I have recently discovered the joy of breakfast bowls.  They are an incredibly easy way to get loads of grain, veggies, and protein, into your diet without a lot of work.  In fact, you can assemble all the ingredients for several days worth of breakfasts on the weekend. Then eat deliciously every morning for days.  This egg breakfast bowl recipe was a quick and healthy breakfast idea.  Once you have the basics assembled, just fry up one egg in the morning and you are good to go! If you aren’t a quinoa fan, you can serve this with a batch of skillet fried potatoes instead.

The Benefits of Eggs in the Morning

Eggs are a great source of inexpensive, high quality protein.  Eggland’s Best  is an excellent source of vitamins D, B12, E, B5 and riboflavin. They have six times more vitamin D, more than double the Omega-3s, 10 times more vitamin E and 25% less saturated fat than ordinary eggs.
