When I'm Building A Core Protein I always Have a Formula
My Meatball Formula:
- Ground Meat (2-3 lbs)
- About 2 cups of veggies (always including onions and garlic)
- #40 cookie scoop (for easy portioning)

Anything Can Be A beast Bowl!
This tasty bowl of deliciousness, the "Thai Chicken Meatball Beast Bowl" was the first Beast Bowl ever on my menu. I ate it all the time. I know it's technically not really Thai, it's probably more Vietnamese-inspired. No matter what it's called, this Beast Bowl is fantastically delicious and full of protein and veggies.
Thinking back on the evolution of the Beast Bowl, I can clearly see my inspiration. I love vegetables, but salads, meh, not so much. I mean, not salads in the traditional sense. I find salad way too lettuce-y. The Beast Bowl provided an alternative way to get a lot of my favorite vegetables. Technically, building a Beast Bowl is like building a salad that's heavy on the toppings, light on the lettuce.
