Buddha (Bowl) Lovaz

What is a Buddha Bowl? The beautiful thing about this meal is that, it can be whatever you like it to be in a sense, you can fill your palette with what hits the spot for you, fill it will a good variety of vitamins and minerals to fill your body’s needs and also use what foods need to get eaten! Mix a healthy grain, raw and/or roasted vegetables, greens and protein!

For this, I make the same delicious sauce and just mix things up each time.

Here’s what is in this bowl.
