This plant-based health bowl is brought to you by autumn harvest. Pumpkin seeds, kale, maple syrup and more bring flavor and nutrition to your day.

There is no shortage of fiber in this Superfood Autumn Health Bowl. Start your week right with a meatless Monday meal packed full of superfood ingredients. This bowl brings you the flavor of fall using hearty kale, shredded carrots, fresh blueberries, chopped onions, pumpkin seeds and a sweet, homemade maple vinaigrette. Lentils and edamame pack in some protein to keep you full and fuel your day.

To make this superfood-filled lunch, mix up your vinaigrette in a small bowl using olive oil, apple cider vinegar and maple syrup. Shred kale in a separate bowl, then pour some of the dressing on top. Massage the dressing into your kale, then add lentils, chopped red onions, shredded carrots, blueberries, deshelled edamame and pumpkin seeds. Drizzle on the rest of your dressing and serve.
