Ever thought that only unhealthy foods taste good, Or vegan food is just grass, or if it taste good it must not be healthy? And the list goes on…
Well I am here to tell you some good news, that you can eat some bomb ass meals, that taste delish AND are also super good for you.
In particular, these buddha bowls are filled with everything from your 5+ a day of vegetables, tons of micro and macro nutrients, that will leave you feeling like you’ve really given back to your body.
I am a firm believer in fuelling our bodies with goodness as it carries us around all day, and to function to its highest capability, we must really care about what exactly we are putting into our bodies (This doesn’t just involve food.. but what skincare you use, supplements etc)
I challenge you this week, to up your levels of Whole-food’s, no need to take out any of the ‘junk’ food you may eat, just increase the amount of goodness in your diet. And this recipe is definitely the best place to start. Invest in your health today, and your body + mind will thank you for it. x
