Frequently Asked Questions
What Should Go Into A Good Breakfast Bowl?
We like to think of these breakfast bowls as a great way of using up what ingredients and vegetables you have on hand to make something colorful and satisfying.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you could add in some roasted peppers, mushrooms, olives, or anything else you fancy.
Here’s our quick guide for making the best breakfast bowls around:
- Start with the protein. In our case, we went with protein from two different sources – eggs and hummus.
- Make the bowl yours and cook up the eggs however you like. They can be poached, fried, boiled…you name it.
- Add in any number of veggies or fruits. You can go raw or cooked.
How Can You Freeze And Then Reheat Breakfast Bowls?
Breakfast bowls are one of our favorite meal prep recipes because they take less than 5 minutes to prepare and are ready to go in just about 3 hours.
They are great for busy mornings and help us save money since we don’t have to buy ingredients again once they’ve been frozen.
We like to freeze these bowls individually, so we can grab one whenever we’re hungry without having to worry about running out of food. You can also freeze them together in a large container for larger families.
To reheat breakfast bowls from the freezer, simply heat on low power for 20-30 seconds, then stir and continue heating until warmed throughout.
