sesame kale glow bowl

It's about time for another Glow Bowl recipe! Glow Bowls are always my go-to when I want to throw something together that's quick, nourishing and super delish. This Sesame Kale Glow Bowl can be thrown together in 20 minutes! Plus I kinda need a break from all the Thanksgiving-inspired recipes, if ya know what I mean. Have you ever been to Native Foods Cafe? I feel lucky that one just opened up 5 minutes from our house. It's a casual vegan fast food restaurant with a 100% plant-based menu! Like, whaaaattt?!! Times are changing :) I've been so excited
