Like the warmth of a breakfast oatmeal bowl but wish it was a little less….mushy? Move over oatmeal. The Morning Power Bulgur Breakfast Bowl is here. It’s sweet, nutritious, easy to make, and has a great, chewy texture. Try it. You’re going to love it!
In addition to tasting great, bulgur weighs in at 8 grams of dietary fiber in one cup. And speaking of weight, it’s high fiber content will digest slowly, making you feel faster, longer. It contains what is known as resistant starch. This fat-burning powerhouse can’t be digested or absorbed, so it never enters your bloodstream. That means that you won’t be storing those carbs as body fat! So eat up!
And remember, buy organic ingredients to make this – and every – dish even tastier and better for you!
½ cup coarse bulgur
1 cup coconut or almond milk
¼ tsp Ceylon cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cardamom
¼ tsp ground ginger
1 honey crisp apple

¼ cup no-added sugar dried cranberries (optional)
