Bulletproof Breakfast: Buddha Bowl

The food choices you make in the morning affect the way you feel all day. Whether you skip breakfast and fast until lunch or eat first thing in the morning, avoiding sugar and carbs is your key to steady energy all day.

So what can you have for breakfast?

Bulletproof Coffee is packed with healthy fats that will keep you going well past lunch, but every now and again you might want something to eat in the morning. In these cases, it’s best to stick to protein, low-starch veggies, and ample fat.

Protein, veg, and fat for steady energy and a happy gut

Protein gives you steady energy and brainpower while keeping you full for hours. Low starch veggies like greens, cucumber, and cauliflower offer fiber and micronutrients like magnesium, iron, and folate. And don’t skimp on the fat! Fat from grass-fed ghee will help your body absorb critical micronutrients from your food.

Bulletproof Coffee is an amazing answer to breakfast, but for the days you feel like eating breakfast, or when you want to mix up your Bulletproof Intermittent fasting regimen, this nourishing Bulletproof Buddha Bowl from our friend Jordan Pie is the answer.
