After a tiring day, there’s nothing more comfortable than wrapping your hands around a warm bowl of food. No wonder buddha bowls have replaced a lot of standard plates over the past years.
I don’t know what makes deconstructed dishes like burrito bowls or bibimbap so cozy. Perhaps it’s the vibrant colors, perhaps the composition of all those tasty ingredients side by side.

Bowl food often consists of a layer of whole grains, topped with greens, roasted veggies and grilled chicken or fresh tuna.
