The breakfast bowl is by far one of my favorite meals to start the day with. It provides your body with complex carbohydrates, healthy fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals to improve your overall well-being. I usually exercise in the morning so I will prepare this as soon as I get home to refuel my body.
