Healthy vibes: the balanced bowl

A delicious and perfectly balanced bowl for all our health conscious guests.

A delicious and perfectly balanced bowl for all our health conscious guests.

We began the year with the introduction of two new side dishes (baked tofu and marinated bean sprouts) to encourage healthy eating. Today we present one of the many ways you might consider constructing your next super healthy bowl.

  • Base: ½ haiga (light brown rice) and ½ organic mixed greens
  • Sides: bean sprouts, seaweed salad, miso kale, baked tofu
  • Poke: Ginger Tombo (albacore)

From start to finish, each of the items in this bowl is packed with nutritional value. For example:

Tombo - (aka albacore or "white tuna")  a great source of essential omega-3 fatty acids that lower your risk of heart disease. It's also "a better source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than other tuna species" according to the SF Chronicle.

Miso kale - you already know the amazing health benefits of kale, but did you know that miso is rich in probiotics? Our house made dressing is good for the gut.

Seaweed salad - packed with minerals including calcium, iodine, iron, magnesium and vitamins A, B and C to name a few.

Ginger - (we use fresh ginger generously in our Ginger Tombo) poke, is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects

Haiga rice - milled to remove the hull, but not the germ. We like to call it "light brown" rice as it retains some nutritional value of brown, but retains the sticky texture of white sushi rice.

All that goodness in one bowl will definitely fuel your afternoon. How will you style your healthy poke bowl this year?
