Buddha Bowls Are Easy & Delicious

Are you kind of lazy?

Do you like healthy foods but struggle to put together meals that are exciting?

Have you heard of Buddha Bowls?!

A buddha bowl is a yummy meal in which you get all your flavors and food groups put together in a delicious mix. And in a bowl of course. Preferably a BIG bowl!

Here's how to put one together:

Start with a base of WHOLE GRAINS or STARTCHY VEGGIES (cooked)
  •  rice, quinoa, couscous, sweet potato, squash
  • any kind of beans, lentils, tofu, or tempeh
  • kale, spinach, collards, chard, romaine, and any kind of sprouts  
And VEGGIES (cooked or raw)
  • tomato, avocado, peppers, mushrooms,  broccoli, artichokes, etc
Spinkle with HERBS & SPICES
  • parsley, cilantro, basil, green onions, ginger, cayenne, nutritional yeast, and I like to add flax meal or hemp hearts here
Top it off with DRESSING or SAUCE
  • tahini, miso dressing, any vineager, lemon or lime, tamari, and how about saurkraut and some of its juice!

Buddha bowls are a great way to use whats in your fridge into a new work of art each time. My favorite ingredients on mine are the tempeh and the miso dressing that I buy at the farmer's market. Find your favorites, mix it up, taste and learn!
