Spring is here and what better way to celebrate this beautiful weather than with these nutrient packed whole 30 paleo bowls! They are not only easy to make but are also the perfect food prep so you’ll be able to munch on them all week.

Vegan options

If you are vegan then you can easily switch out the chicken in this recipe for tofu or your favorite meat substitute. Just follow the cooking instructions for your meatless option, add BBQ sauce and you’re good to go!

Paleo options

These bowls are paleo and use homemade BBQ sauce but if you don’t want to make the sauce or have your own favorite brand then you can easily switch out the sauce. Paleo or non-paleo, you can customize these bowls to fit your needs. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is the paleo BBQ sauce recipe that I followed. As I said you can use your own recipe or store bought brand that you prefer.
