As a nutritionist, I love the Dragon Bowl because it contains all the necessary ingredients to provide sustained energy. It contains a source of carbohydrates for the energy (quinoa, brown rice, millet and barley) and proteins to help us maintain that energy (tofu, tempeh, edamame and legume). Healthy fats are also added such as avocado, olive oil, nuts and grains. These bowls look appetizing thanks to the large quantity of colourful vegetables like spinach, carrots, bell peppers and beets.
To inspire you, I suggest you watch my short Dragon Bowl video.
