Looking for a simple meal to make using all your meal prepped foods? Enjoy this summery Foundational Five BBQ Tempeh Nourish Bowl.

I shared our first Nourish Bowl recipe in 2014 and ever since, the Nutrition Stripped community and our clients have loved this easy to assemble meal.

A delicious summery BBQ Tempeh Nourish Bowl made with the Foundational Five elements including sweet potatoes, bbq tempeh, cucumbers, corn, dark leafy greens, and avocado.

BBQ Tempeh Nourish Bowl

Maybe it’s because I’m born and raised in the midwest and our summers in Ohio were filled with sweet BBQ, corn on the cob, and cucumber salads, but there’s something about this nourish bowls flavor and texture combination that’s so delicious!

The wonderful thing about our recipe philosophy at Nutrition Stripped is the flexibility and versatility! Use ingredients that you have readily accessible, try new foods as often as you can, add what you like and replace anything you don’t like.
