We already knew that bowls are trending in real life, but now social media is going bowl-crazy. According to the Daily Mail, the “power bowl”—a healthy, colorful bowl of vegetables, whole grains and proteins—is the latest Instagram craze. Don’t be misled—we’re not talking salads. These are meticulously crafted, eye-catching bowls of colorful ingredients. The ideal bowl, the Mail claims, is made up of 15 percent lean protein, 25 percent whole grains, 35 percent vegetables, 10 percent sauce and 30 percent mix-ins like nuts, seeds or sprouts.
These five fantastic, healthy bowls might not be made up of those precise proportions, but they are certainly worthy of the #powerbowl hashtag on Instagram.
