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

“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.”

“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!”

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“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.”

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“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.”

“We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into getting this emergency shipment of water to our Waco, Tx office. As always, you guys pulled out all the stops and did everything possible to help! I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but our employees in TX that need drinking water are truly grateful. I feel so fortunate to work with such true professionals. I think you set the bar that your competition wishes they could match!”

“The roasted tofu/noodle/edamame arugula salad with cabbage, carrots and red peppers was something that I would buy from a restaurant or food truck without question. It would win best school lunch in the U.S. without a doubt if there was such a competition! The textures and flavors were a perfect blend, tied together by an excellent dressing. I don't think anyone would be mad if that popped up on the menu every week. Thanks again to you and your staff for such high-quality food!”

“Thank you for all the accommodations for food intolerances and allergies.  I continue to hear positive comments about the quality of the food and the options. Please pass along our thanks and gratitude to your whole team!!!!”
