Vegan Buddha Bowl

This Vegan Buddha Bowl is a delicious way to get plant-based protein, healthy fats, and fiber. Avocado has monounsaturated fat, which is the healthy fat you want to be eating. With vegan dishes, it is important to balance enough healthy fat with the meal to ensure you feel satisfied. As a time saver, make the quinoa and dressing ahead of time for a fast meal!
