Eggs and Greens Buddha Bowl

Everyone loves big Buddha bowls because they allow for so many different flavors, textures, and nutrients in one bowl. This one is simple yet nutrient-dense, with an array of greens, olive oil, avocado, eggs, and seeds.
Buddha bowl to heal a leaky gut
  • Makes 2 servings
  • Prep Time 5 minutes
  • Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 4 tbs. olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. ground pork or turkey sausage
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups torn spinach leaves
  • 2 cups torn arugula leaves
  • 2 cups torn kale leaves
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • Scallions, sliced, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat.
Add the sausage and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, for 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the sausage to a bowl.
In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat.
Add the eggs, and scramble them until cooked to your liking. Transfer to the bowl with the sausage.
In the same pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over medium heat.
Add the spinach, arugula, and kale, and sauté until wilted, for 3 to 5 minutes.
Build each bowl by placing the greens on the bottom, followed by the sausage, and finally, the eggs. Add avocado, scallions, and sesame seeds to taste, and season with salt and pepper.
Did you know? The traditional Buddha bowl is vegetarian. This one uses meat, but if you’d like to keep it traditional, simply remove the meat and add extra greens, avocado, and sesame seeds. And of course, you can prepare the eggs any way you like, such as over easy.
