Grain bowls are a customizable, all-in-one meal that holds up well when made in advance — making them a favorite for meal prep. To build your grain bowl, simply layer whole grains with roasted veggies and a serving of your favorite lean protein. Add fun flavor boosters like avocado (rich in healthy fats), pumpkin seeds (high in magnesium) or micronutrient-packed fresh herbs. Finish with a drizzle of your go-to sauce or dressing. The mix-and-match possibilities are endless and support a well-balanced, varied diet.
