Buddha Bowls!

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

  1. Greens (ex. romaine lettuce, kale, spinach, rocket)
  2. Protein, mainly plant bases but can also be animal based ( ex. chickpeas, beans, tofu, tempeh, eggs, chicken, fish, lentils )
  3. Veggies (roasted, baked, steamed etc.)
  4. Grains (ex. quinoa, couscous, millet, barley)
  5. 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:
