Using fresh, colourful and in season ingredients, this Spring Nourish Bowl is what healthy, happy food is all about. Think bright Spring inspired colours, lots of fresh flavour, wholefoods that nourish and a bowl of healthy food that is almost too pretty to eat.

Nutrition Tips

To make a nutritionally balanced nourish bowl you want to include a few kew components:
1/2 plate low starchy vegetables (provides fibre, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants)
1/4 plate complex carbohydrates (for energy and nutritional balance)
1/4 plate protein (for satiety and to keep you fuller longer and reduce cravings)
Healthy fats (for slow burning energy, to keep you satisfied and help keep cravings away)

To the above as you’ll see in this Spring Nourish Bowl Recipe below you can include “add-ons” as boosters to your nourish bowl.
Such as:
Sauerkraut, kimchi or fermented vegetables (for gut health providing a source of probiotics)
Sesame seeds, pepitas, chopped nuts (added crunch texture and vitamins and minerals, particularly zinc, magnesium and calcium)
Fresh herbs (for freshness and micronutrients)
Shredded nori (seaweed) – a source of iodine

Healthy Dressings

To make this Spring Nourish Bowl extra special and healthy I’ve made two delicious dressings to accompany; a beetroot hummus and turmeric tahini dressing. These are both incredibly easy to make in my Vitamix Ascent Series Blending Bowls.

Recipe Variations

Depending on what’s available to you and what your favourite foods are, you can personalise this recipe to your liking or nutritional needs. The best part about a recipe like this is you’ll never get bored. The combinations are endless.
