Healthy Breakfast Bowls

Healthy Breakfast Bowls

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!

Yogurt Bowl

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!
