    Nourishing Spring Macro Bowl

    A vegan & gluten-free Nourishing Spring Macro BowlNourishing Spring Macro Bowl by rachLmansfield

    First of all, can we talk about how gorgeous these colors are? I seriously am obsessing over this bowl. The colors, the food, the taste, it is seriously unreal.

    Plus this is another lunch time dish to add to the line up. We recently started making Grain-free Cauliflower Rice Salad for lunchtime and the bowl creation is continuing.

    This Nourishing Spring Macro Bowl is made up of brown rice, avocado, carrots, fava beans, snap peas, radishes and my new favorite kraut from Cleveland Kraut.  Cleveland Kraut is a quality kraut company by two brother-in-laws. Their kraut is so fresh, so crunchy and it is unpasteurized and filled with probiotics. I am always snacking on it when I am making dinner at night. It is some weird guilty pleasure I have. I love the crunchy consistency and flavors. It’s like my little appetizer. 

    The best part about Cleveland Kraut? The endless flavors they have. They are so unique too like Curry Kraut, Gnar Gnar, Whiskey Dill and my personal favorite, Beet Red. Jord is obsessed over the Whiskey Dill flavor. Everyone who has came over the last few weeks has been taste testing all the different krauts. There isn’t one that doesn’t satisfy that crunchy kraut craving.

    I use the Beet Red kraut for this dish for the extra sweet crunch I love in a grain bowl. Plus the flavors of fava beans, snap peas and tartness from the radishes, compliment the bowl perfectly. I don’t have a reason as to why I added avocado except I can’t not eat avocado in a salad, duh. I added it in last minute and have 0 regrets.
