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.

3. Vegan Quinoa Falafel Bowl

Falafel is so good and it tastes even better in a delicious bowl of greek produce with a little hummus. I’d also add some Tzatziki to finish it off.
