Why Buddha Bowl?

Buddha carried a bowl with him on his journeys and accepted food as donations, which he would eat at the end of the day.  Buddha bowls today are considered to be bowls of a large variety of different foods, and we make them often with a rainbow of colours, tastes and textures.

Nutrionally they are a great way to pack everything into one meal: beans, soy, or some kind of legume for protein.  Grain of choice.  Selection of different coloured vegetables.  Spices and sauces or dips for flavour.  Nuts or seeds.  And there you have your bowl ~ have fun!
