Vegan Mighty Bowls

We’re a little over half way through the month of January now and if you set any fitness related New Year’s Resolutions you may be getting burnt out with your bland ‘healthy eating’ recipes. Here is a SUPER simple and delicious recipe to add to your stash for those busy weeks or when you just don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen. Now, I could go on and on about why I like the recipe or how it fits into my lifestyle but, let’s be honest you guys are just going to scroll right past it to get to the goods, right?! I’ll save my breath and your time and just hand over the goods now! 😉
