What is a Power Bowl?

A Power Bowl is simply a meal or bowl packed with nutritious ingredients, aka “power foods”.

It typically consists of 4 things:


Vegetables or Fruit



Crunchy Toppings

Why Is This Breakfast Bowl Good for You?

It’s high in protein. In fact, one serving provides a whopping 34 grams of protein.

It’s also high in healthy carbs like fiber. A serving provides almost 70% of your daily fiber needs- that’s a whole lotta fiber!

It is also naturally gluten-free. Thus, it makes for a filling, nutritious, macro-rich breakfast!

Step 1. Heat up the saucepan to medium-high heat. Then, add in unsweetened almond milk, rolled oats, protein powder, chia seeds, and water.

Step 2. Give it a mix, bring it to boil, and then lower the heat. Let the porridge simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Step 3. Transfer the porridge to a bowl.

Step 4. Top it all up with Greek yogurt, blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, walnuts, and sunflowers. To finish up, I’m going to drizzle a little bit of maple syrup over it.

Just replace the Greek yogurt with your favorite non-dairy yogurt. Some good options would be soy milk yogurt, almond milk yogurt, or coconut milk yogurt.
