The Good Bowl.

Thanks to an early wakeup call during the work week, it's super important for me to start my day off right. This usually means giving myself extra time to get ready, check blogs and make a breakfast that not only satisfies me but also makes me really freaking happy. Oh, and I can't forget my daily cup of French press coffee. So perfect.

I am currently obsessed with the following concoction.

The Good Bowl

This isn't so much of a recipe as it is a loose guideline. Interpret it however you please.

1-2 cups greens (I usually use spinach or kale)
1/2 frozen banana
1/2-1 tbsp nut butter
1/2 - 1 cup almond milk
1/2 tbsp maca powder
1 tbsp flax meal
1 tbsp macro greens (this stuff is magic)
1 scoop protein powder of choice
ice cubes


toasted coconut
hemp seeds
dried fruit
more nut butter
and on and on and on....

It's an extremely simple recipe. If you know how to make a smoothie, you're all set. I like to make this extra thick by cutting the milk in half and adding more banana or ice cubes so that it feels extra decadent. I love that it's chock full of good ingredients but really does remind me of dessert at the same time. With this on the menu, 4:30am doesn't feel so bad.


  1. I LOVE breakfasts like this. This looks so tasty, healthy and has name all over it. Can't wait to give it a try! And your morning routine sounds the same as mine!! xoxo
