The latest food trend to take over our Instagram, Buddha Bowls are ultra delicious, colourful, and oh so comforting.
Just like the cheerful spiritual guru its named after, Buddha Bowls will fill your soul (and belly!) with pure goodness that will taste divine.
Usually made up of grains, veggies, and a protein, the best thing about Buddha Bowls is that you can literally grab whatever you have in the fridge to throw into the bowl, making all sorts of wild creations that will still be delish.
