If you're a regular social media user, then you've probably already seen them: Buddha Bowls. After all, they are easy to photograph and look at. But apart from that, these "all-in-one meals" are also nutritious for your body.
You don't have to be a yoga fanatic, vegan, or health blogger to enjoy a Buddha Bowl. Ultimately, all you need is a large bowl and some imagination. There are no real rules about what goes in, other than a healthy dose of healthy, tasty and colorful food.
In general it can be said (depending on personal taste of course) that the following ingredients should be included in a Buddha Bowl:
- a moderate serving of carbohydrates, such as brown rice, barley, quinoa, sweet potatoes, or corn
- a small amount of protein, like chicken, steak, or plant-based alternatives like tofu, chickpeas, and beans
- a variety of raw and cooked vegetables
When you're ready to assemble the Buddha Bowl, try to find a balance. The idea is to balance each of these food groups so you don't eat too much of one thing. The artful arrangement of the colorful ingredients isn't a must, but it gives you a zen feel.
