6 Stunning Grain Bowls You Can't Live Without

A few days ago, I shared a no-recipe grain bowl guideline. An easy way to meal plan and have healthy, delicious lunches that will keep you going all day. Today, I've gathered together six stunning grain bowls that will have you dreaming about your lunch hour all morning and keep you going all afternoon. These recipes take more planning, more effort and more ingredients than my no-recipe version. That's okay. These are for days when you want something extra special or have more time to create a proper meal.

Kale, Mushroom, and Roasted Chickpea Bowl from Not Enough Cinnamon: Sure, roasting chickpeas seems like a cumbersome step, but it's really pretty easy and can be done while you prep the other ingredients. This version has rich, delicious flavors that make this meal very satisfying. photo (c) Not Enough Cinnamon
