One of my favorite meals is breakfast. I could eat breakfast for all three of my daily meals! But I’ll admit, sometimes I get in a breakfast slump and eat the same thing every morning. To get out of that slump recently, I decided to create several breakfast bowls – breakfasts that could easily be made in one dish without a lot of hassle. And I loved the results! They were delicious, super easy, and kept me going all morning long.
Here are just a few ideas of nutritious and delicious breakfasts you can create in one bowl. The possibilities are endless!
I love yogurt! I make sure to buy the full-fat, grass-fed (when available) yogurt that is unsweetened. The healthy fat gives it lots of flavor so you don’t need to buy the sweetened kind. I drizzle a little raw honey (for the antioxidants and antimicrobial properties), homemade granola, and blueberries. SO easy and absolutely delicious!
Farmer’s Breakfast Bowl
There’s nothing like a good, hearty breakfast of eggs and sausage to get your day going. To make this dish a little lighter, I bought turkey sausage instead of pork. I added some scrambled eggs, avocado slices and organic Roma tomatoes to round out this delicious breakfast bowl. It was very satisfying, and I loved how colorful my breakfast was!
Green Smoothie Bowl
There are so many different ways you can make a green smoothie bowl. The trick is to make your recipe a little thicker than you normally would so that you can eat it with a spoon. One key ingredient for creating a thicker smoothie is frozen bananas! To this smoothie bowl, I added 1 frozen banana, a handful of frozen spinach, a scoop of vanilla protein powder, and some almond milk. Blend until smooth and thick. Try making a smoothie bowl with your favorite smoothie recipes – just reduce the amount of liquid slightly to help create a thicker blend!
Banana Boat Bowl
I love bananas! I think they get a bad wrap sometimes for being too high in sugar. And although they are higher in sugar than some other fruits, they are still full of beneficial vitamins and minerals – including potassium and magnesium. They are one of my favorite foods to eat before a workout, because they really help with endurance and muscle fatigue. And these banana boats are much healthier than a bowl of sugary cereal! I simply sliced a banana lengthwise, then I drizzled a delicious 2-ingredient sauce (a spoonful of almond butter melted with a teaspoon of coconut oil on the stove) over them, and topped it with a homemade granola. Absolute yum and oh-so-simple!
Okay, I would love your breakfast bowl ideas!
