Ah, the macro bowl…
Macro bowls are one of my favourite lunch options, because they’re just so damn versatile. Honestly, throw a bunch of leftovers into a container with some leafy greens, and you’re golden!
The “macro bowl” was essentially coined because it contained a healthy balance of all three main macronutrients - proteins, carbohydrates and fats. This particular macro bowl was created from the remains of my Vegetarian Greek Salad Lunch Prep - because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good Greek salad!? - and contains some protein from the chickpeas, tzatziki (Greek yogurt) and feta cheese, complex carbohydrates/fibre from the chickpeas and fresh vegetables, and healthy fats from the feta and olives.
It’s a nutrient-dense and totally-delicious way to boost your energy in the middle of your workday, and makes the easiest lunch prep. (Like, under 1 hour for the whole week kinda easy!)
Try this for next week’s lunch prep and let me know how it goes! Recipe and details available below!

¼ cup chickpeas, drained & rinsed
½ cup diced cherry tomatoes

Take it with you anywhere & everywhere a delicious, healthy lunch is needed.
