Are you a Buddha bowl fan? I sure am. Ever since my first Buddha bowl experience, back when I was living in Canada, I haven’t stopped making my own. I love Buddha bowls for all the flavors you can put into one bowl, warm or cold. When I went to look for breakfast Buddha bowl recipes in google, I couldn’t find anything that I would have liked to try. So I decided to develop my own breakfast Buddha bowl. My first breakfast Buddha bowl recipe is made up of:
Cauliflower “rice” - Low calorie, immune boosting and packed with vitamin C
Avocado - Fiber, potassium and fats (the good kind of fats)
Micro greens - Sneak these things in everywhere for high antioxidant, rich in enzymes (great for digestion), and they help improve overall health.
Spinach - This leafy green is packed with many vitamins and minerals some of my favorites are fiber, iron, and calcium.
This breakfast Buddha bowl is a great choice for breakfast, but also for other meals. I actually have been enjoying it for lunch, too. I have been on a no sugar “diet” since the 8th of January, so I am looking for more ways to pack on healthy choices into recipes so I don’t reach for the sugar. I have lost 5 pounds since I’ve started, so I have been feeling good and quite proud of myself. Have you ever went cold turkey on sugar?

In the same skillet, sauté spinach and garlic until the spinach wilts, then add to the bowl of cauliflower.
Fry the egg with a pinch of salt.
