The premise of a Vegan Buddha Bowls is color, nutrition and flavor explosion! And for me, since I hate eating cold foods in the winter, I end up roasting most of the items, and then throw in any leftover foods like guacamole and roasted chickpeas. There are no rules! You just need throw it all a bowl with the goals being nourishment (whatever than means to you or whatever your body feels like it’s lacking that week).
Vegan Buddha Bowl, Power Bowl, Grain Bowl, Bowl of Joy…it’s all good…just get out of your slump and feed your body the nourishment it needs in a big bowl! Here’s to a less lethargic holiday season filled with lots of cookies and treats, but also lots of nutrition in between.
