A healthy delicious Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Buddha Bowl inspired by Middle-Eastern and Fall flavors.

Confession. I’ve spent hours on Instagram looking up Buddha Bowls, or anything else for that matter.

Sometimes I spend so much time on social media that I literally have no time to do anything else and I wonder why I can’t get things done. I have an addiction and I feel as though my life is passing me by. It’s totally a love hate relationship.Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Buddha Bowl

Some days I am so thankful for social media because I’m never really bored, I mean, I always have feeds to checkout, blogs to read, recipes to discover, people to interact with that I “think” I already know. Other times I absolutely can’t stand that I managed to waste 2 hours on Instagram alone!Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Buddha Bowl

My laundry keeps piling up, my blog timings are all over the place, I’m behind on sleep, and let’s not forget, I have a wedding to plan… which by the way I totally get ideas for from Pinterest and Instagram.Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Buddha Bowl

The way I see it, social media can’t be all that bad since I’ve been inspired by countless number of people on how to eat better, how to prepare quick and healthy meals, and just knowing there are others out there who share similar passions. It’s helped me become more aware of things I eat which brings me to the following recipe.Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Buddha Bowl

At first I was so intimated to make a Buddha Bowl, more so because of the beautiful creations I saw on Instagram that I found difficult to replicate. The key is to simply prep the ingredients and add them to a bowl without worrying too much about presentation, that is until you’ve learned the art of making a Buddha Bowl.Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Buddha Bowl

Here is a delicious Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Buddha Bowl inspired by fall and middle-eastern flavors. It’s vegan, gluten free, and so healthy. Enjoy!Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Buddha Bowl
