  • 2 cups black beans
  • 2 cups frozen corn or fresh if you have it
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes
  • ½ cup sliced red onions
  • 1 cup crumbled cotija cheese
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • chili powder
  • granulated garlic
  • cumin
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 2 avocados
  • ½ cup sliced radishes
  • 1 ½ cup sprouted einkorn or other sprouted grain Recipe included in post as well.
  • 3 cups fresh spinach

Creamy avocado dressing

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves
  • 2 juice from 2 limes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    Boil your corn for a few minutes in enough water to cover it. Drain, and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Mix well. Place in oven and roast for 10-15 minutes until the corn is golden.
    Now, heat a pan over medium heat for cooking the shrimp. I like to cook it in a nonstick pan. Add the 2 tablespoons to the pan and heat it as well. Add your shrimp to the pan. Sprinkle with salt, chilli powder, cumin, and granulated garlic. Cook for about 1 ½ minutes and flip. Sprinkle with the same seasoning on the other side. Remember not to overcook. It won't take but just a minute or 2 on each side.
    Now, it is time to assemble the buddha bowl. I like to start with a base of spinach. Add the remaining ingredients and assemble the bowl as desired.
    Top with your creamy avocado dressing.
    This is also perfect for meal prep.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!

Creamy Avocado Dressing

  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor except the salt and pepper. You will want to season after everything is mixed. Once it is all smooth, taste for lime, salt, and pepper. Add all 3 accordingly. If you need to, add in a little more olive oil for creaminess.
