Workweek lunches are the bane of our existence. It always seems to comes down to the age-old decision between a salad (not filling enough) or a sandwich (too carby).
Enter: macro bowls. Basically, they’re a simplified form of balanced eating, typically comprised of a combination of grains, vegetables, beans or fish, and fermented foods. They’re called macro bowls because they hit all your macronutrients: carbs, protein and fat.
