Recently I have started a new breakfast phase which I have dubbed breakfast bowls. They are comprised of three parts…
Base: some sort of protein-packed pudding/porridge mixture
Middle layer: granola
Toppings: cacao nibs, goji berries, bananas… depends on my mood and what’s available
The base layer can be any slurpy mixture you like. Recently I’ve used the new VegaOne chocolate whole food supplement, chia seeds with almond milk, vanilla Sunwarrior blended up with almond milk and frozen banana, or some Coconut Breeze Boring Porridge. All of these are just bursting with healthy fats, proteins and deliciousness!
For granola, if you don’t have your own homemade granola on hand, I highly recommend getting some Kaia raw chocolate buckwheat granola – I eat the stuff by the handful. It reminds me oddly of Clodhoppers (which I also used to eat by the hand). Otherwise look for a naturally sweetened whole food organic granola (are labels confusing for you? Shoot me an email, let’s talk).
Toppings can be any kind of magical sprinklings you like. Sometimes I go without, depends on the base of my breakfast bowl. Be creative! There are no limits or boundaries, kids.
Abby’s VegaOne Chocolate Breakfast Bowl
½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 scoop chocolate VegaOne powder
1 teaspoon cacao powder
½ frozen banana
2 ice cubes
Pour into a bowl and let it sit for a few minutes. All that nutritious, omega-3 rich flax will thicken up as it stands. Top with granola, and sprinkle with love and cacao nibs. Enjoy and eat slowly with a spoon.
