This healthful vegan bowl has some salad in there, a few hummus, a few chickpeas, some paleo and vegan tzatziki and some quinoa, which most of us agree is quite Mediterranean.
One thing that I understand about this recipe, it is so great and it is an ideal vegan meal prep recipe. It is super healthy and can be produced only 5 minutes.
As you may know, I am not great at organizing anything, or so the hummus and tzatziki seem like they have just been slapped in addition to everything else. Probably because that is exactly what I did. Therefore, there you’ve got my consent to never organize everything perfectly.
Ingredients you’ll need for this Mediterranean Bowl:
Clearly This vegan bowl is Healthful, but let Us take a look at a few of the ingredients:
Tomatoes: the most well-known source of lycopene, a highly effective antioxidant which prevents cancer and cardiovascular disease. Tomatoes are also among the best foods for healthy skin.
Quinoa: fantastic source of plant-protein, protein also comprises anti-cancer phytochemicals. Quinoa can also encourage weight reduction.
Cucumber: may look like nothing, but it is highly alkaline that’s important to avoid bone and muscle loss.
Chickpeas: good source of fiber for a healthy intestine + plant protein, help control blood glucose and are great for weight reduction.
Parsley: full of Vit C & carotenoids, fights diabetes and boosts your immune system. Parsley is also among those 15 vegan foods which are high-protein, although low-carb.
