Bowls are one of our favorite things to make, especially during the summer months. They’re fresh, delicious and, most importantly, super photogenic thanks to all the colors involved. Smoothie bowls offer gorgeous purples and pinks as their base, while veggie lunch bowls give you a rainbow full of veggies. Really, the options are endless. We love them the most because they’re super easy to make at home. All you need are a few of your favorite ingredients — and obviously, a bowl (a coconut shell will work, too!).
From salty to sweet, check out these healthy summer bowls that are almost too pretty to eat.
