I cannot stress enough how easy it is to throw a breakfast bowl together.  Once you start getting into the habit of making these regularly you won’t stop because they’re so easy and they always hit the spot.

Today I had to run my daughter to an ortho appointment and was pretty limited on time so my ever trusty bowl was in order.  Now when I say I was limited on time, I mean I had 20 minutes to spare to cook something nourishing and delicious.  If I had 5 minutes, I would’ve thrown some chocolate protein into a shaker, but I really do prefer to eat my meals as opposed to drinking them when I can.

You can watch how I made this bowl step-by-step on Instagram on the Highlight called “Breakfast Bowl” (I’m so creative). 😉

Breakfast Bowl
Recipe by: Alison Howard
Yield: 1 serving


2 slices (sugar-free) bacon, chopped
2 stalks broccolini
1 tsp ghee
1 medium mushroom, sliced
2 Tbsp onion, chopped
1/4 cup zucchini, cut into half moons
1 cup spinach
2-3 eggs (depending on how big they are), beaten
Fresh avocado and tomato (however much you like)
Salt & pepper, to taste


  1. In a skillet, add bacon pieces and let fat render and bacon get crispy over medium-high heat.  Once done, remove bacon to drain on paper towels and pour out some of the fat.
  2. In a separate skillet, add the ghee and allow it to melt over medium heat.  Add the broccolini and season with a little salt and pepper.  Let that cook for about 5 minutes each side or until the buds are crispy.  Once done, turn off skillet and let them hang out there until you’re ready to plate.
  3. Over medium heat add mushrooms to your pan with the bacon drippings.  Once they start to turn color add the zucchini and onions.  Season with a little salt and pepper.  Let them cook until they start to turn golden brown.  Turn heat to low.  Add spinach and once it begin to wilt add the beaten eggs.
  4. Move the eggs around the veggies and allow to cook for a few minutes until they reach the consistency you prefer. Adjust seasonings accordingly.
  5. Plate with the broccoli.  Add the fresh avocado and tomatoes.

Enjoy! xo
