If you haven't yet tried to make a nourish or buddha bowl, now is the time. These nutritious bowls are packed with colour, texture and flavour (if you're doing it right) and are perfect for bringing to work or for quick weeknight dinners.

The easiest way to make nourish bowls is to have all your components prepped before you start assembling. That can mean simply cooking a little extra at dinner so you have leftovers, or dedicating under an hour to cooking batches of grain (try rice, quinoa or farro), veggies and protein (chicken, falafel, legumes).

Then all you need to do is pile the ingredients in a bowl, add a delicious dressing and you're done. Here are five recipes to get you started and inspired.
