The Bob Marley Bowl (Carib-Beans!)

The Bob Marley Bowl is my go-to satisfying meal! It’s ridiculously simple to make but the flavors are unbelievably complex. Not to mention the nutrition? I’ve been known to nosh it down for breakfast. Ah, Jamaican me hungry just thinking about it!

Motto of the Bob Marley Bowl: One Bite = One Love.

Cool. Crunchy. Sweet. Salty. Spicy. Speedy. Savory. Slightly Sour. No bitterness. Good for the animals. Good for you.

I savor every single flavor of this summer salad. There’s a reason it’s been a weekly staple that I NEVER get sick of. The tantalizing temperatures and textures are unmatched! P.S. My inner editor is cringing at the wording of this post. I guess I’m too twitterpated (read: stupidly obsessed and in love) with this bowl.
