10 in 20: Healthy Lunch Bowls

  • Copy by: Lauren Craig

A new year calls for hitting the refresh button on our workweek lunches. We’re pushing our salad staples to the side in favor of hearty bowls packed with good-for-you ingredients and delicous flavors. Whether they start with quinoa, rice or noodles as the base, these lunch bowls are filled with a lot to love–veggies, beans, chicken or fish, and whenever possible, avocado. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite recipes here to inspire you to branch out of your lunchtime rut. Prep all the ingredients the night before, and you’ll be able to quickly throw a bowl together and get out the door!

1. Roasted Veggie, Curried Avocado & Coconut Rice Bowls


2. Feel Good Lunch Bowl


3. Thai Chicken Quinoa Bowl


4. Fish Taco Bowls


5. Sweet Potato & Green Rice Burrito Bowls


6. Chickpea & Veggie Brown Rice Barley Bowl with Tahini Dressing

    Made the California bowl and it was outstanding. Used a wild rice/red quinoa blend. My girlfriend made the sweet potato green rice tonight and loved it. Ready to make the roasted veg and curried avocado bowl next. All of these are great because of the depth of flavor. I could eat a different one each day! Thank you.

  • These all look incredible! Thank you so much for including my sweet potato bowl. It’s been quite a hit with readers!

  • Perfect recipe. Very healthy and delicious at the same time.

  • very brilliant roundup. Thanks for this post.
