Vegan rainbow power lunch bowl 


Post workout today was a vegan potato veggie bowl. Did you know that there are plant based foods with just as much protein, less carcinogens and more antioxidants than meat?

Broccoli is delicious 🙂

The main ingredients in this lunch bowl are russet potatoes, red bell pepper and broccoli. Here are some nutrition facts before going through this super easy uber healthy lunch:
