10 Healthy Bowl Recipes Perfect for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner

Bowl Recipe
How Sweet It Is

Buddha bowls often get their protein from beans, but these Honey Chipotle Chicken Bowls use chipotle-flavored chicken breasts instead. Lime-infused quinoa provides a fresh zip to the greens, avocado, and tomatoes. (Get more creative with your cooking and try these easy chicken recipes that are actually healthy.)


This Thai Style Buddha Bowl with Peanut Sauce has a rainbow of vegetables and is gluten-free and vegan, so you know it'll do your body good. The peanut butter and coconut milk in the peanut sauce provide flavor and healthy fats.

Pumpkin gets all the credit when it comes to fall flavors, but this Spiced Apple Cider and Sweet Potato Quinoa Bowl is bringing apple back into the spotlight. Craisins, walnuts, and kale provide different textures to this delicious healthy bowl, and don't be surprised when you find yourself drizzling the apple cider dijon vinaigrette on everything.

Jar of Lemons

The potatoes and chickpeas in this Vegan Turmeric Quinoa Power Bowl are roasted in coconut oil and sprinkled with paprika, then served with turmeric-spiced quinoa. One batch of this health bowl recipe makes lunch for four days. That's four days worth of healthy lunches chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. (Turmeric is making its way into everything from iced coffee to face masks, so here's how to add turmeric to pretty much every meal.)

Preserved lemons are the key to this Moroccan Salad Bowl with Preserved Lemons. They provide a punch of flavor that regular lemon juice lacks, and can be bought in jars or made at home. The grilled vegetables, couscous, and pomegranate seeds are perfect for when the temperature drops and you crave something a little more savory.

Pinch of Yum

The homemade falafel in The Ultimate Winter Bliss Bowls is actually really simple to make and only has five ingredients. When combined with roasted vegetables, spinach, and pistachios it becomes a delicious and nutritious meal. There'll be #nofilter needed when you snap a pic of this incredible dish.

The Healthful Ideas

The base of this Black Rice Salad Bowl with Tahini Dressing is made from black rice, which is packed (and we mean packed) with antioxidants. Just top this superfood with chopped beets, carrots, cucumber, and homemade tahini dressing to take it all home.

The Fitchen

The vegetables in this Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Quinoa Bowl are simple—roasted sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and broccoli. What takes this healthy bowl recipe to the next level is the flavorful spices, which include paprika, chipotle powder, and ginger powder.

Little Spice Jar

The Buddha Bowl gets a Tex-Mex twist with this recipe for Steak Fajita Bowls with Garlic Lime Rice. The secret is in the steak marinade made with lime juice, garlic, and cumin. Layer the flavored rice with steak, vegetables, and beans—and don't forget the guac!

Choosing Chia

Take a break from takeout to make your own banh mi, and remix the traditional sandwich version with this Banh Mi Bowl with Sticky Tofu. The healthy bowl recipe keeps the familiar flavors and ingredients—cucumber, carrots, and cabbage—but rather than putting it all in between bread, this version is served in a bowl of rice noodles.
