Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl


Man, I am INTO this March Madness business.


I’m in a bracket challenge and I am taking it way too seriously.


Why haven’t I been filling out one of these bad boys for years? My dad loves Bob Knight more than he loves me so basketball is basically in my blood.


Like, I was filling out my bracket and waves of genius just kept crashing over me. I will now share with you my tips.

  1. Upsets are fun because grown men cry so you want to pick as many of these as possible
  2. Cheaters never win – I’m looking at you, Kentucky!
  3. When in doubt, pick Kansas

    I’ll be trying this next week! Anything with quinoa and the word, “bowl” I’ll try. And haha I started doing a bracket challenge with my coworkers last week and I’m still winning! I don’t even watch the basketball, it’s so funny.

    First of all, I love you for putting edamame in this bowl. I would have never thought of that! Second, I went to Texas Tech for undergrad so we had Bobby Knight for a bit too! ❤
