Healthy Lunch Bowls

Healthy Lunch Bowls

Now I don’t want to brag or anything but thanks to my Mum, who taught me well, I have always been known for my healthy and colourful lunches.

At first glance it might probably look a bit overwhelming, too many ingredients and not enough time but please trust me on this, once you get the staples you are set for a week of easy, healthy and very versatile lunches!

My lunches always contain a mix of vegetables, protein, good quality carbs and healthy fats.  I always find that after these lunches I avoid the 3pm energy slump I would have experienced if I grabbed something out on the run.

To make the lunch bowl:

  • Add as much vegetables as your heart desires.  Aim for it to be as colourful as possible.  I always add a base of spinach/broccolini/asparagus and then throw in veggies like grated carrot, chopped red onion, capsicum, mushrooms, beetroot, sweet corn, tomatoes and celery.
  • Add 1 cup of wholegrain carbohydrates.  My favourites are brown rice cups from the supermarkets (so easy for those days when you don’t have the time).  I also make wholemeal wraps or sandwiches on sourdough bread.  Say no more.
  • For my protein I like to vary it each day.  My favourites include boiled eggs, tinned tuna, smoked salmon, left over chicken from the night before and quinoa.
  • Lastly and probably my favourite, the good fats.  For this I love chucking in avocado, feta/goats or cheddar cheese and hummus.

Say goodbye to boring school and work lunches and hello to this bowl of wholesome goodness!
