Quinoa Chickpea Buddha Bowl

Quinoa Chickpea Buddha Bowl

This summer has been a glorious mix of amazing weather, trips to the farmers market, and travels to new cities. Since summer is on its way out (booo) I thought it appropriate to highlight one of my go-to meals recently: This 7-ingredient kale, quinoa, chickpea Buddha Bowl.

It may seem simple and just like any other wholesome bowl, but the flavors meld together perfectly, it’s a nutrient powerhouse (with 22 g protein per serving), and its simplicity is the best part (anyone can make it)!

Vegetarian Sushi Bowl

Vegetarian Sushi Bowl with Green Tea Rice | @naturallyella

Post sponsored by Stash Tea. See below for more details.

Whenever my husband and I talk about ordering sushi, I always go for the vegetarian options full of vegetables. As a result, I hear endless amounts of grief about never ordering ‘real’ sushi. But, I never feel like I’m missing out. This sushi bowl is easier than sushi to make but I still get all the flavors. However, this particular vegetarian sushi bowl has a special ingredient: green tea. We always have green tea on hand (it got me through pregnancy). When adding it to the rice, you get an earthy flavor, a bit akin to nori (which I rarely have on hand). Read more and see the recipe.

Spelt Grape Salad with Chickpeas

Spelt Grape Salad with Chickpeas

Every day, my husband asks, “What’s for lunch?” as he runs out the door for work. The question is usually because I’m not good at remembering to pack his lunch. But luckily, grain bowls or salads are an easy answer! When I do plan for lunch, I make this grape salad. In fact, I prefer putting it together the night before and letting the flavors develop overnight. It’s easy to make and easy to pack!

This salad is a variation on my favorite chicken salad recipe. It combines tangy grapes with creamy, flavorful blue cheese. While it may not be for everyone, I strongly recommend you give this grape salad a try. Especially if you love blue cheese! Read more and see the recipe.

Raise your hand if you’re always three years behind trends like me (wave it around, girl).

I’m still trying to figure out whether it’s cool or not to wear flare jeans. Please advise in the comments.

Veggie noodles have been a “thing” since like 2007, but I’m just now getting on board.

Who wants to spiralize things with me?!

Here’s the thing about spiralized noodles.
