It’s coming to that time when many of us are heading back to work and looking for healthy lunch options after a season of festivities. This lunch bowl of goodness will help you feel amazing and super focussed at work in no time!

It’s super easy to make the components in batches and pack into containers for lunches/dinners throughout the week!

Recipe Type: GF, DF, RSF

Serves 1, individual lunch-sized salads

Time  15 min


  • washed leaves from 3 stalks of kale
  • a handful of steamed broccoli florets
  • 1/4 of an Avocado
  • 1/3 C cooked quinoa (cooked in organic bone broth)
  • 1/3 C roast pumpkin pieces or 3-4 cherry tomatoes
  • 5 cm length of cucumber, sliced 
  • 100g grilled Australian barramundi or your favourite fish
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 T EVOO
  • 1 T Hilbilby Fire Tonic or Raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • salt and pepper



  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the EVOO, Fire Tonic, juice of 1/2 the lemon, garlic, salt and pepper.
  2. Marinate the kale leaves with the EVOO mixture, use your hands to make sure the kale is well-coated.
  3. In another small bowl, mash the avocado with the rest of the lemon juice, salt and pepper with a fork.
  4. Now it’s time to arrange in a big bowl! It’s totally your prerogative here so have fun! I like to place the kale down first then the broccoli, cucumber, roast pumpkin, quinoa, fish and top with the smashed Avo!
  5. Yummo!
