It may seem like we are talking about Buddha Bowls a lot lately, and well we kinda are. That’s because they are the perfect meal for plant based eaters!
Seriously though, they have greens, protein, healthy carbs and fat – a complete macro meal. These are especially great for anyone just starting to eat plant based, it will assure you that you are getting all the nutrients you need. Don’t fall into the trap and become a “Carbotarian” 🙅
We searched the web and found our top 12 Buddha Bowls to share with you. These first 3 are our top picks as they are unique and a little more creative. Which, believe us when these become your go-to meals – it’s nice to spice things up and have some variety. Get creative, and share them with us by tagging us on INSTAGRAM with #mybuddhabowl.
