Glowing Rainbow -- Macrobiotic Bowl

Chef and Founder of
Eat Clean with Sarah

When it comes to having healthy hair, it's not just about using high-quality products on the outside—what you put inside matters just as much! The strength and shine of your hair depend on making sure your body is adequately nourished and thriving by feeding it the right nutrients. High-quality fats and healing plants are essential for encouraging that overall “glow.”

This macrobiotic bowl is not only incredibly delicious, but contains essential nutrients that give your body all of the love it needs to shine. Avocado and pumpkin seeds are beyond nourishing and are a great way to add those “healthy fats.” Protein is also essential for hair health, and organic tofu is an excellent source of plant-based protein.

This bowl is so simple, beautiful, healthy, and is a great way to make sure you are giving yourself food to fuel and feel your absolute best. The ingredients can be prepared over the weekend so you can easily put together healthy plant-based bowls throughout the week. You can keep it exciting by changing the sauce on top, I love a tahini-based sauce for even more plant-based healthy fat. Feel free to substitute any other veggies or grains you prefer. The beauty of plant-based living is that you can choose from an abundance of beautiful plants!

Makes one bowl

  • Ingredients
  • 1 small Japanese sweet potato (or substitute 1 yam)
  • 1 cup of fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 small head of broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cabbage, chopped
  • 1/2 small avocado
  • 1 handful of baby peppers, diced

  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tsp agave
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • Sea salt

How-to:Preheat oven to 425F. Rinse your potato, dry, chop into small bite-size pieces. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and toss in avocado oil + a dash of sea salt. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until golden and soft. In a frying pan, saute your tofu in a little avocado oil + sea salt + paprika, and cook on each side for a few minutes until golden. Remove from pan. In the same pan, add your broccoli, peppers, cabbage, and garlic with a pinch of sea salt + avocado oil and cook until soft. In a bowl, add your cooked quinoa, sweet potato, veggies, spinach, pumpkin seeds, avocado, and tofu. Drizzle your sauce over your bowl and get that glow on!
