Build Your Own Rice Bowl

BYO-RB! A favorite meal in our house. I love this meal because you can literally make it whatever you want. We switch it up with different variations like a Greek bowl, taco bowl, pizza bowl, buffalo chicken bowl, veggie bowl – the options are endless. What is great about this meal is that you can set up the base and toppings and let your kids go nuts! It is a family favorite in the Adams house.

Two things I always have on hand: boneless, skinless chicken breasts. On Sundays I will bake 6 or so (season with EVOO, salt + pepper) and have them for the week ahead. Great for salads, sandwiches, snacks, etc. I also always have cans of chickpeas on hand and one of my favorite ways to use them is to fry them up in the air fryer. Drain them from the can and put in a bowl, season with Trader Joe’s chili lime seasoning (or any other flavor you’re craving!) and put in your air fryer at 400F for 12ish minutes. I taste them as they cook to make sure they are just crispy enough without being dry. I snack on these and throw them on salads/bowls all week long.
