Power Bowls – Perfect for Campervan Life

Just thought I’d share with you a meal that is ideal for when you are out in the campervan. Not only is it really easy, tasty and flexible, it’s healthy too! It’s called the Power Bowl (sometimes the Buddha Bowl) and it is a perfectly balanced meal that you assemble from a wide range of ingredients.

You will need a pasta-style bowl as you’ll want something big enough to hold your whole meal (less washing-up, yay!) and you can include anything you want really, but there is a general template to follow…

Campervan Recipes: Saturday Night, 'Strictly' and a Sponny Risotto!

Campervan Life: Yay – The Camper Cookie Book makes the Local Press!

Just wanted to say thank you to Marion Sauvebois from the Swindon Advertiser for her nice feature on my recipe book with a bit of my life story.

Campervan Recipes: Healthy Oatmeal Muffins

Another great recipe from Kim’s Cravings. I love the simplicity of this muffin recipe and the fact that it is healthy and filling too (oats are loaded with Beta Glucan which is brilliant for maintaining a healthy immune system).

They are just great for a good campervan breakfast before you start the day’s adventures and they can also be made with gluten-free oats so good for those of us who can’t do gluten.

As most of us don’t have ovens in our campers, it is a Bake-Before-You-Go recipe but they freeze well so you can just throw them in the van before you start out. Enjoy…
