Keep it fresh and simple this month with our how-to on satisfying power bowls

Power bowls are one of the hot trends in the food world today. You’ve probably noticed them popping up all over menus across town. This just might be a trend worth perpetuating.

The concept is easy and versatile, and it can be customized to suit any palate. It’s a complete meal in a bowl and a great balance of protein, carbs and veggies that is satisfying and delicious. They’re also easy to prepare in advance—plan on about 30-40 minutes of meal prep—yet they will yield several healthy meals throughout the week.

For this month’s menu, we wanted to put together something simple for the hot days of June. The ingredients are fresh, there isn’t a lot of time spent over a hot stove, and you’ll feel good about yourself during a time of year when we’re all trying to get ready for a season of days at the beach or pool.

And what’s more refreshing to wash down those grains and veggies than a citrusy cocktail? We’re diving into the tradition of Daisy cocktails with a homemade raspberry simple syrup.

Read on for the recipes, and enjoy these warm, sunny days!
