20 Vegan Bowl Recipes Under 500 Calories

If you’re looking for some nutritionally balanced plant-based meals to help you achieve your healthy weight goals, you’ll really love these 20 vegan bowl recipes under 500 calories.

Wishing for some inspiration to keep your healthy eating goals on track? Look no farther than these amazing plant-based meal recipes. These 20 healthy bowls recipes have a few things in common: they are 100% plant-based (vegan), rich in protein and nutrients, satisfying and delicious, and contain 350-500 calories per bowl. The bowl trend is a great way to kick off your healthy, plant-based eating style, as you can build the foundations of a great plant-based meal when making a bowl. You layer in a healthy grain or tuber, loads of veggies, a plant protein, and flavorful toppings and sauces. And voila, you have a nutrient-rich, calorie-controlled meal perfect for your healthy lifestyle. I recommend about 500 calories per meal for most people (unless they have high energy needs) to achieve a healthy weight while meeting your nutrient needs. Any lower than that, then you will likely feel hungry and deprived. For lighter bowls, you can add a lentil soup on the side. Check out these beautiful, nourishing bowls to celebrate your healthy goals this year!
