Soap Queen Cuisine: Blueberry Breakfast Bowl

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Starting the day with a full stomach helps me to think clearly and maintain energy into early afternoon. Some days it can be hard to make time for breakfast, but I always regret it when I don’t. This recipe takes a little bit of prep, but it’s so worth it!

Made with protein-packed greek yogurt and a variety of nuts, seeds and fruits, this breakfast bowl is full of omega-3 fatty acids. The fresh fruit adds just the right amount of sweetness, but you can add a little honey if you like. Keep in mind the amount of ingredients listed below can easily be adjusted depending on your personal taste. I sometimes like to make this the night before, and throw it in my work bag in the morning.

What You’ll Need: 1 cup plain greek yogurt (I used non-fat) 1 tbs. chia seeds 1/2 tbs. flax seeds 2 tbs. shaved almonds 1/4 cup banana, sliced 1/4 strawberries, sliced 1/4 cup blueberries

ONE: Add the yogurt to your bowl, and stir in the chia seeds. The yogurt provides amazing gut support (all those probiotics aid in digestion) and the chia seeds provide essential fats, like omega-3s to help you curb hunger. TWO: Add the fruit and almonds, and sprinkle the flax seeds on top. If you’d like, drizzle a bit of honey on top. Fruit is good because it’s high in natural sugars (yay! energy boost) and antioxidants and the almonds provide healthy fats and long lasting protein energy. THREE: Stir and enjoy!

What is your favorite healthy breakfast? I’m always looking for new ideas! Bonus points if the kids will love it! =)

    This looks yummy. One of my fave breakfasts is plain yogurt (I use the regular), about 1/2 a crisp apple and a tablespoon of gluten free granola on top. So light and refreshing, I love it.

    In February we attended the wedding celebration of some dear friends at The Arctic Club in Seattle. After a late night that included a decadent wedding supper, champagne, and dancing, we joined the wedding party the next morning for a “brunch.” While the rest of the group ate a traditional brunch, the groom’s mother and I ordered the fruit parfait. It was the most amazing breakfast I’ve ever had. I returned home to Whidbey Island and created my own version, similar to what you eat. Mine includes one cup of whatever fresh fruit I am in the mood for, (usually island blueberries,) Tilamook Vanilla Bean Yogurt, and 1/2 cup Primal Island Grain Free Granola. It’s made here on Whidbey and is the best “granola” I’ve ever had. I’ve used it as a topping for fruit cobbler, and with ice cream, but I love it best right out of the bag or with my breakfast parfait. I’m hypoglycemic, and my homemade breakfast parfait with Primal Island granola balances out my blood sugar perfectly, and can keep me going well after noon if I get busy. Go to the Primal island Facebook page or website for retail locations. This stuff is amazing. (And I’m not related or connected to the company; I just love this granola.) They recently introduced macaroons, but I have hesitated to try them because the calorie content per macaroon is high!
