I’m sharing a copy of one of my favorite quick meals: the Glow Bowl from Flower Child! It’s gluten-free, easy-to-make vegan, and with a little preparatory work on your table in less than 20 minutes. Record this recipe the next time you need a quick and delicious healthy lunch or dinner.
Bye Bye! How’s the week going? I was teaching a LIVE TRX CLASS this morning and it felt good. It was the first class for back teaching in real life and in man, missed. I think virtual classes are a great way to stay in touch with all of this, but something needs to be said about the energy of the self class. It gave me a much needed reminder of how much I love teaching.
For now, I’m working here on next month’s Fit Team programming (the queue is open if you missed it) and caught a hot yoga class. I hope you have a nice day so far.
Today I wanted to share a recipe I love. We’re huge fans of Flower Child, and we stop pretty much anytime we’re in Phoenix. I fell in love with their Glow Bowl a few years ago, and although I’ve tried a handful of other recipes, it’s still the first. Pretty much everything you could want in a bowl: salted protein, sweet potato pasta with creamy and spicy almond butter sauce, crispy, steamed vegetables and lime on the side. I am writing this post salivatingly.
I’ve been longing for a flower child a few times already, and I’ve made a home version of my beloved Glow Bowlom. I thought it was finally time to share the recipe here on the blog!
You need quite a few different vegetables for this recipe, but the beauty is that you can really use all the vegetables in your hands! Super customizable. Also, feel free to use any protein you like! We usually choose grilled chicken, but it is also awesome with shrimp, tofu or tempé.
What can you use instead of sweet potato pasta?
Feel free to use zucchini pasta or any regular cooked pasta. I love sweet potato dough because they make the recipe a little fuller and add a food boost + serving of candy.
Can you use peanut butter instead of almond butter in the sauce?
Absolutely! They both taste amazing and the peanut butter gives it a stronger flavor.
Can you prepare this in advance?
100%. Store only in a refrigerator. When I heat up the next day, I just put a damp paper towel on top in front of the microwave. You can also heat it on the hob.
Please let me know if you try this recipe!
Copycat Glow Bowl recipe from Flower Child
A delicious, protein-packed salt bowl that you can enjoy for lunch or dinner! Feel free to customize it with the vegetables and protein you love.
I love making carrots, zucchini, bouncing peas, onions and peppers
Veggie pasta (optional); I love sweet potato pasta
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 teaspoon fresh ground ginger
Salt and pepper to taste
Cooked protein of choice
For the sauce:
2 tablespoons almond butter or peanut butter
1/4 cup avocado oil
1/4 cup coconut amino acids (or tamari)
1 teaspoon Honey
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Juice up the lime
Serve with mint, coriander, cashews and lime
In a large skillet over medium heat, simmer the vegetables, garlic and ginger until softened. Season well with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the sauce by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl.
Remove the vegetables from the heat and drip them with the sauce.
Serve in bowls (or store the rest to enjoy as a pre-meal lunch) and top with cooked protein.
Add extra sauce, chopped cashews, mint and coriander, with a lime wedge on the side.
