Dump the Salad!

HOT AND TRENDING – for all the health nuts:

We’re dumping salads for power bowls

Power bowls, not a brand new trend but definitely the hot trend right now, are taking over breakfast, lunch and dinner.  It’s not only the bowl of goodness itself that is the attraction… It’s the way they’re filled with a combination of lean protein, healthy vegetables and tasty dressings for a nourishing, well-balanced, eye-candy meal.  

And, it all starts with the right superfood base…

Choose whether or not you would like a hot or cold meal and then determine the base. Tipiak Gourmand Quinoa is a great base because it is not only versatile enough to be included on breakfast, lunch and dinner menus; it can also be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge so you simply need to add the toppings!

…then add layers of flavour.

One benefit of making your own power bowls is that they can be personalised for occasions and taste. For example, dinner can start with quinoa as a base and finish with an ostrich fillet, snowpeas and a poppyseed dressing whilst you simply need to add fresh fruit and yoghurt for breakfast.

So now that you know the drill, try these power bowls for taste.

More inside track info:

  1. Stafford Bros and Draeger are the exclusive South African importers of the Tipiak range of fragrant quinoa and couscous options. They taste as delicious cold as they do hot.
  2. Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and contains iron, B-vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, vitamin E and fiber. It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein and comprised of all pernine essential amino acids.Source:
  3. Power bowls are all-in-one meals presented in a bowl comprised of a grain (often quinoa, noodles, brown rice, or another whole grain), a variety of chopped vegetables, meat or beans, and a tasty sauce to tie it all together.
