The Balance365 Power Bowl Challenge is almost here!
I want to share with you a list of tools to help you rock this challenge and simplify preparing your Power Bowls.
Remember, this Challenge is supposed to make your life easier, and some of these tools can help do that!
- Chef’s Knife
If you don’t already have a good chef’s knife, pick one up for the challenge or sharpen your old ones. There’s nothing worse than using a kitchen knife that can barely slice through the skin of a tomato. There is a huge range in quality and cost of chef’s knives so you may want to shop around or here is one on Amazon priced reasonably.
- Cutting Boards
Try to designate one cutting board for fruits and vegetables and the other for meat to prevent any bacteria contaminating your power bowls. Studies show that plastic cutting boards harbor more bacteria than wood, but the consensus is that as long as you are properly cleaning your cutting boards the difference is negligible.
Grab your bamboo cutting boards here.
- OXO Bowl & Chopper
Prepare to have your life changed forever. I LOVE this kitchen gadget. Throw it in, chop it up. It doesn’t get much easier than this when it comes to throwing a power bowl together on the fly.
Pick one up here.
- Storage Containers
Prep and store your protein, veggies, carbs, and toppings in food storage containers. Your prepped food will stay fresh longer and the Sistema containers are also stackable and rectangle, making them easy to store in the fridge. These ones are also dishwasher safe, phthalate and BPA free.
- Salad Dressing Shaker
Keep in mind that you don’t have to make your dressing from scratch for this challenge. Supermarket dressings are an excellent short-cut/time saver and I use them, too!
However, if you’re wanting to try out the dressing recipes from our power bowl challenge, a salad dressing shaker is helpful. You add your ingredients, shake it up, and pour. Dressing can also be stored right in this container.
- Wide Mouth Mason Jars
Mason jars can serve two purposes: power bowl storage and dressing storage. You can use mason jars to store your power bowls and just grab and go on the way to work!
I hope you are feeling excited for the Power Bowl Challenge… I am READY to get started together!
