Grain bowls are a favorite around here! They are very fast, super easy and packed full of nutrition. One bowl of food for a total meal. It really doesn’t get any better than that!
We all know the amazing benefits and the great importance of eating enough vegetables. This dish makes it a pleasure! In addition to the nutrition in the veggies, whole, pure, organic grains can have amazing benefits like better weight maintenance, reduced risk of type 2 diabetes by 21-30%, reduced risk of stroke by 30-36% and reduced risk of inflammatory disease.

Now add the advantage of black beans which can benefit the digestive tract, blood sugar regulation, and cardiovascular health. (source) Lots of nutrition with simply fantastic flavor!

Remember to keep your ingredients organic for optimum nutrition!
- 3 cups cooked black beans
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- 1 cup cooked millet
- 1 cup cooked rice (we like pink or forbidden rice)
- 1 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced
- 1 cup olives, sliced
- 1 14 oz. can artichoke hearts, sliced
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 3 stalks celery, sliced
- 1 bell pepper, diced (any color)
- 1 cucumber, diced
- ½ red onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
In a large bowl combine all salad ingredients. Add all dressing ingredients to a mason jar and shake well. Pour dressing over salad ingredients and gently stir to combine.
If you like you can top with some avocado. We wouldn’t suggest mixing it into the salad though because it will go brown fairly quickly. The flavors taste even better if you let it chill overnight however it tastes amazing right away too!
