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

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“I can’t thank your entire team enough for the outstanding service, food, displays, everything!  You are a master at detail, and because of that Adam and I were able to focus on the parents.  I know what a sacrifice pulling off a weekend like this means, we are so appreciative and grateful to you all for your talent and generosity.”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“I will say that CulinArt has always been a very collaborative partner to T. Rowe Price, listening to our current needs and future goals and suggesting realistic and achievable strategies to meet those goals.  2020 was obviously no exception.  CulinArt also altered other areas of our OCS and pantry programs to create safer environments for all our associates. We can only thank you for your continued flexibility and innovative ideas through these difficult times.”
