37 healthy breakfast bowls that you’ll want to make right now!
No matter your taste, making healthy breakfast bowls has never been easier. I think breakfast bowls, or brekkie bowls as I like to call them, are wonderful, because they can be whatever you want them to be – easy, simple, complex, indulgent, sweet, savoury, etc. The possibilities are endless, really.
My one simple rule is that breakfast must be healthy, easy to make, and delicious. I’ve put together a collection of recipes in this post that are guaranteed to make you drool. You’ll find it hard to believe that some of them are good for you too, but they are – they all are!
By now you know that I have high standards when it comes to healthy ingredients. At the same time, I like no fuss recipes that are easy to make. Faffing around in the kitchen for too long takes all the fun out of it.
Free brekkie challenge
My motivation for compiling this collection of healthy breakfast bowls is to give some fresh inspiration to my brekkie challengers.
The free 2-week Brekkie Challenge runs several times each year. You can get more info on the BREKKIE CHALLENGE PAGE.
