I'm starting to see a trend in my dishes - most of them are served up in a bowl. I guess I like when I can throw a dish together quickly, yet keep the dish exciting with flavor and creativity. Buddha Bowls are perfect for doing just that! This dish is super easy to put together, can be loaded up with your favorite ingredients, and packed ahead of time for lunches at the office (which is exactly what I did). This would also be a perfect weekend picnic meal. Have I mentioned already how much I love picnics? Probably, but in case you haven't read about it yet, I really do love picnics. Maybe it has to do with how many I had growing up with a child, or how much I just love being outdoors, but I try and have them as often as possible.
Some other ideas for protein include salmon, tuna or grilled shrimp. You could also add some banana peppers if you're looking for some heat.
1/4 c pickled beets (make sure to check ingredients and only buy a brand with no added chemicals or sugar)
1/4 c cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 c cooked chicken breast
1/4 c fresh sauerkraut (I used Farmhouse Culture)
1/4 c artichoke hearts
1/2 avocado, sliced
1. Fill bottom of bowl with spinach
2. Top with various ingredients in separate sections for presentation
