Buddha Bowls: How To

Buddha Bowl?! I can see your frown lines, pursed lips and squinted eyes. No, it isn’t a bowl of enlightenment, but trust me… this bowl will blow your mind! A Buddha Bowl is great when it comes to food prep, and it gives you the opportunity to pack as much nutrients as possible into your lunch time feed! There is no set ingredients, but I like to follow the steps of using a Base, Vegetables, Protein, Complex Carbs, Sweet, Crunch and Flourish.
