If you are regularly on the social networks, you have already seen them: Buddha Bowls. After all, they are simply to be photographed and viewed. Apart from that, these all-in-one dishes are also nutritious for your body.
You don't have to be a yoga fanatic, vegan or health blogger to enjoy a Buddha Bowl. In the end, all you need is a large bowl and some imagination. There are no real rules about what to put in there except a good portion of healthy, delicious and colorful food.
In general (depending on personal taste of course) it can be said 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, such as chicken, steak, or vegetable alternatives such as 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 behind this is to use each of these food groups in a balanced way so that you don't eat too much of one thing. The artful arrangement of the colorful ingredients is not a must, but it gives you a zen feeling.
