My new years resolution was to try Veganism for a month. I made this decision for many reasons, one being I always seem to eat the same foods and I think it is about time I got more adventurous. Although there are hundreds of wonderful recipes out there sometimes I just want to use up what is in my cupboards but cant think of how to throw it all together to ensure i have a balanced meal....
One solution is the Buddha Bowl, a dish I keep seeing on Pinterest and food blogs . A bowl full of a yummy nutritionally balanced foods.... Usually containing , quinoa, chickpeas, butternut squash or sweet potato and avocado..... Heaven!!!
