What is a buddha bowl?  Buddha bowls are a hearty, health-conscious meal that consists of lean protein, colorful vegetables, grains and other healthy toppings all piled into a bowl.  They are aptly named since the large mound of food symbolizes a bulging Buddha belly. They also go by the names: sunshine bowl, hippie bowl, glory bowl and macro bowl.

Where can I get it?  You can get buddha bowls in many restaurants that specialize in healthy foods.  Here are several places known for their health-laden bowls.
