BIRD BOWL AKA BUDDHA BOWL

By: Aimee – VegEzy This is one of those easy weekly options that you can prepare Sunday night and have different variations all week. It is also easy to customize for a party or family all the toppings can be put on a lazy susan so people can build their own.

Makes for a fun time and it guarantees everyone is going to like their meal that they made themselves. This is one of those things where you use your own judgment on size and portion of veggies, protein, nuts, seeds and dressings that you want.
