Boost Your Breakfast With These Bowls

Need something new and exciting to jazz up your morning breakfast routine? Why not create your very own breakfast bowl! Easy to grab and go, these bowls can be prepped and packed in advance of your busy morning. From smoothies to quinoa to ordinary cereal, start your day on the right foot with these energizing breakfast bowls.

Smoothie Bowls are a refreshing and creative way to start the morning. The key to delicious smoothie bowl is a good base of frozen fruits and veggies. Here are some of our favorite combos:

  • Strawberry Banana: 1 cup frozen strawberries + ½ banana + ½ cup milk of choice
  • Green Goodness: 1 banana + handful of spinach + ½ avocado + 1 cup milk of choice + ice
  • Chocolate Nut: 1 banana + 2 tbsp nut butter of choice + 2 tbsp cocoa powder + 1 cup milk of choice + ice
  • Berry Blend: 1 cup frozen mixed berries + handful of spinach + 1 cup milk of choice

Blend up these tasty smoothies and top with granola, fresh fruit, chia seeds, or nut butter for a filling breakfast. The best part about these bowls is you can pre-package your smoothie combos in a plastic bag and store in the freezer for future use.

Breakfast Quinoa takes an ordinary bowl of oatmeal up a notch. Quinoa is a complete protein and a good source of fiber, keeping you feeling satisfied and focused all morning. Cook quinoa in your favorite milk beverage for a creamy consistency. Add spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger to enhance the flavor. For a sweet treat in the morning, add cocoa powder, or, make it savory and top your bowl with an egg. Top your bowls with sweet items like sliced banana, a drizzle of honey, chocolate chips, or savory like avocado, or hot sauce. Let your creative juices run wild to create the breakfast quinoa bowl of your dreams.

Oatmeal can be enjoyed warm or cold. Prepare your oatmeal in water or milk – it can be as easy as cooking it in the microwave! For faster cooking, use instant or quick cook oats, since these oats have been more processed and broken down. For a heartier bowl, use rolled oats or steel cut oats. These take longer to cook, have a higher fiber content, and give you a much thicker cereal. For busy mornings, take advance of overnight oats! Combine ingredients like milk, yogurt, fresh fruit, and oats in a container. Shake it up, and leave in the fridge overnight for a yummy breakfast ready to go in the morning.

Cereal is probably the easiest breakfast to prepare – add your favorite cereal to a bowl and top with your milk of choice. But…we can still get creative with this simple breakfast. It’s a great way to sneak in some extra whole grains from the cereal and calcium and vitamin D from the milk. Keep a few of your favorite cereals in the house and mix and match. Combining these flavors will bring your plain old cereal up a level. Don’t forget the toppings! Add nuts, seeds, dried fruit, fresh fruit, and even a drizzle of nut butter to enhance your exciting cereal bowl.

Yogurt comes in a variety of flavors and the parfait options are endless. Layering your parfaits can become a work of art. Start with a layer of yogurt, add in berries, granola, nuts, or dried fruit, and continue the pattern until your bowl is complete. Yogurt is rich in vitamin D and calcium and Greek yogurt is rich in protein. Enjoy these parfaits layer by layer, or mix it all together for a combination of all flavors! For a more “pudding-like” parfait, try mixing chia seeds into your yogurt and letting it sit overnight.

What our clients are saying

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“I'd like to just begin by thanking you for being IMMENSELY better than your predecessors. The food has been lightyears better and even more importantly I find that your staff actually enjoys being here doing what they do!!! I don't even know if I could start my mornings without Stacy and Marcus (and the rest of the gang too!!!) because of the great experience and wonderful food that they help provide for us. Thanks CulinArt!!!”

“We had an incredible Alumnae weekend! All of us in College Advancement are so very pleased with the success of this year’s reunion. We continue to receive positive feedback about the delicious food, the presentation and the service. Thank you so much for lending your expertise and knowledge to this weekend.
