The Healthy & Happy Buddha Bowl

My new found obsession in food: The Healthy & Happy Buddha Bowl
Packed full of protein and gives me tons of energy pre & post yoga.

Serves 4-6
2 cups brown rice, cooked as directed
2 medium tomatoes, diced
2 cups spinach or kale, steamed
1 large sweet potato
1/2 cup all natural almonds
1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 ripe avocado, sliced
Optional: 1 cup medium cooked tofu

1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup tamari or low sodium soy sauce or teriyaki sauce

Cook brown rice as directed. Steam spinach and/or kale until tender (usually about 7 minutes). Pierce sweet potato and microwave for 3 minutes on side and 3.5 minutes on the other side. Slice sweet potato into 3/4” slices.

Place 3/4 cup scoop of rice into each bowl. Top each bowl of rice with an even portion of  steamed spinach and/or kale and sliced sweet potato. Optional: add medium cooked tofu

Mix the olive oil & tamari (or soy sauce/teriyaki sauce) in a small bowl. Spoon the mixture over the steamed vegetables and rice.

Next, top with chopped diced tomato, slice avocado, almonds, sunflower seeds and cilantro. Divide topping ingredients evenly amongst the bowls. Serve warm or cold. Enjoy!
