THE SUSHI BURGER

The burger has been the symbol of junk food for years, but now there are new, creative ways of transforming traditional burgers into healthy alternatives. What’s the latest sensation straight from Asia?  The sushi burger, as the name suggests, is an exciting mix of the American and Japanese cuisines.

It is simple to make: switch the classical hamburger buns for sticky rice, then add some traditional Japanese veggies such as avocado, cucumber, pickled ginger or seaweed before adding the meat or chicken burger.  Or try the vegetarian alternative by replacing meat with ‘jackfruit’.

THE SMOOTHIE BOWL

Simple and fast to make, smoothie bowls are a great healthy helper for women on the run.

What you do: Prepare a creamy smoothie, pour it in a hollow dish, then add some of your favorite fruits and extras like sesame seeds, goji berries, figs, blueberries or bananas. The most important aspect is to take real pleasure in eating your express breakfast, the taste and how colorful it looks. Nothing better to get your day off to a great start!
