Want a quick healthy meal? Try Buddha Bowls!
Buddha Bowls are a favorite go-to for a quick and healthy meal that can be made in advance.
Be creative and mix it up!
Just follow these five, simple steps to create your perfect Buddha Bowl:
Choose a lean protein: chicken, turkey, salmon (4-6 oz portion)
Add lots of steamed, sautéed, or raw vegetables (2-3 cups)
Add a healthy fat: avocado, nuts, extra-virgin olive oil (California), coconut oil, homemade dressing, or sauce.
Optional, you can include a 1/4 cup of quinoa or soaked beans or rice.
Season with herbs of choice, sea salt and pepper, if desired
Some of my favorite bowls are:
Sautéed broccoli, squash, and mushrooms with grilled chicken, toasted pine nuts with fresh arugula and a squeeze of lemon
Steamed garlic spinach, chopped romaine lettuce, ground turkey, diced avocado with soaked black beans and fresh cilantro
Sautéed snow peas, fresh arugula, and grilled salmon with Ginger Miso Carrot Dressing and quinoa and toasted sesame seeds
Wilted kale, shredded chicken, sautéed mushrooms, carrots, and onions with Avocado Crema
