Cool Recipe: Spicy Tuna Bowl
I love eating rice bowls. Not only are they easy to make and require minimal cooking, but they’re also so nutritious and delicious. I confess I haven’t been cooking a lot this summer; my appetite has been a bit down and I’ve been too busy to deal with food prep, dishes and clean-up. Spicy tuna bowls have been my go-to meal option lately.
