Fall Breakfast Bowls are a healthy, filling and warming treat as the cooler air moves in and we crave warming foods.
The fall season is in full swing and we’ve been feeling the seasonal shift. This time of the year, many experience a lower immune system, stress, less sleep (especially during the holiday season)and may feel ‘blah.’ We start to crave heavier, comfort foods.
To help support the body through this seasonal change and beyond, adding in superfoods is a great way to support and nourish the body.
If you are interested in using more superfoods this fall, a great option for you is to make breakfast bowls. You might have heard of smoothie bowls, but that is definitely not the only fun bowl idea for breakfast that doesn’t include cereal. Take a look at these healthy options for your next superfood breakfast.
smoothy pumpkin breakfast bowl
Smoothie bowls are popular year-round, as a way to add more superfoods into your nutrition and have a healthy, yummy breakfast. It may seem weird having a smoothie with pumpkin, but it actually contains the perfect texture and just enough sweetness to make this a filling and healthy breakfast bowl. The trick here is to add banana to the smoothie bowl along with your pumpkin puree, since it is going to sweeten it up. You can then use some almond milk or other milk (such as cashew or coconut), along with your choice of fall spices. Just a little allspice will also work since it combines different flavors in one. For toppings, try chia seeds, ground cinnamon, and walnuts. Toasted walnuts are delish too!
apple Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
Here is another tasty breakfast bowl that is going to use those wonderful superfoods. Between the farmers markets and apple festivals, it’s not hard to find delicious apples this time of the year. Quinoa is added in to give you a healthy grain that is filling and contains plenty of fiber. This quinoa bowl is on the sweeter side, using sliced apples, apple pie spice, applesauce, and some almond milk or soy milk. You can also make it even sweeter with some pure maple syrup drizzled or local raw honey on top.
Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl
This may not sound appetizing right away, but give it a chance! You aren’t just eating a bowl of sweet potatoes; you are combining them with some of the classic fall flavors for a healthy and nutrient-rich breakfast bowl that is easy to put together. In addition to the sweet potatoes, which should be mashed after cooking them, add in a mashed banana and mix it together. You can then add in your spices, whether you add them individually, or go with allspice or a simple pumpkin pie spice. Other ingredients are up to you, though chia seeds, flax seeds and almond milk go really good with this type of breakfast bowl.

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal breakfast bowl
Pumpkin spice is a popular flavor during fall. Often a fan favorite, this one you should definitely try. You can transform your morning oatmeal into a fall spiced delight and make it taste just like pumpkin pie. Some ingredients to use include rolled oats, water, nut milk, banana, pumpkin pie spice, and your choice of natural sweetener. You can go with local raw honey, agave syrup or a pure maple syrup. Pumpkin puree is of course also added in the oatmeal.
When it comes to breakfast bowls, spice it up, have some fun and dig into your creative side. Discover what tastes and flavors you enjoy!
