In order to make sure I get all my veggies, I sometimes create a bowl of goodness, or what I call a Lucky Dragon Bowl.
When I think about making a well-rounded bowl, I always focus on the veggies I want to use first. Then, I think about adding protein as well as sauce to bring it all together.
Although I have favorite vegetables, sometimes I forget to “eat the rainbow” of colors important to our bodies. And, it can be easy to fall into a routine of using my favorite veggies without even recognizing it. For that reason, the Lucky Dragon Bowlhas it all.
For example, bodies benefit from variety, and we need a rainbow of nutrients and colors.
In fact, the variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables have enormous healing powers. And many of them bring their own distinctive colors.
Eating a diversity of colorful foods can be an easy way to get a complete range of the vitamins and minerals.
So, this lucky dragon bowl not only looks pretty, it has all the “colors of the rainbow” and tastes fabulous.
