The quickest Mediterranean-inspired POWER BOWLS! In less than 30 minutes, this dish is made with roasted bell peppers, fresh cucumbers, feta, and a simple but amazing red wine vinaigrette. Low-carbohydrate, nutrient-rich and filling!

It’s been 14 days, 336 hrs, and 20160 s without donuts. I’ve cut them out of my diet.

Then again. But then again.

These power bowls will hold me over for the moment.

This is not a traditional donut, but it gives me the energy to last the entire day.

The roasted eggplants, zucchinis, bell peppers, and cucumbers, along with a red wine vinaigrette that is tangy, are enough to make me forget about the donuts.

Wait. This is a blatant lie. Naturally, I miss the donuts.
