This arugula couscous power bowl is filled with healthy, fresh ingredients. It's a low cost recipe that's easy to make and will keep you feeling satisfied and full long after lunch is over.
After getting back to in-person work and being back in more of a normal routine, I appreciate the ease and healthy comfort of a good power bowl. I prep my greens, grains, and dressings at the beginning of the week and can easily toss together a power bowl for lunch or dinner. You can save your leftovers and use them to meal prep for another meal the following day!
One of the most important things to remember when making any type of grain is not to overcook it. This could lead to a mushy grain or pasta, which is never good! I was recently interviewed in this article about cooking disasters... be careful when cooking your grains or you could end up in the next article! 🙂
