Buddha Bowls seem to have become a big craze lately, but for good reason! They are nutritious, filling and soo yummy.
Buddha bowls actually began when Monks would go from house to house with a bowl and the people would put portions of food inside, they would use whatever they had available from there table. They would be left with a bowl full of different nourishing foods.
I love the idea of Buddha Bowls as you can put whatever you like into it! The basics of a Buddha Bowl is
- Greens (ex. romaine lettuce, kale, spinach, rocket)
- Protein, mainly plant bases but can also be animal based ( ex. chickpeas, beans, tofu, tempeh, eggs, chicken, fish, lentils )
- Veggies (roasted, baked, steamed etc.)
- Grains (ex. quinoa, couscous, millet, barley)
- Fats (ex. nuts, seeds, avocado, olive oil dressing, tahini)
As you can see they are super easy to make and make an awesome lunch/dinner that will keep your tummy feeling satisfied! Here is an example of one I made for lunch:
Romaine lettuce, red lentils, spring onions, quinoa and scrambled egg topped with olive oil, lemon and vinegar. So simple but super yummy! Try these out, it won’t dissapoint 😉 .
