Breakfast Energy Bowl

Apr 16, 2021
This breakfast bowl is packed with protein and other nutrients that make it the perfect post-workout meal. It also makes for a great weekend brunch. Everyone can get creative and make their own versions!

We love this bowl because it has a ton of veggies, which can be tricky to get in, especially at breakfast! Did you know that different coloured vegetables offer different micronutrients and antioxidants? The more colourful your bowl, the better!

Our version uses turkey sausage as the main protein source and potatoes for our carb. But the sky's the limit when it comes to variations you can make. Try using sweet potato and black beans for a Mexi style or skip the potatoes all together for a lower carb option.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil 
  • 1 medium potato or 8 little potatoes (150g), diced 
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  • Chicken or Turkey Sauage*
  • ½ bell pepper, diced
  • ¼ medium onion, diced 
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 3 mushrooms, diced 
  • 1 egg**
  • 1 cup arugula or spinach 
  • Optional: garlic powder, Mrs. Dash, or any of your favourite herbs and spices!
* We used PC Turkey smoked sausage but any chicken or turkey sausage works. We also love Connie's Kitchen Feta and Spinach Chicken Sausages you can find at Costco!
** Add an extra egg or some egg whites if you're hungry

DIRECTIONS 

  1. In a large bowl, mix potatoes, 1/2 tsp olive oil, garlic powder (optional) salt & pepper, and cook in an air fryer or roast in the oven until tender
  2. Cut sausage into rounds and cook sausage following package instructions 
  3. Heat 1/2 tsp of olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat
  4. Add chopped veggies to the pan
  5. Once the sausage is cooked, remove and set aside. In the same pan, cook 1 egg to your preference (we suggest over easy-medium so the yolk runs a bit!). 
  6. To assemble your bowl, add arugula or spinach (or both!) as the base followed by potatoes, sausage, veggies, and top with eggs! 
  7. Mix everything together for a yummy explosion of flavours! 

Optional - add 1 tbsp of ketchup or mayo (or both!) for extra flavour.
