One-bowl meals are a great way to add variety to your diet and get creative with what’s on hand. Primarily macrobiotic meals are a staple in our household. They keep our teenage boys fueled and happy. They are made up of four base ingredients—usually legumes, grain, greens, and a whole food like yams or avocado—plus a sauce. Most can be prepped ahead of time and assembled in minutes, making them perfect for lunch. Using sprouted beans raises the nutritional content. We love using fresh probiotic kraut as a garnish to these hearty, well-balanced, delicious meals.
