Our daily meals – whether breakfast, lunch or dinner – have to live up to very high expectations: they have to be quick and delicious, healthy but not to complicated to prepare and best should only consist of ingredients that we already have at home. Is there anything that could possibly live up to all that?

The answer is YES: the delicious Buddha Bowl is all of the mentioned and more!

Although the idea behind the recipe doesn’t have its origins in the Buddhist religion, the name Buddha Bowl derives from its adaption of the Buddhist concept of balance. The secret of the popular dish lies in its well thought-out composition of ingredients:

30% proteins, 20% greens, 20% nutritious carbohydrates, 20% vegetables & 10% healthy fats

Sticking to this principal, Buddha Bowls can be over and over readjusted according to personal preferences (and possibly fridge content) as there are no limits for your creativity and no strict quantities.
