After years of ebook skepticism, I’m now totally on the Kindle train. The ability to take my books wherever I go–and not have to add physical copies to my already crowded bookshelf–is a total game changer. But there’s one kind of book that I still buy hard copies of: cookbooks! Because browsing through beautiful cookbooks is something I totally relish.
I’m always looking for new, colorful books to add to my collection and Nourishing Superfood Bowls is just that. It comes from the creator of one of our fave food blogs, Cotter Crunch, so you can expect tons of healthy recipes that put inspired spins on classic dishes.
A few weeks ago, I shared Lindsay’s Curried Satay Veggie Bowls on Hello Veggie–truly the tastiest way to use zucchini noodles. And today, we’re posting these Mango Tango Glow Bowls, which use anti-inflammatory golden milk as a base for a bright, tropical smoothie bowl. (And if you’re not into the bowl thing? You’re still going to want to make this and pour it into a glass.)
The best part about building a meal bowl is dressing it up with fun garnishes. We used a combination of nuts, seeds, granola, and coconut–and then because it’s spring, we added some edible flowers.
