Grilled steak and sweet potato fries. Yes, please! We hope that you like meal prep bowls as much as we do. The other day while we were cooking up a bunch of holiday recipes, we made this beast bowl for lunch. [It was my favorite to date!]
We are also working on a fantastic Beast Bowl Cookbook that we hope to release this fall.
I cannot wait to see the first version. Our goal is to give you this amazingly easy and flavorful way of getting in your macros. Whether you’re counting every macro, or want to eat clean and healthy food, this cookbook will help you plan fast and easy weekly meals.
The beast bowl concept happened a little bit by accident.
I’ve always been a weekly food prep master. Even though that is true, I was still finding it hard to get enough servings of fresh veggies. I was getting bored. Every week I would cook up a big batch of delicious protein. I would usually do two different proteins for some variety. But then my veggies were stuck on a repeat of – green beans, broccoli, or cauliflower. A foodie cannot live like this! I needed more flavor in my life!
I did a post almost a year ago now highlighting my Thai Chicken Meatballs and just happened to call it a Beast Bowl. This got me to thinking about how I could turn this veggie and protein-packed bowl of deliciousness into a meal prep solution. Et Voila! The Beast Bowl was born! My next Beast Bowl was a Greek Burger Beast Bowl. Now only a few months later, we have a fantastic lineup of Beast Bowls on the blog – with a new one coming out each week.

Steak and Sweet Potato Power Bowl

- ¼ red onion
- 2 cups tomatoes
- Rub steak with salt and pepper.
- Place in a shallow glass dish (or a plastic bag).
- Add oil and balsamic vinegar.
- Toss to coat and let marinate for about 2 hours. Steak should be at room temperature for at least an hour before you grill it.

- Cut sweet potatoes into fries.
- Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Drizzle with oil, salt and toss to coat.
- Spread evenly on the baking sheet.
