Paleo Plantain Salmon Power Bowl

How can a bowl be so filling and so nutritious?! As filling as it is, I still wanted to add some tomatoes but there was no space! The flavour is divine; the “buttery” salmon, the sweetness of the steamed plantains and the richness of the beetroot will legit make your life. I was tempted to use a bigger bowl but then I remembered portion control lol!

This Paleo Plantain Salmon Power Bowl is basically one big juicy salad. A fully balanced meal with enough juice to keep you energised pre-workout or replenish and keep you delightfully satiated afterwards. I’m adding it to my catalogue of Whole30 meals; along with my Curried Beef Burgers & Sweet Potato Blueberry Salad.

Sweet Plantain and Juicy Salmon

I got the idea of a “Power bowl” from a “Buddha bowl” and I completely fell in love with the idea. Balance is key. This is why I love the Paleo diet – it’s about honing in on the foods that provide complete nourishment, energy and vitality.

Baking the salmon allows you the time to get all the other components ready making this a 20-minute meal! I used Coconut Aminos to season the salmon and as a drizzle on top. This I wouldn’t skip for the world: it brought this sweet plantain salad bowl to life!

Paleo Power Bowl

You don’t exactly need every component of this plantain and baked salmon salad bowl: you are free to make your own substitutions! I added in some leftover beetroot last minute. If you don’t like salmon or need more protein, try another fish or chicken or meat – whatever you fancy! Just make sure you’re giving yourself balance. Take your time to chew and absorb the deliciousness of each spoonful. Then be grateful that you have and are able to enjoy food and life.

If you checked out my 10 Minute Walnut Apple Treat post you might have read that I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy from the beginning. I’m now on Season 6 and still mourning George. If you know what I’m talking about, let’s take a moment of silence.

      Oh plantains are awesome! Make sure you get yellow ones (with or without dark spots) but not black or green! This variety is perfect for this recipe – I hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
