A top Australian nutritionist has revealed the recipe to her delicious and healthy Mexican nourish bowl.

Jessica said the dish can also be made vegan-friendly by using a plant-based yoghurt and cheese or by taking off these extras.

The bowl appears to contain corn chips, lettuce, corn, chopped cherry tomatoes, black beans, jalapenos, cucumber, home-made guacamole, cheese and yoghurt.

One woman said she was tempted to swap the yoghurt out for a light sour cream.

‘I’m sure that defeats the purpose though,’ she added.

But Jessica told her to try both and see what she prefers.

Jessica is the founder of global vitamin company JSHealth and often shares recipes and diet tips online.

Nourish bowls are a popular quick-dinner idea with many nutritionists.

Fitness star Kayla Itsines shared her tips to make the bowls recently.

The 29-year-old mum from Adelaide says nutritional bowls can be made quickly and easily, and can even include leftovers from the night before.

The fitness influencer posted a photo of one of her healthy bowls loaded with rice, black beans and tomatoes on Instagram.

‘I love eating like this because it means you get to try a variety of different flavours and textures and you can use both fresh and cooked ingredients,’ she said.

The bowl she posted also included tofu but she said it could be substituted with a favourite protein or vegetable.

‘I also love that you can eat this either as a bowl or mix it up and serve it in a taco shell or with your favourite flat bread to make a healthy wrap,’ she said.

Kayla shared some simple tips to building the ultimate healthy bowl in her post as well.

She said there should be leafy greens included as well as your favourite protein.

Adding extra vegetables like snap peas, radish, green beans, broccoli was also recommended.

What are Kayla Itsines’ tips for nourishing bowls?

1. Start with a leafy green. I like romaine lettuce or baby spinach or you could even try kale. 

2. Choose a protein that you like – why not try beans or tofu, or if you eat meat or fish choose your favourite.

3. Add some extra veggies like cucumbers, zucchini (courgette), snap peas, radish, green beans, broccoli or cauliflower.

4. Try to include some healthy fats. I like avocado, olive oil, olives and nuts for crunch.

5. Load in some extra flavour. I love making a homemade salad dressing with crushed garlic and olive oil. I also love to add chilli flakes and fresh lime to add some extra kick.

She also said it’s important to try to include some healthy fats in the bowl, which could include avocado or olive oil.

And her fans were on board with the idea.

‘This looks so good and is such an easy idea, thank you so much,’ one woman asked.

‘This looks so delicious while still being healthy,’ said another.

‘I also love that you can eat this either as a bowl or mix it up and serve it in a taco shell or with your favourite flat bread to make a healthy wrap,’ she said

The post attracted more than 16,000 likes in a matter of hours and dozens of comments some featured others’ own favourite nourishing bowl recipes.

‘My favourite ever had lettuce, crispy fried falafels, cucumber, mung beans, avocado, and a creamy aioli, citrus and olive oil dressing,’ one woman wrote.

The 29-year-old recently revealed the exact exercises she does to maintain her ripped physique. She shared a video with her 17,000 TikTok followers and demonstrated how to do each exercise.


In the video Kayla began the two-minute routine by completing a round of bent-leg jackknife leg raises (pictured). For added resistance, she held a dumbbell and brought her knees up to her chest to perform the ab crunch

The workout routine incorporates four exercises that only need to be done for a total of 30 seconds each. 

In the video Kayla began the two-minute routine by completing a round of bent-leg jackknife leg raises.

For added resistance, she held a dumbbell and brought her knees up to her chest to perform the ab crunch.

Next, with her forearm supporting herself, she held a side plank for 30-seconds, which might be challenging for some.

To maintain her balance Kayla held her opposite arm straight up in the air.

For the remaining two exercises, Kayla completed a round of mountain climbers and another round of half burpees.

The exercise video which was posted on January 27 has since been viewed more than 21,000 times.

‘Going to give this a go now! Need to strengthen my abs again after having a baby,’ one woman wrote.

‘Now I have the reason to be on TikTok again, thanks Kayla,’ another wrote.
