Adelaide CBD Lunches - Healthy options for getting your ‘2 & 5’

Adelaide CBD Lunches - Healthy options for getting your ‘2 & 5’

We all know that eating nutritious food is good for us and the Australian Government recommends that adults eat at least 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables per day. However, on a rushed lunch break it can be hard to find healthy options to grab on the go.

Here are our picks for takeaway bowls of rainbow goodness in the Adelaide CBD - all of which will be packaged up for you in a sustainable and ethical manner.

Juice Lovers Juicery - Regent Arcade, 34 Grenfell St, Adelaide SA 5000
Juice Lovers

Tucked away down Regent Arcade, this vegan-friendly cafe only uses fresh, organic and local produce. Their affordable and filling lunch options include an ever changing selection of plant-based burgers, hot pot, wraps and whole food bowls, which can be eaten at the cafe or ordered to take away. They also have a huge range of nourishing juices, smoothies and snacks if you feel like a tasty treat on the side. 

Whole Food Bowl at Juice Lovers Juicery $13.90

Juice Lovers Juicery's 'Whole Food Bowl' option on our most recent lunch visit, came with an array of fresh vegetables, marinaded tofu, hearty brown rice and tangy tamari vinaigrette.

Bowlsome - 12 Franklin St, Adelaide SA 5000
Bowlsome (Franklin St)

After opening their flagship store at Henley Beach last year, Bowlsome have since expanded and can now also be found at Burnside Village and Franklin Street in the Adelaide CBD. Their wholesome bowls can be ordered from a chef curated menu or you can get creative and pick and choose from their large range of proteins, veggies, broths and dressings. If you’re looking for a healthy way to start your day, their breakfast bowls and sweet kefir bio bowls are available from 8am.

'Build Your Own' bowl at Bowlsome $15.00

On The Chopping Board (OTCB) have made frequent lunch time trips to Bowlsome, as their huge range of combinations can be easily tailored to your cravings on the day. On this particular visit, we decided to build our own bowl and enjoyed some turmeric cauliflower rice, hot smoked salmon, roasted and sauteed vegetables with a miso and roasted sesame dressing and a warming sprinkle of dried chili. 

Poke Me - 92 Gawler Pl, Adelaide SA 5000
Poke Me

A fantastic option if you would like to choose your own adventure, Poke Me (pronounced ‘poh-kay’) starts from a healthy mixed-grain rice, green tea soba noodles, turmeric quinoa or a vegetable base to which you then add your choice of delicious and unique ingredients. Their Asian-influenced menu items include Tasmanian salmon, slow cooked pulled pork, edamame, kimchi and kinoko-seasoned mushrooms. If you're a little tired of sushi, but still want some fresh Japanese flavours, this is the lunch venue for you. 

'Build Your Own' bowl at Poke Me $15.90

On our most recent visit to Poke Me we built our own bowl with the Tasmanian salmon and especially enjoyed the bright tasty toppings of pickled radish, nori and seven-spice.
