Buddha bowls are big right now, and it's easy to see why. They're delicious, nutritious and fun to make. It doesn't hurt that they look beautiful, too! CHICKPEAS: 1 1/2 cup chickpeas (15.5 ounce can) 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 to 1 tablespoon liquid smoke 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika 1. Pre-heat the oven to 425° Fahrenheit. 2. LEMON TAHINI DRESSING: 3/4 cup tahini 2/3 to 3/4 cup water 3 to 4 tablespoons lemon juice 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon minced garlic Salt and pepper, to taste 1. BUDDHA BOWL: Whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, etc.) Smoky chickpeas Vegetables Healthy fats (avocado, almonds, etc.) Lemon tahini sauce 1.

To construct your Buddha bowl, combine whole grains, healthy fats and vegetables of your choice. Ideas for veggies include leafy greens, carrots, broccoli and sprouts. Add the smoky chickpeas, tahini sauce and a sprinkle of sesame seeds (optional).

Combine all of the ingredients in a high- powered blender. For a thicker sauce, use 2/3 cup water. For a thinner sauce, use 3/4 cup or more. You can also adjust the lemon juice, garlic and spices according to your taste buds. Blend until smooth. To store leftover tahini sauce, use an air-tight container and keep in the refrigerator.

In a bowl, toss the chickpeas with the oil, liquid smoke and spices. Add more or less liquid smoke based on your preference. Transfer the chickpeas on to a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until crispy, tossing once halfway through.



EIGHTNO-FAILGREYPAINT COLOURS If you’re neither a paint it white or paint it black kind of person – give grey a try. Grey is known for its chameleon-like ability to change as a space changes. Grey walls in a room filled with white furniture and soft textiles becomes a relaxing neutral, while grey in a room filled with bold accent colours becomes bold itself. Yet, as in many other areas of life – there are just so many choices. But never fear – top designers have revealed these eight shades as their go-to grey paints. 1.

QUOTE “Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead. Walk beside me… just be my friend.” – Albert Camus (Born in 1913, Albert Camus was a French philosopher, author, and journalist. His views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as absurdism. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature at the age of 44 in 1957, the second youngest recipient in history.)

HOWGENZDISCOVERSMUSIC How people have discovered music throughout the generations may have changed, yet a love of music and the importance of it in a young person’s life remains. Perhaps members of Generation Z – meaning people born after 1996 – don’t buy vinyl albums or CDs anymore, but they have a multitude of possibilities when it comes to finding new music. Many Gen Z-ers use social media to learn about songs and artists that are on the rise. YouTube is also a popular way to find new tunes, and the fact that most songs are accompanied with music videos allow fans to feel even more connected to musicians. Streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify keep a steady feed of new music flowing into those white earbuds, but don’t think young people only go online to find music. Many say they still listen to the radio, which gives them access to the most popular music of the day, which they can then stream or download in any manner they choose.
