Bodhi Bowl founder Ali has been a vegan for an impressive 28 years. Her lifestyle has gained her a litany of benefits, both menatlly and physically, and she wants to encourage residents across Los Angeles to embrace the plant-based lifestyle by serving up 100% vegan cuisine. Her belief in compassion for animals extends beyond the menu. If you purchase one of her giving bowls, 10% of the profits go to a local animal shelter. Given Ali’s serving great food for a great cause, you can feel good giving this business your business.
The menu sports a myriad of wholesome fare, but let’s start with the eponymous dish. The bowls here come chock-full of healthy ingredients. Try everything from a base of quinoa mixed with walnut chorizo and pico de gallo to brown rice topped with a mix of veggies sprinkled in Parmesan “cheese” and slathered in Italian dressing. Sweet tooth calling? Try a smoothie, made with all-natural ingredients like fruit, plant-based milks, and herbs. Whatever you choose, it’ll leave your body feeling good. The best part of all though? They cater, so book Bodhi Bowls for your next event. You won’t just be providing fantastic food. You’ll be supporting a business with ethics.

The bodhi tree is the tree of life and the tree that Gautama sat under before he became Buddha. My tagline is enlightened eating.
I started back dishwashing in restaurants about 29 years ago and worked my way up. I did restaurants and then got into private cheffing for about 15 years.
I wanted to introduce people to vegan food at an affordable price.
