I Made It: Grain-Free Power “Rice” Bowls

Is it just me, or is there something about eating out of a bowl that is just the best thing ever? Ever since I was a kid I’ve always preferred the bowl life. I think it has something to do with the fact that I also like when food is all “messed” together instead of in

Truth Serum: normally on the days I plan on documenting a WIEIAD post, I make sure to take photos that are at least pretty-ish. They don’t all make the Instagram, but they’re at least half decent.
