Breakfast Power Bowl


Guess what? Earlier this year, after 4 years livin' out my momma's house, I finally realized that making a good ole' hearty breakfast is actually a BIG DEAL and it NEEDS TO BE DONE. Ever heard of the phrase, 'eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper'? Well, that is definitely one of my secrets to staying in shape - breakfast is everything! But having the right breakfast, with enough protein, vitamins, and super food is KEY - as that will set you up and get you going for the rest of the day. Here's a super easy (I hate to call this a 'recipe' as there's not much work to do) recipe for a mega-power breakfast:
