Put all the things in bowls! We’ve practically converted our kitchens to bowl emporiums these days and we couldn’t be happier about it. Whether it’s pouring a good smoothie into a bowl instead of a glass or smothering a veggie bowl with tahini sauce for dinner, we’re loving the bowl trend and may never give it up.
To celebrate our obsession, we’ve rounded up this list of fifteen bowls that’ll suit your every mood. Learn the basics of building a balanced bowl here and do not miss bowl thirteen on our list – the chia pudding breakfast bowl…
