Fresh, light, and super easy and fast, this buddha bowl will delight your tastebuds!

The dressing is especially yummy, you might want to make double if you like things saucy.

Arugula is an alkaline food that helps to balance your body’s optimal pH level. Crunch on greens regularly to keep your whole body happy!

Add rice, quinoa, or even leftover roasted root vegetables to this salad for a more filling meal, and add some crunch to the top for extra texture and protein.

Prep Hacks: Make into mason jar dressings by pouring dressing at the bottom, then adding chickpeas, then the remainder of ingredients. Refrigerate for up to 3 days. When ready to eat, tip the jar upside down, shake, and dump onto a plate.

Make it Nutty: Sprinkle chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, or hemp hearts on the top.

No arugula: Use another green such as baby spinach or kale.

More food / fiber: Add brown rice or quinoa. Especially delicious if added warm!

Foods that Heal: The antioxidants in strawberries have been shown to decrease the inflammatory response in the body.
