There’s a very good chance that you’ve heard of the poke bowl by now. This dish that comes to the mainland by way of Hawaii has been gaining immense popularity in recent years. Shifting the entire paradigm of fast food and proving that nutrition, taste, and convenience can co-exist with one another, it’s no wonder why so many people have turned to poke bowl aficionados. Today, we explore its popularity.
Fuel on the Go
Let’s face it; many of us lead busy lives that constantly keep us on the go. This means that stopping for a lengthy lunch break and decompressing isn’t always a possibility. In the past, this meant having to stop for foods that were packed with sodium, calories, and preservatives that cause more harm than good. The poke bowl is a dish that can be prepared in a short amount of time and is made from fresh ingredients. It gives our bodies more of what they need and less of what they don’t.
Better Building Blocks
Speaking of fresh ingredients, the poke bowl delivers all of the nutrients that we need to sustain an active lifestyle. With rice and soy sauce, an already tasty combination that’s also gluten-free, and protein such as salmon and tuna that are both low in fat and have a high concentration of protein, you’re given the basic building blocks of a balanced diet. Throw in a handful of vegetables and crunchy mix-ins, and you have a taste that won’t have an adverse effect on your waist.
Many of us are finicky eaters who have strict rules about what we like to eat. Some of us also have diets that we adhere to, either by choice or necessity. For both of these situations, the poke bowl is the perfect dish to partake in. With a near-endless amount of ingredients to choose from, you can have a poke bowl tailored to your exact specifications. Have as much or as little as you want. The possibilities are limitless. Poke bowls can also be made to be vegetarian, vegan, and even gluten-free. There’s no better time to dig in. With so many options, it’s no wonder why the dish has become so popular.
