Anti-inflammatory rainbow bowl – paleo & vegan

rainbow bowl

Since I am focusing on balancing my hormones, I am trying my hardest to not inflame my gut again and put stress on my body. 

I love to have big colorful lunch bowls with a lot of veggies and some good fats and protein to keep me full. I’m focusing on choosing foods and spices that support health and are anti-inflammatory. I know this shouldn’t probably even be considered a recipe cause it is basically throwing together some foods, adding spices and eating it from a bowl. But I’ve been getting asked what I put into my gut healing bowls and I just wanted to give you an example. I also share this recipe in my YouTube video down below.

This time I used some already roasted chicken as protein source but depending on your diet, chose whatever you like. 

You can even use lentils if you don’t want to have something like tofu but still have a vegan meal!

For all the health benefits this meal has, check out my list below!


Some people might not tolerate some of those foods and get inflammation although those foods include substances that are anti-inflammatory. People with autoimmune disease, for example, might not tolerate nightshades like egg plant. Some people experience allergic reactions to tomatoes. As you can see, everyone is different and it is important to listen to your body!
