Buddha Bowls

Buddha Bowls are basically big bowls FILLED with healthy and nutritious veggies, various greens, and a healthy grain. These are the new craze in vegetarian and vegan cafés and restaurants. And they’re SO GOOD and full of flavor. Also, they’re really easy to make and you can fill it with any leftover veggies you have in your fridge instead of going to the store for more.
