Developing healthy eating habits is generally one of the top New Year's resolutions for many people, but finding the right foods to eat can be a daunting task, especially if you're not familiar with many healthy foods.


However, if you don't allow yourself to try new foods, you may end up eating the same boring, mundane meals that will likely have you running back to the greasy, fried fast food that you're used to. To avoid falling back into old habits, there is an ingenious way to enjoy more than one healthy food at a time that will leave you satisfied. If you haven't heard of Buddha bowls yet, then prepare to be amazed, sis.

Buddha bowls are one of the best and easiest go-to meals for those who are trying to be about that healthy life. They are bowls that are usually large in size, filled with a blend of protein, grains, and veggies such as brown rice, black beans, avocado, and chicken.

Because they are becoming a popular way to consume all your necessary food groups, there are a variety of recipes out there, but we have narrowed it down to eight that you should include on your meal prep days. Check them out below!

I'm not on social media, so some things I miss when they are trending. Take the #HurtBae hashtag that went viral a couple of years ago. I just saw all of the videos recently. Whew. If you're not familiar with the backstory, there's a platform called Iris that featured a former couple—Kourtney and Leonard. The first six-minute-and-some-change video consisted of them discussing/processing the ending of their relationship (according to Leonard, he slept with so many other women while they were together that he lost count). The second five-minute-and-some-change video was about Kourtney talking about the first video going viral and how it literally changed her life overnight. The final a-little-over-seven-minutes video brought Kourtney and Leonard back together, a year later, to see where things stood (Leonard, Leonard, Leonard).
