5 Easy Buddha Bowls for Healthy and Delicious Eating

Whaaaaat 5 Recipes in one post??? I’m so excited to share these with y’all!


What are Buddha bowls exactly? According to the internet, they are bowls that are filled to the brim with veggie deliciousness that resembles the roundness of Buddha’s belly. This is an incredibly easy way to get more veggies in your life and to prep dinners that are healthy and delicious.

Roasting vegetables is my favorite way to bring out their flavor. You just coat them in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper or whatever seasonings you prefer and roast ’em in a hot oven.

Have you made a Buddha bowl before? What kids of things do you include in them?

There are tons of Buddha Bowl recipes online and I love that they are so easy to customize what you have on hand. Buddha bowls are healthy bowls of good grains with a well balanced mix of vegetables. The best part? You can swap in anything you like.

These 5 combinations are incredibly easy. Most of the ingredients I roasted at the same temperature all in the oven at the same time. The chicken I grilled at the same time also. Then all you do when you are done is put the combinations in the individual containers and you have 5 yummy dinners or lunches! Meal Preps and Yumminess!

Below are 5 individual recipes but I combined most of them and made them all at once for my dinners for the week! 


 

Meal Prep Tips:
  • Chop all your vegetables before-hand and you can store them in the fridge or roast them.
  • Every oven is different, so be sure to keep an eye on your veggies
  • I cook Brown Rice and Wild Rice in Low Sodium Chicken Broth instead of water
  • All of these roast at the same temperature – so you can put them all in the oven at the same time! Just don’t confuse the cooking times for each one!
  • To coat the vegetables with olive oil and the chicken with its marinate, I use this tool. You can get it here! Just 5 bucks and different colors to choose from. I got red because it is easy to find in the drawer!
