Nourish bowls are all the rage and with good reason. Not only do they look super inviting, they’re also a simple and seasonal way to consume a whole lot of tasty nutrients in one meal.

With varying textures, flavors, and even temperatures, this rainbow nourish bowl is a true treat for the senses.

To keep the preparation as minimal as possible, I recommend preparing the cooked elements in larger batches once per week. That way, you can put this bowl, and others, together in a flash when you’re ready to eat.
