Recipes for Health and Wellness

By Katie Tafel, Health and Wellness Coaching Program Director

Our Health and Wellness Coaching Certificate Program takes a holistic approach to health and wellness. There are so many aspects of a person’s life impacting their overall well-being, and a big factor is nutrition. Our instructors will tell you many of the clients they coach have goals or improvements they want to make when it comes to what they are putting into their bodies. They want to be their best selves, and they know food is a big part of that.


From working specific types of food into a diet to making healthy substitutes for common ingredients, we cover it all. And one thing everyone loves are practical and healthy recipes. Power bowls are one amazing option.

I love power bowls because they are easy to prep. You can prepare the vegetables and bases ahead of time and throw them together to make quick and easy lunches for an entire week. You can also give yourself some variety without much effort by changing up the sauces you put on the bowls. How can you get bored with variations like romesco dip, pesto, tzatziki, chimichurri, buffalo sauce and more?

Power bowls are not only versatile, they’re healthy. Adding them to your diet is a great way to make sure you’re getting extra vegetables and grains to keep you energized and feeling full for a longer period of time. Take a look at 4 delicious options below, and begin your prepping now!
