Main Squeeze Buddha Bowl

The Buddha Bowl is a favorite at Main Squeeze.

If you're looking to start your week off on a healthy note, you can't go wrong with just about anything on the Main Squeeze menu.

The downtown Columbia, Missouri, spot, which has been a favorite for vegetarian and vegan diners for over 20 years, reopened its doors earlier this summer after a brief temporary closure due to COVID-19. This is good news for fans of its burritos, sandwiches, wraps and fresh-squeezed juices and smoothies, which use as much local, organic produce as possible.

The bright and colorful Buddha Bowl, which is both gluten-free and vegan, is a go-to for a reason. Loaded with rice, tofu, broccoli, carrots, scallions and sprouts with a generous drizzle of sesame-ginger sauce, it makes for a satisfying lunch. Pair it with a glass of the popular Ring of Fire juice (made with apple, orange, beet and ginger) and you'll be able to take on whatever the week throws your way.
