Kitchen adventures: easy breakfast bowls

Freshly picked strawberries and greens become a breakfast smoothie bowl

Breakfast doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming to put together.  Using what you have on hand can make a hearty healthy breakfast in no time.  I love mixing lots of different textures in my bowl for a satisfying start to the day.

Here are two different bowls of goodness that don't really need a recipe and can be put together quickly with ingredients you have on hand:

Smoothie bowl

A favorite is a smoothie bowl like the one pictured above.  The base is a thick fruit and vegetable smoothie (whatever is your favorite blend)..  This one the smoothie is made from greens, strawberries, protein powder, almond milk, frozen bananas and maca powder. The toppings are fresh strawberries, chia seeds, homemade granola, cocao nibs, hemp seeds and a drizzle of agave nectar.

Hearty oatmeal

A more traditional breakfast is oatmeal.  This one is dressed up with some of my favorite toppings.

Oatmeal bowl

  • oatmeal (either cooked oats or raw soaked in almond or other milk overnight)
  • top with your favorite fruits, nuts, seeds, sweetener and milk

The bowl pictured above is oatmeal cooked with cinnamon, flax seeds and vanilla extract.  The toppings are blueberries, pecans, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut and a drizzle of maple syrup

Here are a couple of other quick breakfasts from previous posts:

Green Smoothie
Overnight oat and chia seed pudding
Sweet potato mousse

Having a good breakfast doesn't have to take too much time to put together to keep you fueled to tackle your morning.

Thanks for reading!
