Fresh Cherry Fig Power Bowl

Posted by Bikini Owner

I happen to be a smoothie-for-breakfast kind of gal, but for the mornings when I'm looking for a little more than a slurp, I go for a Power Bowl.

What does a "Power Bowl" entail exactly, you may be wondering? In Bubble World, it's a bowl full of gluten free, allergy friendly, vegan wholesome fabulousness, i.e. a harmonious blend of nutrition that packs a hearty punch.

The key to a powerful Power Bowl include the following rockstar ingredients:

  • Protein  use your favorite allergy friendly protein powder to start your day on the right foot. I happen to love GROWING NATURALS VANILLA BLAST PROTEIN POWDER.
  • Carbohydrate  the options are endless for this key component of your Power Bowl! From oatmeal to quinoa flakes and hot rice cereal to any ancient grain, the possibilities go on. I'm a big fan of ECO PLANET GLUTEN FREE INSTANT OATMEAL.
  • Fat  contrary to popular belief, fat is an essential part of our diet...good fat, that is! Add a spoonful of your favorite seed or nut butter [allergy friendly, of course!] or a drizzle of chia seed or flax oil, which will help you stay full longer, and just as importatntly, fuel your brain all morning long.
  • Fiber  my favorite fibers also add great fat, protein, and flavor. No Bubble Girl Power Bowl is complete without at least a spoonful of ground flaxseed or chia seed!
  • Fruit  this element of your Power Bowl has the freedom to vary each and every day, dependent on your mood and which fruits are in season. I, myself, fancy berry-based Power Bowls and also love a good bowlful of dried fruit. Then, of course, there are the fabulous, vitamin packed fruits like bananas, mangos, peaches, pears...the list goes on!
  • Flavor Boost  add a touch of cinnamon, a pinch a cardamom, or a teaspoon of Maca powder for an extra boost of flavor. Play with these flavors based on the fruits in your bowl! A dash of nutmeg does wonders when using pumpkin or dates; ginger adds a great kick with fresh apples.

Get creative with your Power Bowl! They're easily customizable based on your dietary needs, flavor preferences, and season. Here's a few of my favorite Power Bowl recipes from posts past:
