Tacos are a timeless favorite, but they aren’t the healthiest dish. Luckily, you can easily resolve this issue by turning your tacos into a salad. This recipe does it right by combining delicious ingredients like black beans and veggies with a homemade lime crema sauce.
Buddha bowls typically combine grains with hearty fillings that are as colorful as they are tasty. This recipe features quinoa, green beans, zucchini and spinach. It also includes carrots, beets, avocados and pepita seeds. You’ll top it all off with made-from-scratch vinaigrette, which include Dijon mustard and red wine.
Another one of our favorite healthy lunch bowls is this summer harvest bowl. It has quinoa, lentils, hummus and goat cheese, plus a homemade basil-avocado vinaigrette dressing. With seasonal summer ingredients and flavors, it’s the perfect summer meal to enjoy this month.
Salmon is a superfood full of Omega-3 fatty acids, and this Asian salmon rice bowl is a delicious way to enjoy it. The recipe is easy—you’ll just need frozen spinach, rice and few different seasonings in addition to a salmon filet. This healthy meal can be ready in about 40 minutes, and it’s a great make-ahead meal prep option, too.
Last on our list is another Buddha bowl. This recipe features tofu cooked in a simple peanut sauce that’s truly addictive—one taste, and we bet you’ll be hooked. The combination of tofu with brown rice and crunchy veggies like carrots and broccoli makes this a satisfying, healthy lunch option.
