ELEMENTS

1 cup roasted sweet potato
½ cup of brown rice, cooked
½ cup of Chickpea Crunch
1 tablespoon of sauerkraut
¾ cup of fresh spinach leaves
1 tablespoon of parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon of toasted walnuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds
Salt and pepper to taste

Suitable for:
Lunch | Dinner

METHOD

Place the elements in a gorgeous bowl, serve with our delicious Bestow Turmeric Dressing and enjoy!

NOTES

You will soon pick up the fact that we love sweet potato! It is so versatile and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. Here is one of our favourite ways of cooking it – roasted in the oven so it goes crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. It’s a great element to have in any lunch bowl. Sweet potato is a healthy and sustaining carbohydrate and a good source of Vitamin A, which is one of the six essential nutrients needed for skin health. 

INGREDIENTS

Taste of India Curry (Chicken or Vegetarian/Vegan)

To Serve

¼ cup of slivered almonds, toasted (optional)
Small handful of fresh coriander
½ cup brown rice, cooked
Handful of fresh spinach
1 tablespoon of sauerkraut (optional)

Suitable for:
Lunch | Dinner

METHOD

Re-heat your curry (if desired) then serve over the rice with a sprinkle of almonds and/or coriander. Add spinach and sauerkraut (optional).

NOTES

The beautiful thing about a curry is that the flavour only gets better with time!  As your lunch sat in the fridge overnight it will have marinated in the spices and will be even more flavoursome and tasty today. The brown rice is a great way to boost your vitamin B levels, which are important for skin health.

ELEMENTS

1 serve of Tuscan Soup (either Vegetarian/Vegan or Chicken)

To Serve
2 tablespoons spring onions, sliced
Pepper to taste

Suitable for:
Lunch | Dinner

METHOD

Reheat one serving of Tuscan Soup, top with 1 tablespoon of spring onions and season to taste.

Soup is often better the next day as the flavours have had more time to develop.

NOTES

There is nothing better than warm soup for lunch on a cold day. The delicious smell of this flavoursome soup will tempt those around you for sure!  This recipe includes a generous serving of vegetables – particularly healthy greens.  These provide a large amount of essential nutrients, such as vitamin A and vitamin C, which your skin needs to thrive.

If you have opted to make the vegetarian/vegan version of this soup, you may wish to add more white beans for extra protein. And of course, add more veggies! 

ELEMENTS

1 serve of Slow Cooker Moroccan  
¾ cup of Lemon Turmeric Rice
1 cup of fresh spinach leaves
1 tablespoon of sliced almonds
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh coriander or parsley
1 tablespoon of Bestow Beauty Plus Oil
½ a lemon, juiced

Suitable for:

METHOD

Place rice in the bottom of the jar, then layer spinach on top. Then add the Slow Cooker Moroccan chicken or veg. Lastly add almonds and herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Reheat at lunch time, pour over the Bestow Beauty Plus Oil and lemon juice and enjoy!

Alternatively, if you don’t have a jar serve in a gorgeous bowl!

NOTES

Jars are a great way to tote food to work. They also look amazing and it is an experience in itself eating out of something different. You can do this with any type of meal or layered salad.
