I thought I was running out of healthy lunch ideas. Before giving up and ordering food online which probably wouldn't be something as healthy as I'd like, I went onto Pinterest and Instagram for #foodspiration! Then, I saw a Buddha Bowl on Instagram!
Oh, how did I ever forget about you, Buddha Bowls? So, I looked at the pictures of super pretty and healthy lunch bowls (20 Wholesome Buddha Bowls to Nourish Your Body via Brit + Co.) . And I made a simple and healthy meal for myself at home. Patting myself on the back for not spending money and not giving into take-out food!
Of course, mine didn't look as nearly as good as any of them, but it was delicious and perfect for yummy! I used whatever I had in the fridge too. So my bowl included: spinach arugula, potatoes, quinoa, and avocado. You can find my recipe + some of my favorite Buddha Bowl recipes below. Bon Appetite!
What you will need:
I cup of Quinoa
4 Baby potatoes
Half an avocado
Organic baby spinach and arugula salad
Spicy Black Bean Hummus
Black Pepper and Rosemary
For roasted potatoes:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (250 degrees C). Cut the potatoes in half or quarters and place on a sheet pan and spread out into one layer. No need to use any oil, but you can use olive oil if you like. Add your fav herbs to the potatoes. I used some black pepper and rosemary. Bake for 20 minutes in preheated oven.
Cook I cup of quinoa with two cups of water– I used my rice cooker, it is the most amazing thing.
The hummus is from the grocery store. I wish I wasn't too lazy and make my own hummus at home.
While the quinoa is cooking, prepare your avocado and greens. Once everything is cooked, transfer all in a bowl and enjoy your healthy delicious meal!
