Fresh Buddha Power Bowl

by | Dec 4, 2021 | Bowls, Recipes

Making a healthy and delicious meal from scratch can sometimes feel daunting… like… where do I start?! I like to encourage people to keep several staples on hand so that when you’re feeling uninspired, you can turn to a bowl like this and it will be everything you never knew you wanted, and more!

This bowl has been a MAJOR staple in my back pocket since I can remember, with loads of healthy fat, fibre, protein and quality carbs (I say quality because I do not consider most processed carbs to be ‘quality)…

Although (surprisingly) people still tend to tread lightly around avocado due to their fat content, I’m here to tell you that this fruit contains GOOD fat, the fat that lowers bad cholesterol, and raises good cholesterol. Some of the other many digestible reasons that you need fat on a daily basis is to help absorb fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K). Fat helps you feel satiated so you are less likely to overeat and will keep your blood sugar stable to avoid the rise and crash.

If you wanted to make this bowl completely keto friendly, you could take out the chickpeas, and replace them with something like cucumbers or peppers!

Considering this bowl is PACKED with flavours, I’ve kept the dressing very simple to just olive oil and lemon! Salad dressings don’t always need to be complicated, and when you get a great quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), the taste is already so potent, that all you need is some beautiful acidity to balance out the whole meal. Of course topped with some pink or sea salt and pepper!
