Bowl # 2
Jen- Jen's Daily

Here is my entry for the breakfast bowl :)

Steel cut oats
Coconut milk
Protein Powder
Chia Seeds

Topped with lemon curd and sliced banana

Bowl # 3
Bradi- Branappetit

Okay, here are my two favorite breakfast bowls to date! 

1. Banana Split: 1 banana, 1/2 cup oatmeal cooked with 1 cup water and cinnamon, topped with 1 Tbsp peanut butter, strawberries, and dark chocolate chips.

Bowl # 4

2. The BEST overnight oats! 1/2 cup oats mixed with almond milk, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla and left in the fridge overnight. In the morning, I mixed in 1/2 cup greek yogurt and topped with all kinds of local fruit (peach, berries) and walnuts. Delish!

Bowl # 5
 Emily- Today I Love My Life

Bowl #1
A delightful mix of Greek yogurt, Crofter's Asian Superfruit spread, berries, Naturally More peanut butter and 1/2 c. barley, plus cinnamon, of course!

Bowl #6 

Bowl #2
SMOATS (Spinach smoothie overnight oats)!! It may look disgusting as my husband so kindly pointed out, but it tastes delicious! 

I simply blended together my favorite green goodness ingredients, in this case: blueberry pom yogurt, Greek yogurt, fresh blueberries, 3 handfuls of spinach and just a few drops of almond milk; making sure to add a little less liquid than normal so the overnight oats wouldn't turn out too sloppy. Then I dumped my extra thick smoothie into a bowl and stirred in 1/3 c. oats and cinnamon. In the morning, I added the requisite Fiber One, beautiful banana slices and a big fat blob of sunbutter. Magnifique! 

Bowl # 7
Alaina- The Jogging Concierge

Ingredients: 1/2 cup oats, honey, almonds, Best Damn Granola, raisins, spoonful of pumpkin.

Bowl # 8

* oats, cinnamon, honey, almond butter and milk mixed in 

topped with:

* banana, whole raw almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, raisins and another sprinkle of cinnamon!

Simple, but tasty!
