Healthy Meals Can be Difficult to Plan– But They Don’t Have to Be!
Trying to create healthy meals for your family can be an exercise in frustration.
Meal planning takes time and it can be challenging to find well-balanced meals that are quick, easy, and can be adapted to satisfy various nutritional needs (for example, gluten-free) and preferences (vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore).
Even more frustrating is having to throw away spoiled produce that you had every intention of cooking but never found the time or the “right” recipe to use it in. Money down the drain!
Despite producing our own vegetarian podcast for the last six years, we’ve often found ourselves here too; until that is, we discovered Buddha bowls!
Introducing Buddha Bowls: The Vegetarian Zen Way!
What the Heck is a “Buddha Bowl”?
Buddha bowls, sometimes called:
- Power Bowls
- Nourish bowls
- Hippie bowls
- Sunshine bowls
- Macro bowls
are bowls filled with vibrant, healthy food. While they are typically plant-based (and dairy-free), we’ve seen some variations that include fish or meat which can work well for households with both plant-based eaters and omnivores.
You can learn out more about Buddha Bowls in episode 294 of our podcast.
Why do we love Buddha Bowls so much? Here are a few reasons:
Buddha bowls helped us go from feeling frustrated and like we were always flying by the seat of our pants to feeling more in control of our meals.
We love these meals so much because:
–> They’re quick to make
–> They make meal planning and meal prep easy and fun
–> They’re great for households consisting of multiple food lifestyles–vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike
