If you haven’t tried out Buddha Bowls for supper yet, you are seriously missing out. Just like how most people throw a chicken in the oven as an easy supper, I throw together a Buddha Bowl. So let me gush to you about why I love them so much. First of all, minimal dishes is a major plus because I don’t have a dish washer. Second, I can take whatever I have in my fridge, dump it in a bowl, top off with hummus or balsamic vinagrette and I’m good to go. Last but not least, out of every meal I make, my body feels the most nourished after a sizeable bowl of great vitamins, minerals and healthy fats. I also make extra to bring for lunch the next day, and can’t wait until lunch time when I whip out my buddha bowl and toss in some freshly sliced avocado. Here are some inspiring recipes to get you started.

1. Sweet Potato, Squash and Kale

On a chilly day, this Buddha bowl is perfect. Filled with all that healthy squash and lots of greens, you won’t be disappointed by your supper at all.
