Pumpkin, Avocado and Buckwheat Bowl

Now if you have ever tried to do a search for ‘healthy recipes’ or ‘vegan recipes,’ you have probably been overwhelmed by the sheer number of results. Where do I start? What is half of the ingredients here? You may even start to question if it’s all worth it. 

It’s worth it. Trust me. 

You simply need to know where to look and to take the simple route. Good news is, you have landed here. And here, you will find not only simple and easy to follow recipes, but really tasty food and ideas! So let’s get started with this one – the pumpkin, avocado and buckwheat bowl.

Buckwheat bowls are easy to make, healthy, and packed full of essential vitamins and minerals. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect from this tantalizing dish.

To make this recipe, you will need 8 ingredients and 40 minutes. 

Buckwheat and vegetable broth start off our dish, offering us protein, dietary fiber, magnesium, potassium, iron, and carbohydrates. The carbs found in buckwheat are slow burning, meaning they keep you fuller for longer and a more sustained release of energy to your body. 

We then add pumpkin, coconut oil, tomato, and avocado to finish this dish off. This provides us with a good source of ‘healthy fats,’ vitamin E, folate, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin K.

The pumpkin, avocado and buckwheat bowl is the perfect meal for lunch or dinner because it’s:

  • Healthy! 
  • Perfect carb intake for after a workout.
  • Easy to make. 
  • A good source of protein – 10g per serve.
  • A good source of dietary fiber – 13g per serve. 

You may or may not need to store any of this dish, but doing so is very easy. Simply place your meal into an airtight container and pop it in the fridge for up to 48 hours. Just remember to remove the avocado and tomato before you heat it though, because that would be pretty gross! We want to keep those 2 ingredients fresh.
