Balanced Buddha Bowl!

FullSizeRender 35

“I really regret eating healthy today.” said no one ever…
You guys know I LOVE my nourish bowls… honestly, there’s something SO comforting about a big bowl-full of healthy eats. One of my favorite things about eating healthy? You’re not stuck with skimpy portions of boring, low calorie foods. When you ditch the processed foods and fill up on simple, whole, REAL foods, you really CAN eat a lot.

Getting rid of preservatives, sodium, colorings, trans fats and refined carbs is truly a ‘gift’ you give yourself. Your body deserves delicious nutrients and vitamins– free of chemicals and additives. Studies have shown that when you eat unprocessed foods your body burns more calories while digesting them. You will lose some weight, increase your energy, fight heart disease, cultivate a healthy mind, and enjoy glowing skin. Do you really need more reasons to ‘eat right?’
This bowl is balanced, delicious, filling, satisfying, and it only takes 5 minutes to make! Without further ado- Here’s my recipe:
Balanced Buddha Bowl!
Serves 1
A simple bowl with just a few ingredients! Filling, healthy and delicious! Totally gluten free, grain free, dairy free, soy free and Paleo!

Hello Healthy Eating

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I LOVE sweet potatoes. Honestly I’m a little OBSESSED with Japanse White Sweet Potatoes. If you haven’t tried them yet, you MUST. Such a game changer! I eat them any excuse I get.

What about you? What’s your favorite nourishing combo? What foods have you been LOVING lately?!

    I haven’t tried Japanese white sweet potato. Those look yummy! Do they taste like sweet potatoes?

    March 23, 2016 at 8:30 pm
    • Reply Cailee

      Oh Rach, you MUST try them! They taste similar to regular sweet potatoes, but a little richer and (in my opinion) sweeter! They’re just the best!

    Looks so vibrant and healthy! It’s funny that you’re talking about white sweet potatoes, because I just bought a sweet potato to include in an enchilada recipe, and when I started peeling it I was like, “Why is this white and not orange?” I thought that I bought the wrong kind of potato, but maybe it’s a Japanese white sweet potato?!

      Maybe!! Let’s hope so because those are SO good!! I seriously LOVE white sweet potatoes!! They’re the best!!
