I’ve been all about the #BabeBowl recently.
My in-laws are in town and it was Andy and me’s anniversary + his bday week so there’s been a lot of going out to eat, too many glasses of wine, and champagne toasts. I’ve also got some traveling coming up so for the rest of July, I’ll be totally out of my routine.
But instead of throwing in the towel, I just make sure my meals at home are EXTRA nutrient dense and blood-sugar balancing.
So, #BabeBowl it is. I wrote a post about Babe Bowls about a year ago – it’s just my cute name for a bowl filled with protein, healthy fat, and fiber-rich food (PHFF!) and as complicated as healthy eating can seem to be, this is something that I find REALLY simplifies it.
If you have a protein, a healthy fat, and some fiber and you throw it together in a bowl and top with a good sauce (or lemon or lime juice!), you are SET and you’ve got yourself a healthy meal that will keep you full until your next meal, turn off hunger hormones, and keep your body in fat burning mode.
This tuna salad bowl is actually brought to you by Andy, who made me a bowl of tuna salad, cucumbers, avocado, and tomatoes the other night when I asked him for a snack when I was up working late (HE GETS ME). It was soooo good, I’ve been eating it for 2 weeks!
This works well for meal prep, but I would only do 2-3 days at a time because tuna salad can get watery. And, I’d keep the ingredients separate and just combine when it’s time to eat….
