#BowlGoals: 4 Delicious Dishes for the New Year

 
Here’s a resolution that’s easy to keep: Make better bowls in 2018. Whether you follow a paleo, gluten-free, vegan or vegetarian diet — or simply want to try something new — we’ve got you covered with standout recipes for tastier, better-for-you bowls. 
 
We’ve taken fresh veggies and fruits plus additional nutritious faves to create four flavorful bowls that are anything but boring. Bonus: We’ve included time-saving shortcuts too. 
 

1. Paleo Chicken and Veggie Bowl with Cauliflower “Rice”

This paleo-friendly bowl features riced cauliflower, a go-to grain-free alternative to rice. New to it? The technique to transform raw cauliflower into a bowl of rice is simple — chop, pulse, cook — but 365 Everyday Value® Organic Riced Cauliflower is a true time-saver, so we use it here. 
 

 
The recipe also has an option to add Nom Nom Paleo® Mushroom Powder, an on-trend find from the critically acclaimed husband and wife team behind Nom Nom Paleo. This umami-packed seasoning salt punches up flavor in a range of savory dishes like eggs, burgers, roasted veggies, and yes, bowls, and you’ll only find it at Whole Foods Market stores
 
Looking for more paleo recipes, tips and inspiration? Nom Nom Paleo is partnering with Whole Foods Market through January to showcase the paleo lifestyle.

2. Gluten-Free Veggie Noodles with Turkey Mini-Meatballs

This protein-packed dish swaps in yellow squash and zucchini noodles for traditional grain noodles and then ups the veggie count by adding bell peppers to the bowl. The recipe is easy to make, and you can save time by using gluten-free prepared meatballs for the homemade turkey meatballs. Get the recipe and see how easy it is. 

3. Vegan Smoothie Bowl

Rise and shine with a creamy base of antioxidant-rich acai and coconut yogurt topped with colorful flavorful fruits plus a sprinkle of nuts and seeds for crunch and protein. Watch the video and try it at home
 

4. Vegetarian Power Salad

Power lunch alert! We’re obsessed with this hassle-free bowl brimming with fresh veggies and added zip from a bright fruity dressing. Luckily, making it is as easy as visiting the salad bar at your local Whole Foods Market. 
 
Build your own: Start with a base of power greens mix, roasted mushroom blend (cremini and shiitake) and rainbow quinoa. Add turmeric sweet potatoes, broccoli, blueberries, and top with wakame seaweed and flaxseeds. Finish with our Superfood Salad Dressing.
