POP Nutrition | Fit Breakfast Bowl

Hi guys,

We are in our first week of the Free2BFit 90 Day Pilo-Yoga Challenge and of course just like fueling the car we need to get the best fuel for the bodies so we can stay lean, healthy, and happy. I personally cannot skip breakfast, I get so hungry If I do not eat after a workout I feel nauseous. However, I do tend to get stuck in what I eat and that gets boring. I was looking though cookbooks and came across Bibimbap – widely enjoyed and very much loved korean dish and traditionally served over bed of rice. So here is a Fit Breakfast Bowl – Free2BFit take on the korean inspiration (serves 4):

  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese of your choice
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. Free2BFit basic spice blend (equal parts or vary ingredients amount to taste: paprika, onion granules, garlic granules, black pepper, mustard seeds, celery seed, lemon peel granules, marjoram, coriander, oregano, basil flakes, cilantro flakes)

  6. When the water starts to bubble add asparagus and carrots. Bring to boil then drain immediately or asparagus will get mushy.drain carrots and asparagus

  8. To cook the egg. Heat up a heavy bottom skillet, spray a bit of oil, and cook them sunny side up.
  9. To make the Free2BFit Breakfast Bowl: layer quinoa, vegetable and top with egg. When you break the yolk it will run all over the vegetable, the smoked paprika give it a nice kick and then will come the cheesy quinoa. Delicious and so satisfying.Fit Breakfast bowl 1
