Create Your Own Buddha Bowl

March 7th, 2014 / cat / 0 comments


1. Find a unique, large sized bowl which you can become accustomed to as a symbol of nourishment and gratitude, and enjoyment!!! For me, the bigger the bowl, the better.

2. First, use an abundance of raw organic greens to fill the majority of the bowl. My favorites are kale, arugula and spinach — which are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber.

3. Next, add in as many raw or steamed veggies as you like or have available. I also add leftover cooked rice or grains. Mixing textures and variations in taste can be an enjoyable and relaxing creative process: crunchy, sweet, bitter, juicy … Add nuts, raisins, seeds, and herbs!!!

4. Now it’s time for protein — I usually choose beans like garbanzo, black or kidney, possibly hummus for pizzazz. Other delicious proteins could be almonds, pumpkin seeds or ultra-nutritious chia seeds.

Dressing YOUR Buddha Bowl:

This final touch is the best part and can be as varied as a flower arrangement. Drizzle your favorite olive oil (I love loads of organic Braggs olive oil) and vinegar, or splash tamari and lemon juice, add finely chopped garlic, scallions, mild or hot peppers, sprinkle sea salt, nutritional yeast, or cayenne. Discover what feels nourishing to your body, concentrate on tingling your taste buds! And of course, remember to enjoy with gratitude!  Now chew with love!!
