Bowls have officially taken over the trendy food scene (this article confirms it). My infatuation with piling everything into a bowl stems from my deep-rooted love for a jam-packed, rainbow filled burrito bowl. Half of the fun is fixing up the toppings in a stylish, aesthetically appealing nature (food stylist…that’s a real thing. Aka my dream job). I love taking my favorite meals and giving them a face-lift into bowl form. Additionally, bowls are the perfect anchor to load up on vegetables, grains, & fresh herbs—dropping the heavy pastas, breads, tortillas, etc. And, being that bowls are literally an endless heaping pile of ingredients, the flavor profiles are endless. Here a few of my sexy-stylish bowl creations:
