With Thanksgiving right around the corner, my diet has consisted of green bean casseroles, mashed sweet potatoes, and butternut squash mac and cheese. Mainly for work. Not for leisure, of course.

But when I’m not busy recipe-testing for Thanksgiving goodies, I’ve been inhaling these nourish bowls on the regular.

It’s right up my alley for this wedding diet (you know, the wedding that’s happening in 18 months!) – filled with so many veggies and the best maple tahini dressing EVERRRRR.

But most importantly, these bowls are complete with POM POMS Fresh Arils (the arils, or seeds, inside the pomegranate)!

Being a great source of fiber and known for their antioxidants, I have been snacking on these constantly, and adding a handful of POM POMS to these bowls, making it the perfect addition to all of your favorite salads/grain bowls.

They come in two very convenient sizes: a 100-calorie 4.3-oz single serving and an 8-oz size the whole family can enjoy. I used an entire 8-ounce package for these bowls, but the 100-calorie packs are also the best for snacking purposes!

  1. This recipe was AMAZING!!! The combination of rice, sweet potato, and avocado made these healthy nourish bowls super filling. This recipe is definitely going into my regular rotation. P.S. I’d love to see more nourish bowl recipes!!! 🙂

  2. These look really delicious! Do you eat them cold or warm? (Or either?) I bought a Nourish bowl in the salad section at the grocery store, thinking it was a cold salad. I got home and read the directions. It said to heat it in the microwave, then pour the dressing packet on. It was meant to be eaten warm. It was really good!!! I just didn’t know how warming the avocado would work out here, so that’s why I am asking. (I guess I could omit it.) Thanks!

  3. my first thought was what a great breakfast!!

  4. The looks amazing!  I love the combination of ingredients. So colorful and healthy!  Yay for nourish bowls.
