It’s time for some new recipes here on the website after the launch of the e-book which took up most of my recipe development capacity in the first part of the year. I am excited to bring you three balance bowls today. Or nourish bowls. Or buddha bowl. Whatever you choose to call them I am bringing you three combos that I really enjoy and this one is a spicy beet bowl with beluga lentils, massaged kale, herby quinoa and dates. It’s also got a delicious hummus based dressing that is so easy to make I think you are going to love it. Enjoy!

See the other two bowls here: Green Spring Balance Bowl and Mexican Inspired Balance Bowl.
