What are Buddha Bowls"
Have you tried a “Buddha Bowl”" It’s a big bowl of nutritious, mostly vegetables, atop a bed of whole grains. The term comes from the appearance of the bowl, packed so full of goodness that it resembles the rounded belly of Buddha!
My first introduction to Buddha Bowls was from a good friend and former assistant of Steamy Kitchen, Cheri of The Watering Mouth. Cheri and I used to both live in the Sarasota, Florida area, and she would come over three times a week to help create, test and video many of the recipes on this site. Well, it turns out that we both ended up in Las Vegas! I moved here to be close to family, and she moved here for the rock climbing.
Cheri is a nutritarian, which means she teaches people how to choose foods that provide the most nutrition and benefit to your body. Buddha Bowls are a big part of her meals – they are not only healthy, but provide the flexibility for everyday weekday lunches and dinners.
