Buddha Bowls

Shot with DXO ONE Camera

Of course, I’m off prep and I can finally eat whatever I want! I’ve been dying to put together a “Buddha bowl,” they are healthy, beautiful and have become so trendy – but there’s so much you can put into them; sometimes it can be a little overwhelming. But today, I put together my first bowl after drooling over all the recipes on Pinterest. I totally recommend trying to make one – there is no strict rules as far as what makes it. It does include a variety of protein, vegetables, grains, and dressing. Some make full vegan bowls, vegetarian, or savory bowls. It’s completely customizable and total preference. Totally easy to fill your macros as well, if you’re looking for guidance you can break it down like this: 40% vegetables, 20% lean protein, 20% whole grains, 10% sauce, 10% add nutrients like sprouts, seeds, and nuts.

I’m going to share very quickly the one I made today, and probably ones I make in the future because they’re delicious and are so colorful!

Ingredients:

  • Organic lettuce
  • Organic red cabbage
  • Organic arugula
  • Red onion
  • Sliced carrots
  • Baked sweet potato

Dairy-Free Superfood Chocolate Shake

18622170_10155458670609575_5894520119201903118_nI am in absolute love with these shakes! Not only are they dairy-free for my sensitive tummy, my kids love them as well. They come in 3 difference flavors, but my favorite is, of course – Chocolate. You can make these shakes into different consistency by using more or less ice (more ice, thicker shake; less ice, smoother consistency).

Packed with branched-chain amino acids, contains 24 grams of plant-based protein, active enzymes to help regulate digestion, 8 grams of fiber, 23 essential minerals, and all natural ingredients. Soy-free, Gluten-free, and low-glycemic index. There are also non-dairy-free which is made of undenatured whey protein.

On this shake, I have coconut shreds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds.
