Hey there.

I creatively play with my food with my nine-year-old daughter in Louisville, KY. I hope you find some inspiration and fill your belly.

Power Bowl | Cheap Brown Rice, Avocado & Radish

Power Bowl | Cheap Brown Rice, Avocado & Radish


First, let’s talk tools.

If you’re asking, “What are those spirals?!” Read on…

My daughter asked if she could try every vegetable I spiralized! (ᵔᴥᵔ)

And I bet if you spiralize your veggies, not only will your plate be beautiful, your kiddo will love it too! I bought the Paderno 3-Blade Spiral Slicer on Amazon.

It’s super easy to use and clean up! If you’re stuck, YouTube a video real quick, but don’t let this tool intimidate you.


Let’s make this meal affordable!

  • Minute Brown Rice may not be the most glamourous thing to put on a food blog or on your shopping list … but I’m being real, it’s cheap and quick. I can hardly taste the difference if it’s seasoned right and I will A L W A Y S stand by this.

  • Dressings—I always buy generic brand dressings and add extra herbs or spices as needed. (I usually don’t do this though) I find it crazy that so many recipes ask you to make your own dresssings! That’s a pain, they don’t stay fresh long, and contents settle. So unless you have a dedicated empty bottle to shake it up in, have fun. Also, it’s cheap! (:

  • Radishes, carrots, green onions are good on your wallet.
