I tried this delicious Tofu poke bowl at a Sushi place here in Lebanon back when I was a vegan, it was so good and the presentation was excellent.
This is what the poke bowl looked like, it actually inspired me to try to recreate it. Although I did not give this bowl of goodness justice in terms of presentation, I highly recommend trying to make your own at home as part of your fitness lifestyle. The Poke bowl itself is so healthy and here are two ways of creating it, I will share with you one vegan recipe and a salmon-based alternative.
In terms of eating healthy, a poke bowl is super good for maintaining fitness levels for many reasons, chiefly it is because it is based on a healthy protein (normally, fish but tofu works), it incorporates a healthy carb (rice,quinoa) and a Japanese vegetable (seaweed,edamame or red cabbage). Enjoy the healthy gainz!
