Kimmy’s Protein Buddha Bowl for Two

buddha-bowl

I harvested some veggies from my garden so I decided to build a Buddha Bowl for lunch. A Buddha Bowl is really anything you want it to be just follow these simple rules. Start with a grain like bulgur, rice or quinoa, top with your favourite veggie (and fruits like tomato and avocado) and finish with a spectacular sauce like my asian peanut sauce. Nuts are also a great crunchy addition. You can also make the bulgur in advance and keep it in the fridge.

I used bulgar as it has more protein and fibre than brown rice. (18 net carbs in this dish) The nutritional yeast flakes also add more protein but don’t alter the flavour.

Experiment with this dish and let us know how you do!

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
