Happy 2018!

What a year! While it's always great to make new resolutions, some of ours will definitely stay the same, and that means keeping these Grain Bowl recipes around!

These two Grain Bowls are filled with nutrients and are super simple to make. While the ingredients may look daunting at first, a lot of them you'll probably find lying in your kitchen cabinets or pantry. They're also really easy to find at any local supermarket. So indulge and start the year feeling GREAT. We promise these will keep you ahead of the game.
