A healthy game day meal


This game day, keep your meals healthy with this super nutritious bowl recipe from Director and Executive Chef Nina Curtis of Adventist Health Roseville’s Vitaliz Café. These bowls filled with grains, legumes, veggies and more are nutritious and delicious!

Follow these simple steps to create your bowl:

  1. Cooked grains: Quinoa, steamed rice, farro, millet, amaranth or couscous are all healthy base layers for your bowl. Follow the cooking instructions on the package.
  2. Cooked legumes: Use edamame, lentils, garbanzo beans, black beans, red beans, peas, fava beans or any other legume you enjoy!
  3. Veggies: The options are nearly endless for layering your favorite veggies—try bell peppers, Bok choy, purple yams, squash, kale, spinach, cabbage, avocado, tomatoes, cauliflower, carrots or any other veggies you can think of. Steam, roast, grill or bake veggies for extra flavor depth.
  4. Toppings: Top your bowl with tofu, tempeh, nuts, seeds or any other favorites.
  5. Secret sauce: And, of course, drizzle with your “secret sauce”: tahini, fresh-squeezed lemon and olive oil or any other vinaigrette dressing of your choice!
