Cold Salmon Sushi Bowl
Sushi bowls can be eaten hot or cold. In this case, we’ve gone for cold so its a fuss free meal prep option. This healthy idea is packed with flavour and full of nutrients including antioxidant superfoods such as salmon, avocado, cucumber and carrot. We’ve opted for brown rice for extra fibre and a sprinkle of sesame seeds which are an excellent source of mangnesium and calcium, both of which help your bones grow healthy and strong. 
If salmon isn’t for you, or you work in one of those “don’t bring fish into the office” environments, teriyaki chicken, tofu, or soy sauce marinated vegetables will be just as delicious. 
 
Homebake Breakfast Hack
Pancakes are a favorite in most households, however everyone has their own favourite toppings. With this one sheet pan pancake, you can choose as many toppings/combinations as you like. Think banana and chocolate, lotus biscoff, nutella and strawberries, or even just plain blueberries with a squeeze of lemon. This 20 minute recipe will ensure someone doesn’t have to stand in the kitchen flipping the pancakes while the earlier ones get cold. Instead, this hack will change the way you eat pancakes forever!  
 
We can’t wait to see your delicious creations. 
Pink Pasta (vego)
We saw this delicious recipe on the wishbone kitchen and had to make it ourselves. The garnish of feta cheese, chopped pistachios, and fresh mint really rounds out the root vegetable taste. It’s the perfect balance. This date night, meatless dish is under $15 and bound to impress anyone. The pistachios can be swapped for cashews or walnuts and if you aren’t a fan of mint then basil would work perfectly.  
The viral baked feta pasta has some competition on their hands…
