Smoothie Bowl 

How about eating your smoothie instead of drinking it? Make this easy bowl, and get the proper nourishment from your most important meal of the day!


  • frozen red berries or smoothie mix 400g 
  • ripe banana 1, peeled 
  • coconut yogurt or greek yogurt 4 tbsp 
  • almond milk 300-400ml 
  • dates 2, pitted and chopped (optional) 
  • blueberries or raspberries
  • chia, pumpkin or hemp seeds
  • goji berries
  • oats or granola
  • dessicated coconut

Method: Blend the frozen berries, banana, yogurt and half the milk in a liquidiser or blender until smooth. Try it, and if it’s not sweet enough, add dates and blend again. It should be thicker than a regular smoothie but runny enough to pour. Add more almond milk a bit at a time to get a pourable smoothie, and divide between small bowls. Top with as many toppings as you like, and serve straight away.

Oatmeal And Egg Bowl

A power-packed brekkie is all we need to get through the day. And this one by Martha Stewart is exactly that!


Method: In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add oats and a pinch of salt; stir, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a small non-stick pan over medium flame. Coat lightly with cooking spray. Add egg and cook until white is set and yolk is still runny, about 3 minutes. Season egg to taste with salt and pepper. Serve oatmeal in a bowl topped with cheese, egg, and scallion greens.

Sweet Potato And Rice Bowl

Perfect meal for the vegetarians in the house, this one will be a major hit at work.


  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (3 to 4 medium sweet potatoes), peeled and sliced into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ½ cups long grain brown rice
  • ¼ cup pepitas (green pumpkin seeds)
  • ¼ teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 avocado, pitted and sliced
  • Jarred mild salsa verde
  • Chopped cilantro

Method: Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the rice and stir to coat. Spread the rice in an even layer on the bottom of the pot and let the rice lightly brown. While the rice cooks, toss the sweet potatoes in the olive oil, smoked paprika and salt until the sweet potatoes are evenly coated in oil. Arrange in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, tossing halfway, until the sweet potatoes are tender and caramelizing at the edges. Fluff the rice with a fork and season with salt if necessary. Remove beans from heat, stir in the vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper.
