Mediterranean Vegetarian Quinoa & Hummus Buddha Bowl – Weight Watchers 6 Point Buddha Bowl Recipe
I’m done with dieting.
Done. Done. And Done.
I’m done with counting calories. Counting points.
I’m done with measuring. Done with weighing. Done.
I’m done with restricting. I’m done with grazing.
Now, this doesn’t mean I’m going to eat a Big Mac everyday. In fact, quite the opposite.
I’m going vegan. Ish.
My daughter calls me a fake vegan. Which, I suppose, is true.
Because I’m not exactly adopting the whole vegan mindset. I’m just co-opting the food.
It comes down to me liking to eat. A lot. And, with a vegan lifestyle you can eat. A lot. Of food.
I guess technically you could call my new “diet” (which isn’t a diet in the sense of the whole counting/measuring/restricting version) is plant-based.
99% of the time. With the Buddha bowl making up a large portion of my daily food intake.
And now, I digress ….
After my whole no more measuring, counting, weighing rant, I’m going to give you a recipe that not only includes measurements … but also includes Weight Watchers points.
I know, I know.
If we were on Twitter I’d say don’t @ me.
But, technically, Weight Watchers isn’t really a diet. Right? They call it a lifestyle plan.
But mostly I’m giving the Weight Watchers points for this Mediterranean Vegetarian Quinoa & Hummus Buddha Bowl because I’ve already built up … over the years … a pretty extensive library of assorted Weight Watchers recipes. They’re some of my most visited posts, so I don’t want to disappoint.
And let’s face it: just because I’m no loner counting and measuring and weighing and restricting, it doesn’t mean everyone else is. So for those counting and measuring etc. etc., I’ll offer some counting and measuring … and Weight Watchers points … for this Buddha bowl recipe.
