Buddha Bowl Salad

Get ready to dig into something seriously tasty – our Buddha Bowl Salad is making waves on the cleanse menu and for all the right reasons! Packed with protein from quinoa, it’s like a base that’s as satisfying as it gets. We’ve jazzed it up with zesty lemon and orange juices, plus a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, giving your taste buds a reason to celebrate. Crunchy arugula, snappy green beans, and those trusty canned black beans join the party, bringing a mix of textures to the table. We’ve got sun-dried tomatoes for that sweet-savory punch, and pickled red onions that bring the tang. Fresh basil adds a touch of herby goodness, while candied pumpkin seeds give a bit of sweet flair.
