If you're late to jump on the food trend bandwagon, then prepare to be bowled over by this one. One of the hottest trends out there is food bowls. And the trend toward healthy bowls is one of our favourites!

We're all about ease and simplicity when it comes to mealtime. And what could be easier than a recipe that combines your protein, grains and vegetables in one dish? The trend to eat out of a bowl is widespread. It can be seen in restaurants, on take-out-menus, and home kitchens from coast-to-coast.

So if you're looking to eat healthier, and cut down on the after-dinner-dishes, then check out this round up of our favourite hearty and healthy bowl recipes.

Hawaiin Tuna Poke Bowl

Forget Spam, poi and pineapple. Poké (pronounced poh-kay) is a Hawaiian staple that is quickly making its way to the mainland. While traditionally made using ahi tuna, mainland Pokérias (no, not a real word but sure to catch on) are chopping up octopus, salmon and scallops as well. The fish is marinated in soy sauce and sesame oil and then can be tossed with everything from green and white onions, edamame and wasabi to sesame seeds, macadamia nuts and jalapenos. Poké can be served with tortilla chips, piled atop a bowl of rice, noodles or kale, or simply snacked on with a spoon.
