Breakfast Bowls (Whole30, Paleo, GF, DF)


The day has finally come for me to share my favorite recipe… my breakfast bowls! I make one variation of these or another for breakfast almost every day! They are so easy and can be easily changed to suit your tastes or what you have at home. Easy, nutritious, and delicious- these bowls check all those boxes and I’m so excited to finally share the recipe with y’all.


If you follow me on INSTAGRAM, you know I’m all about bowls and salads because they’re easy to throw together in a pinch. I love these bowls because they have all the components of meals I love: plant based carbs (for satiety), greens, protein, fat, and fiber. I want to share some possible variations with you:

Instead of crispy potatoes, sub sweet potatoes, hash browns (I’ve found the Great Value brand at Walmart is just potatoes as ingredients), plantains, butternut squash... Get creative!

Instead of breakfast sausage, sub maple sausage, bacon, chicken, taco meat, or any leftover protein you have.

Instead of arugula, sub spinach, kale, mixed greens or your greens of choice (other than iceberg).

Instead of a fried egg, add a poached, scrambled, or no egg at all! I am a firm believer in eating the yolk because it is nature’s multivitamin!

You can top with any sauces you might have at home. I love adding salsa, everything but the bagel seasoning, crushed red pepper, cilantro, avocado, pesto, or anything you have that sounds good! You can also add fruit if that’s your thing.


The whole point of these breakfast bowls are make them your own! Sub whatever sounds delicious to know and what your body is asking for! I would love to see how you make them and how they work for you. For a meal prepper, make the protein and carbs ahead of time and then throw it together with your greens and egg quickly.
