I’m a big fan of simple bowls that pack a lot of flavor! They are quick to put together, you can easily change the flavors, and they are full of nutrients. I teamed up with Blue Circle Foods to create these delicious ‘sushi bowls,’ with their Happy Fish!
I love this take on sushi bowls for the fall/winter because they are warm, grounding, full of minerals, and have a balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fats! Plus with the cute Happy Fish, they are super fun for the kid in us all… Just look at that cute fishy shape!
Blue Circle Foods is celebrating #NationalSeafoodMonth this October to educate about the benefits of eating sustainably sourced fish and help make nutritious seafood more accessible to all. This is something that is super important to me, so I was excited to join in! (You can follow @bluecirclefoods on IG to join in the fun and win prizes all month long.)
Blue Circle Foods Happy Fish™ simply contain sustainably raised salmon, sea salt and pepper, that is it! Like all Blue Circle products, Happy Fish is free of antibiotics, added hormones, gluten, sugar, fillers, preservatives, and GMOs. It is certified sustainable by Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program, the Aquaculture Stewardship Council and Ocean Wise. They also contain double the omega-3’s of other seafood brands, so I feel great about about purchasing and consuming Blue Circle Foods
You can also cook these tasty frozen fish straight from the freezer in 4 minutes. Perfect for tossing onto these sushi bowls or for eating alone as finger food!
