Spicy Buddha Bowl

Spicy Buddha Bowl

Ascending masters abound would enjoy this savory Spicy Buddha Bowl meal. This delicious Spicy Buddha Bowl recipe is a tasty vegetarian meal with exceptional flavor. If what one seeks is a highly addictive processed food, this may not be the recipe to try. However, if one enjoys the taste of health and flavor in every bite, the spicy buddha bowl is a must. Personal tastes are a funny thing. Picky eaters may be on a specific diet, or could be bound to a specific lifestyle due to a budget, time, or predisposing conditions. Finally, some may feel as if the lifestyle chosen from them was completely biological. Research has been established to provide dietary requirements based off of blood types in humans. Carnivores, omnivores, and herbivores within the animal kingdom have altered orogastrointestinal systems that cater towards established dietary needs. Even the most minute of creatures in God’s kingdom have differing acclimated “tastes” that are contributing to balance on Earth. *It is significant to note that balance is necessary when there are finite resources available to consume. Those who are able to contribute to the Earth by eating harmoniously should be rewarded for the time and effort spent finding a solution. One example of a fantastic appetite is that of highly efficient microorganisms who feast on oil in waterways. These magical microbial species are itty bitty superheroes that clean up the water in our oceans, improving sea biology one mouth full at a time. Erroneous oil spills have no fear, these little microorganisms are helping to make the water clear. While those microorganisms do their part in consuming oil, a vegetarian meal is another way to save water and...
