BLTA Grain Bowl by MONTyBOCA

Yes! It’s May which means Spring is poppin around the country, the trails are starting to dry out a little bit and we can get back outside.

Spring is a great time for day-hikes. Find those boots in the closet, stretch out those legs for the upcoming season and get some needed fresh air. But you’ve got to eat something. And if you’ve been following along over the last two months, you know I’m a fan of changing it up from the norm and adding some variety.

Day-hikes usually mean a deli sandwich, some bars or trail mix. But a grain bowl is a great, fresh, filling meal option that you can whip up without a stove, at the summit or at your rig before you head out. You can change up the flavor of this grain bowl to pizza, green goddess, tuscan, greek or asian with just a few ingredient switch-outs.

Mix it up, bowl it up and enjoy!
