Breakfast is the perfect time to pack in nutrients and protein to get your day started. Breakfast bowls are quick, easy, and require very little preparation.
It begins with a standard base of non-fat Greek yogurt with a teaspoon of unfiltered, raw honey. It’s just sweet enough to offset the natural tartness. The toppings are seasonal and spontaneous — up to you and your pantry offerings. A healthy balance of fruits, grains, and fibers will kick start a productive day.
Feel free to get creative with different types of granola. A homemade baked mix of raw oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon can spice it up. Experiment with fresh, dried, or frozen fruits to add more color and texture. Chia seeds and nuts are another great source of protein. With tons of different combinations, you can try something new everyday!
