My Go To Homemade Lunch

Facebook Twitter

Feeding yourself is an extremely important aspect of adulting.

Since I've been abroad, I have realized how spoiled I am by UMass dining halls. There are always freshly chopped vegetables in the stir-fry line, full cooked meals, and made-to-order sushi. In France, I have a grocery store and a kitchen. After eating pasta and pain-au-chocolat for a few weeks, I decided that I needed to start eating healthier meals.

Buddah bowls are delicious and nutritious. They're so easy to prep and have so much mix and match potential. Here are the six categories I like to hit. Pick one or two things from each to keep your bowl simple and yummy.

Leafy Bases: kale, arugala, spinach, lettuce

Raw Veggies for Crunch: carrots, radish, cucumber, sprouts

Protein: salmon, chicken, beans, falafel, tofu

Cooked Grain: rice, quinoa, lentils

Healthy Fats: avacado, seeds, nuts

Tasty Dressing: balsamic, sesame, lemon juice

Namaste and bon appétit!

Antibes Post: Sushi Shop

When I started blogging from abroad, my intention was to keep my posts general enough that all future-abroaders could find them somewhat useful. I’ve realized, though, that many of my posts are specific to Antibes, so ... if you’re planning on studying in the French Riviera through CEA, enjoy!
