As a busy working mom I often lack the time, energy or desire to cook (seems like a strange thing to hear coming from a food writer, right?). But I feel guilty if I don't serve my family something healthy and satisfying. "Power Bowls" have a become a favorite item in our family. These are easy meals that can be quickly thrown together, but are packed with wholesome goodness. The staples we use for our power bowls are rice for lunches and dinners and rolled oats for breakfast (check out my favorite Power Breakfast Bowl here). Toss in leftover chicken or keep it vegan/vegetarian, you can't go wrong. A few simple ingredients is all you need!
This bowl features black rice (brown rice is also great), baked tofu, and avocado, seasoned with just a bit of sesame oil and soy sauce. Try topping it with chia or sesame seeds for a little nutty flavor.
