Baby Spinach Nourish Breakfast Bowl

Not many people think of salad for breakfast, but it can be a delicious and fabulous way to get your first servings of greens of the day. Spinach is densely nutritious providing a hearty dose of dietary fibre and many essential nutrients. Personally, I love eating it raw rather than sauteed, so a small nourish bowl like this is often on my breakfast menu.

Dark, leafy greens like spinach, are highly beneficial for your skin, hair, and bone health. Greens provide a wholefood-based source of trace protein, iron, and other minerals. Spinach is also high in dietary fibre and water, both of which promote good gut health and support the digestive tract's function.

The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend that most adults should eat at least 5-6 servings of vegetables every day. By adding salad to your breakfast menu each week, you'll have already had your first serving before tea time!

Baby Spinach Nourish Breakfast Bowl


  • 1 cup baby spinach, organic, rinsed

  • 1-2 eggs, free-range, organic

  • 2 tbsp chickpeas, rinsed

  • 1/2 Hass avocado, sliced

  • 1 lemon wedge, for flavouring

  • salt and pepper to taste


In a small serving bowl, add the freshly rinsed spinach, and place the sliced avocado on top. Add the chickpeas. Hard-boil the eggs using a timer, usually 1-12 minutes. Cut in half and add to the bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and squeeze the lemon over the greens.

Batch Cook Recipe

This recipe is already pretty fast to make, but you can batch cook the eggs ahead of time, and have them ready to grab and go. Hard-boiled eggs are best kept in the fridge after cooling. Keep them in their shells until you need to serve them. I like to keep mine inside an egg carton or air-tight container. If the eggs have already been removed from their shells, keep them moist with a damp paper towel before placing them in a sealed container. Consume within a day or so.

Healthy Salad Topping Ideas

Honestly, I wouldn't add much more to this salad as I enjoy it as is, but you can definitely add your own spin on this basic recipe. Some deliciously good wholefood topping ideas include a little crunchy bacon, crumbled feta and pomegranate seeds, caramelised onions, leftover sweet potatoes, or try shredded chicken or seasoned mince.
