The January Buddha Bowl
Sometimes called a "Hippie" or "Glory" bowl, a Buddah bowl is basically just a giant bowl filled with a mixture of veggies, grains, greens, nuts/seeds and and topped with a delicious dressing. As part of my January fridge clean out, I work on my cupboards too, by cooking up bit packages of grains, toasting opened packages of nuts and seeds and keeping them in the fridge or jars (in the case of nuts/seeds) for easy assembly of a simple but tasty bowl meal.

On top of all of this, Donna-Marie is also in the process of moving her home of 24 years. She and her husband are downsizing, so cleaning out the freezer is doubly important. She pulled together this chili for a weeknight meal with what she had in her pantry, refrigerator and freezer. For a vegan version, skip the meat and dairy topppings and substitute more vegetables such as mushrooms and eggplant.
