You guys said you need more lunch and dinner ideas, so this is for you. Buddha Bowls (or Hippie Bowls) are the perfect meals because they simply but deliciously include all the elements you should have in a meal.
How to make a Buddha Bowl:
Choose a grain base: rice, quinoa, farro, barley, couscous, wheat berries, etc. (I chose farro)
Add a protein: beans, tofu, tempeh, meat, etc. (I chose chickpeas)
Fill it up with veggies: add a variety of your favorite veggies (I chose broccoli, carrots, and mushrooms)
Top with fat: nuts, seeds, or a nutty drizzle of sauce completes the bowl (I chose a peanut sauce)
Buddha Bowls should be the template for your meals ~ grain, protein, veggies, fat. Mix it up in 100 different ways every day to keep it from getting boring. Make double portions to have for lunch the next day. You're good to go.
*I made my peanut sauce by thinning organic peanut butter with water and some lime juice.
