Vibrant Recipes with Endless Possibilities.

Want to cook healthier, low-stress dinners, improve your lunch game, and find meals that can be prepped mostly in advance? Bowls are for you! You can create satisfying, nourishing, bowls built around grains, noodles, greens, and broths and find inspiration to customize your own creations.

The popularity of chains such as Sweetgreen and Dig Inn continue to grow, and bowls have started to appear in supermarket produce aisles (and even in the freezer section). Our recipes translate bowl culture to the home kitchen with a mix of inspiring ideas and recipes that are scaled down to 2 to 4 people. We’ve also streamlined every recipe to 1 hour or less, and ensure that most complete bowls (and all bowl components) can be made in advance.
