greens + grains + protein + vegetables + sauce + flavor toppers
TIPS & GUIDELINES:
No rules. Follow these guidelines loosely and have fun with it!
Use what you already have on hand. Don't make a special trip to the grocery store right now. This could mean busting out your canned or frozen veggies. It’s all good.
Get creative. Have each family member grab a bowl and start adding their favorite ingredients based on their unique tastebuds.
Eat the rainbow. Try using as many colors as possible to boost nutrients.
Protein. If you prefer meat over legumes, feel free to add in your favorite. Remember, no rules!

1-2 Tbsp sauce or dressing
