Home-made Healthy Salmon Poke Bowl

Homemade Healthy Salmon Poke Bowl

It doesn’t get much better than a good Poke bowl. I love one for lunch or as a comes-together-quick dinner after a long day at the beach. This one is simple, a touch spicy, and a staple in my home!

By making your own Poke bowl, you’re regaining power over what ends up in your bowl. That’s why I’m such a huge advocate for getting in the kitchen at home! No sugar-laden sauces or dressings with inflammatory and processed vegetable/seed oils. I love that this Healthy Salmon Poke Bowl is less expensive, cleaner, and quicker to make than taking a trip to the local Poke spot.

Whenever I’m putting a meal together, I think of it in terms of the Fab Four. Am I hitting my marks to serve something that’s delicious and nourishing, but also balances blood sugar and offers sustained energy? Protein, fat, fiber, and greens will do that!

Let’s see how this Salmon Poke Bowl works into the framework of the Fab Four:

  • Protein: salmon
  • Fat: sesame oil
  • Fiber: avocado
  • Greens: kale, cucumber

There’s no need to box yourself into a rigid diet or cut out food groups completely. The loose framework of the Fab Four allows for health and food freedom. All while helping you feel your best.
