recipes.
From the best I can tell, a Glow Bowl is basically a bowl full of super healthy food and when you are done eating it, you too will glow. Maybe. Ok, not really ... but you will feel super proud of yourself for eating something so healthy!
Macros and Micros Glow Bowl
This bowl is the perfect combination of crunchy, savory and sweet. The roasted chickpeas, roasted broccoli and roasted coconut flakes offer some crunch while the grapefruit brings a punch of bright and sweet to this yummy combination.
I have been eating this 'bowl' at least once a week for the last couple months. It's THAT good.
PRO TIP: Be sure to roast at least 2x more veggies than you think you need and have leftovers on hand!
