Have you seen the weather recently? I don’t know you, but we are freezing here in Montreal. I feel that during the winter, it is very difficult to keep eating healthy. I used to come home and just cook some pasta and that was it. But we are now in 2018, we have to keep our new healthy living resolutions! 
 
We know now that taking care our health is ESSENTIAL! Especially in winter, with all the flues/ colds running around us. This is why we created three super bowls for our cold Canadian winter:
 
  • The high protein for all those who want to gain some muscles for this summer. 
  • The root veggie bowl to eat local, seasonal foods. 
  • The green one, packed with nutrients, for healthy bones and lots of vitamins.
 
I tried to reuse a lot of the ingredients in different bowls so that it would be easier for you to prep your bowls for your week. Store the sauce in a tight container and drizzle some when you are ready to eat.
