Buddha Buddha, Buddha Buddha, rockin’ erywhere – Yeah making Buddha bowls is like that, just so much fun. Check out my 21 day Buddha challenge for more ideas.
Here’s a simple guide to your bowl, a walk through if you will, let’s begin:
Steps for construction from MindBodyGreen :
1. Bowling with Buddha: Find a unique, large sized bowl which you can become accustomed to as a symbol of nourishment and gratitude, and perhaps a pair of chopsticks to complete the “mood.”
2. First, use an abundance of raw organic greens to fill the majority of the bowl. Like kale (yum!), arugula and watercress, which are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber.
3. Next, add in as many raw, steamed, or roasted veggies as you like or have available. Mixing textures and variations in taste can be an enjoyable and relaxing creative process: crunchy, sweet, bitter, juicy …
4. Now it’s time for the protein + grain combo: Lean meats or for vegetarian options choose beans like garbanzo, black or kidney, and grains such as quinoa or brown rice. Other delicious proteins could be walnuts, pumpkin seeds or ultra-nutritious chia seeds.
This final touch is the best part and can be as varied as a flower arrangement. Drizzle your favorite olive oil and vinegar, or splash tamari and lemon juice, add finely chop 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.
