Not long ago I heard about Buddha bowls and I thought, what is that? I did a quick google search and saw that they are all over the internet. This, I had to try. They are great recipes for people who aren’t really comfortable cooking, because there isn’t that much cooking going on. It is basically dumping many different ingredients into a bowl, mixing it all together and enjoying it!
I found some recipes, gave it a try and I love them!! They do have many different ingredient and I am usually a 3-4 ingredients kind of gal, but what I love about the bowls is that they are colourful, meaning I am getting lots of different vitamins and minerals, and they keep me full all afternoon. I usually get hungry after a few hours after lunch and have to snack to be able to get me through dinner, but with these bad boys I am good until the evening!
These bowls are excellent for Lunch and will keep you full all day! Try this one out and let me know what you think and if you agree with my verdict.
