Man, feeding yourself can be a beast! Honestly it can consume most our day if we let it, especially if you're feeding other humans along with yourself. As a mother of 4 kids I feel my life is spent in the kitchen. I'm either cooking or cleaning..... or standing wondering what the heck to make! The key to making this whole eating experience a pleasant one is meal prep and planning. We hope that this week of buddha bowls has helped you in your efforts! Today's bowl is a Thai Buddha Bowl. Why . . .
Guys - we are going strong on this buddha-bowl week! What has been your favorite so far? The Mexi-Quinoa Bowl? The Chimichurri Chicken Bowl? Or how about the Spicy Chicken Burrito Bowl? I really can't even decide. They are all so mouthwatering. We hope we've inspired you to treat yourself well and feed yourself a delicious and healthy lunch. Buddha-Bowl week isn't over yet! Today I wanted to share this easy peasy idea. Buddha-Bowls for an Easy Lunch I've really loved eating . . .
Last summer I sat on a warm, sunny SoCal beach next to my dear friend who was eating a lunch similar to this Mexi-quinoa buddha bowl. Gosh it looked so good, and I was SO hungry. I love going to the beach all day, soaking in the sun and sea air, but really struggle with a meal to bring for myself! PBJ's are great for the kids-- not me. I struggle in general with coming up with good lunches for myself. So making lunch ahead of time, like this Mexi-quinoa buddha bowl or Kadee's Burritos buddha . . .
I'm really loving this Buddha Bowl week! They're healthy and do wonders for your PB&J lunches. When we were texting about what recipes we'd do, I immediately knew my newest obsession, these Chimichurri Grilled Chicken Bowls were my ticket. Chimichurri I've had chimichurri a few times before, some better than others, and even have another recipe on the site for Chimichurri Steak Tacos. But when my Argentine neighbor moved in two houses down, you know I hit her up for her chimichurri. . . .
I don't want to toot my own horn, but this recipe is GOOD. Each time I make it, every crumb is devoured. This burrito bowl has been my go-to meal prep meal as of late. It has been a lunch I have looked forward to, and I don't feel guilty about eating. BURRITO BOWLS FOR THE SOUL I want to tell you how this recipe came to be. About four months back, my then-2-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. It was and has been a very trying time for my family. My little boy, Graham, has been in . . .
I've been really into meals in a bowl lately. It is so visually appealing to see all of the ingredients in my bowl ready to be tossed together. I also love having tasty fresh ingredients for a meal. Some of my favorite flavors are definitely greek flavors. I love the bite and zing of kalamata olives along with cool cucumber and smooth feta. So my obsession with bowl meals and my craving for mediterranean food inspired this healthy and easy meal. I marinated some chicken breasts and . . .
Bowls are the new plates. It's true. Martha Stewart said it, so it's true. Ha ha! Really though! Have you noticed how popular meals served in bowls have become? I love serving food in the Fiesta bistro bowl. They are truly one of my favorite pieces of dinnerware. The depth is perfect, they are chip resistant, and they are beautiful to boot! Today I'm serving up a California roll...in a bowl. Who is a sushi lover out there? If I'm being honest - I'm pretty reserved when it comes . . .
I am so excited for this vegetarian week! I'm from Texas, so I'm obviously a steak-grilling, brisket-pounding, burger-loving gal. BUT. I'm a changed woman. My husband and I lived in California for several years, so you know it was bound to happen. The hippies and the veggie-loving local-supporting crowd at the farmers' markets and roadside fruit stands got to me. And I liked it. Carly, one of the girls here at Oh So is a vegetarian, and I had several other friends that were vegetarian. . . .
A few months ago I attended a wonderful blog conference in LA. I met some amazing social media influencers as well as many seriously talented people. It was a conference put on by the LDS church. I really enjoyed my day there, the speakers were funny, uplifting, encouraging. The swag bag, seriously swag, and of course- excellent food. When lunch time rolled around they served the most delicious caprese sandwiches on an artisan bread with a sweet potato, arugula and couscous salad. I . . .
