Teaching the bowl trend at the beginning of the school year.
By Adam Weiner, JD, CFSE
The bowl craze is—pardon the pun—bowling over the country!
Let’s get down to business. A bowl needs:
- Protein and/or vegetable
- One or more toppings and/or garnishes
Each part is a layer. The bowls are not tossed like a salad. If your students are having problems grasping that concept tell them to consider they are building a yogurt parfait with distinct layers or making an ice cream sundae. They are not making something like a Cesar salad where everything is combined.
Please note each layer could be more than one item. For example, you could have a protein AND vegetables, or multiple toppings. However, this is also a good time to teach your students that sometimes too much is too much. For example, having three vegetables and chicken might be a great bowl. Having 14 vegetables, poke, chicken, tofu and pecans would be too much of a mish mash.
