It’s easy to fall into the rut of having toast, cereal and oatmeal or other grains for breakfast. While these can be healthy choices, warmer seasons are the perfect time to get creative, and these bowls will help you do that. From a raw, creamy fruit bowl to a lightened-up version of a classic dish (Cheesy Grits with Bacon!), these grain-free breakfast bowls will fill you up and keep you moving through your morning.
Cheesy Cauliflower “Grits” with Bacon
Growing up, my grandpa made me a hot breakfast most mornings I can remember during high school. Grits or Cream of Wheat and bacon, along with creamy scrambled eggs, were staples. For some reason, there were always green onions and sliced tomatoes, and to me, the green onion in this lightened-up breakfast bowl speaks of southern welcome on a spring morning. This dish is easy to make on a morning, but to save even more time, it heats well when stored, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for two to three days. Get the recipe.
Cheesesteak Egg Scramble Bowl
When our family moved to the Jersey shore a few years ago, we fell in love with the cheesesteak. This bowl has all the classic flavors, making for a hearty breakfast. Get the recipe.
Banana Cream Monkey Bowls
A no-cook breakfast can be filling and refreshing on a weekend or, because it’s so fast, any work or school day! The nuts and oil add substance, and the cinnamon plays perfectly off the sweet fruits. Get the recipe.
