Need A Cleanse? Try A Rainbow Abundance Bowl!

This easy, covers-all-nutrition-bases recipe is from our latest health obsession, the Totally BUF book from former Biggest Loser trainer, Libby Babet and her BUF Girls team.

 

The chicken is optional – you can leave it out or replace it with avocado if you really want to amp up the antioxidant factor after a few big days (or nights!).

 

BUF Girls’ Tip: The cinnamon and olive oil in the dressing are particularly anti-inflammatory, so don’t be afraid to drizzle generously.

 

What You’ll Need (Serves 2)

 

B

  • 2 cups of pumpkin, cut into cubes
  • 2 cups rocket
  • 1 capsicum, diced
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, diced
  • 1 lemon

 

 

U

  • 200g chicken breast, cut into small pieces OR quarter to half avocado
  • 1/2 cup quinoa

 

F

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • sea salt and pepper

 

What You’ll Do

 

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a tray with baking paper.
  2. In a bowl, toss the pumpkin cubes and chicken with the olive oil, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Place the pumpkin and chicken on the lined tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  4. To cook the quinoa, add 1/2 cup quinoa and 1 cup of water to a saucepan and bring to the boil. Once, boiling, turn the heat down to a simmer and cook with the lid on for 15 minutes, until the water has absorbed and quinoa is cooked. You may need to add extra water. (Yields 1 1/2 cups of cooked quinoa).
  5. Once all the cooked elements are complete, it’s time to build your bowl!
  6. Arrange the rocket, capsicum, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, chicken, pumpkin, quinoa and avocado in your bowl. Finish with a drizzle of tahini and a squeeze of lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
