Bowls bowls bowls, I’m all about that bowl. Especially…buddha bowls! Why? Bowls = meal prep at its finest. If you haven’t jumped on the meal prep bandwagon, get on that! It will make your life so much easier during the week and help fuel healthy habits. What is a buddha bowl? Essentially it’s a whole bunch of good stuff in a bowl topped with more good stuff. We’re talking whole grains + lean proteins + tons of veggies + nuts/seeds/dressing.
Today I am teaming up with Simply Organic to break down the anatomy of a buddha bowl and to shares tons of recipes to inspire you to get mixing in your own kitchen! Simply Organic is my go to spice brand to add flavor into anything that I make. They’ve literally got every spice under the plant, plus some awesome blends that I use daily.
Really the main goal of a buddha bowl is to eat as many colors and nutrient dense foods as possible. No buddha bowl has to be the same, either, so tailor it to your taste preferences. Words of wisdom- when in doubt, if it’s a whole food, add it into your bowl. Below I’ve laid out some of my favorite buddha bowl add-ins by category!
Anatomy of a Buddha Bowl
- beans (these roasted chick peas, though)
- ANY AND ALL (grilled, steamed, sauteed, or raw)
- raw nuts (cashews and walnuts)
- seeds (sunflower seeds and pepitas)
- dressing: (vinegar-based, avocado-based, EVOO)
Now that you know the ins and outs of what’s in a buddha bowl, it’s time to get inspired.
