Buddha Bowl Meals – Six Tasty Recipes to Inspire You

Vegan Buddha bowl meals or veggie bowls are an entire balanced meal created in a single bowl. There is a basic method to creating these bowls that can be applied to any meal throughout the day. The bowl is primarily comprised of greens, vegetables, protein, a complex starch, healthy fat, and a dressing or topping. However, for breakfast, you can use different nutritious ingredients to better suit your flavor profile.
