So we have been meaning to post about one of our obsessions lately, a glorious bowl of scrumptious food that is currently bombarding our instagram account. We like to call these marvellous creations ‘Buddha Bowls’
We suppose this name stems from the fact that these bowls started as ‘post yoga.. I’M SO HUNGRY’ throw together feed.
(Namaste = Yoga = Buddha Bowl) Well, it makes sense to us..
Lets just get straight into why we love these bowls so much…
In one word, they scream N O U R I S H M E N T
You can literally throw anything in this bowl. From raw veggies to steamed or roasted goodies. Protein and carbs are always a must, hence we generally opt for poached chicken, smoked salmon or boiled eggs, with the carb component including either quinoa, buckwheat or brown rice.
This is essentially a multi-vitamin in a bowl.
Oh and we always like to add our version of a sauce. That being either five:am organic Greek yogurt or another exotic organic dip.
Soooo here are a few of our favourite combinations….

1) ‘Breaky’ inspired buddha bowl (smoked salmon, boiled eggs, greek yogurt or haloumi cheese, all sorts of veg, quinoa)
2) ‘Moroccan’ inspired buddha bowl (cumin spiced lentils, roasted veg, greek yogurt, green olives, brown rice)
3) ‘Rainbow’ inspired buddha bowl (colourful cooked and raw veg, poached chicken, feta, olives, spiced carrot mash, buckwheat)
4) ‘Nicoise’ inspired buddha bowl (tuna, boiled eggs, green olives, haloumi cheese, all sorts of veg, brown rice)
All of these little gems have a general base of grated zucchini, grated carrot, peas and spinach.
So there you have it, a short and sweet description of our ‘go-to’ meal.
NOURISH AND FLOURISH KIDS!
