Breakfast bowls are one of the worlds greatest inventions.
It’s no secret that I love bowls and you’ve probably heard me talk about this 100 times. It truly doesn’t matter what food you have on hand, if it’s put together in a bowl with a sauce, it is 100x better. I follow no patterns when it comes to my bowls, I put in a spoonful of whatever I love, and I’m in heaven.
If you’ve followed me for a while then you’ll also know I love some selfcare for mama. It’s sometimes hard to justify carving out time for yourself (cue the “mom guilt”) but it is so essential to being a functional person and a good mom. It’s crazy that we need to remind ourselves sometimes that taking care of ourselves is one part of taking care of the kids.
Put my two loves together: You get Breakfast Bowls.
Famously known as the most important meal of the day, breakfast is my weakness. I looove all breakfast foods, but sometimes mommying through the morning leaves very little time for eating. This is where – you know it – breakfast bowls come in. Loading up a bowl and taking it out the door is made for busy people. At the same time, sitting down and eating a loaded bowl feels like a luxury.
No matter what your morning is like- fast paced or slow, breakfast bowls are IT for you.
My three favorite types:
- Cereal Based
- Smoothie Based
- Protein Filled
Cereal Base: Start off with a base of cereal, granola, overnight oats or chia pudding. (see my recipe here!) Add milk if needed.
Smoothie Base: Make a quick smoothie and add some frozen greens in to get bonus veggies early in the day! I love throwing a bag of spinach in the freezer to always have on hand for smoothies. It’s great to meal prep your smoothies. How? Watch this tutorial below:)
Check out my ultimate smoothie, granola, and chia pudding recipes in my cookbook Prep + Rally: An Hour of Prep, A Week of Delicious Meals!
Use your berries, Banana, drizzled honey, chopped apples or pears, chocolate chips, nuts, and drizzled granola butter. (If you have not tried this then what are you doing?)
Now for the Protein Filled Breakfast Bowl:
Start with a base of cauliflower rice and add any sauteed veggies you can make quickly or have leftover from the fridge. Top with a sunny side up, sliced avocado, dash of lemon and salt, and drizzle with a sauce you have in your fridge.
Add a drop of hot sauce if you are extra spicy this morning. 🌶
When you’re finished grab your bowl and head to the table, couch, or car to enjoy as you start your day!
Please tell me I’m not alone in my love for bowls. Especially breakfast bowls. Feel free to tag me in any of your breakfast creations over on Instagram so I can share with the Prep + Rally family!
