I’ve got a perfect easy meal for you.

These buddha bowls (literally given their name because they’re just brimming with goodness!) not only come together in a matter of minutes but it’s so incredibly filling and delicious.

They’re bright and zesty but also so completely satisfying.  They also pack a pretty good protein punch considering they’re meat free (though you can always add some grilled chicken if you prefer it that way!).  You’re getting protein from the quinoa, chickpeas, yogurt sauce and even the feta cheese.  It’s also loaded with fiber thanks to the chickpeas and all the veggies.

It holds up well in the fridge meaning you can make it on Sunday and have it for easy grab and go lunches!  That’s always a plus in my book.

I promise you won’t regret throwing this together – it’s a dish that can do no wrong in my eyes and I’m certain you’ll feel the same way after just one bite!
