Bowls are one of my favourite meals to make especially when I don’t have anything planned. You can make them using just about any grain (or no grain at all), protein and veggies!  They’re also easy to customize for individual preferences, like if one kid hates avocado or one person wants chicken then you can do that because you’re making everything individually.  This combo I’m sharing with you is one of my favourites!
