Wholesome Bowls for the Soul

Thanks to social media, bowl food has almost become a cuisine of its own. Burrito bowls, sushi bowls, Buddha bowls, smoothie bowls, acai bowls…. You name it, someone has turned it into the ultimate easy and Instagrammable meal option, packed with flavour (and the added benefit of less washing up!).

The Farm Wholefoods in Gasworks may be a new contender to the Brisbane food scene, but they are relative heavy weights in the world of nourishing bowl food.

Offering a bounty of beautiful bowls for breakfast and lunch to suit most dietary requirements, the offerings at The Farm Wholefoods are sure to cause lunch envy amongst your work colleagues as you forgo the soggy sandwich and questionably odorous Tupperware for a vibrant and tasty salad instead!

Far from just leafy greens, these are bowls that will leave you full enough to dodge the 3pm biscuit binge in the office tea room. Enrich your soul with the Nourish bowl, with chicken, slaw, sweet potato, quinoa, pesto and avocado.

Swap your bacon and egg muffin for the Earthy bowl with scrambled eggs, bacon, rocket, smashed sweet potato and tomatoes. Live life lush with the Luxe bowl, a feast of poached eggs with salmon, kale, avocado, quinoa and goat cheese. Or for something a little different, try the Bento bowl with salmon, soba noodles, pickled ginger and edamame.

There’s also the chicken burrito bowl, the vegan bowl and a pulled pork feast bowl to tempt you. If you’re after a lunch you can wrap your fingers around, grab one of their paninis, loaded with tuna, chicken, ham or salmon with all the trimmings.

For the ultimate grab and go breakfast, their chia pots, porridge and Bircher muesli make for a great alternative to sugar laden cereal (sorry Fruit Loops). The coffee and cold press juice are seriously on point – as are their luxurious healthy smoothies like the raw choc, peanut butter protein or caramel chai.

The Farm Wholefoods proves that eating healthy doesn’t have to be chore. Swap boring for brilliant and take a trip to The Farm instead!
