Wellness Wednesday || A Delicious Breakfast Bowl + Slow Weekends

The word slow really isn’t in my vocabulary. I’ve always been a fast mover… a doer…. a “let’s get going” type of girl (and I wonder where Harper gets it from)…. and it’s always applied to the weekends as well. Yet, TJ on the other hand loves to move slowly. It was one of those “issues” we had to work through when we first got married… how to meet in the middle when one person wakes up ready to tackle the day, and the other wakes up ready to do a little more lounging around. And while we haven’t reached a definitive solution to that issue, we do agree on how we spend our weekends 95% of the time…. whether it’s getting up and going, or laying around just a little bit longer.

One of the ways that I’ve come to accept the “slow” morning concept is by making a delicious breakfast we wouldn’t ordinarily make. While this dish typically isn’t too elaborate, it’s often a small variation of our weekday morning meals, adding a twist here and there makes it feel a little more special. We add sweet potatoes to a breakfast scramble, maybe a fancier avocado toast, and more recently, these delicious breakfast bowls. We had a similar bowl at one of our favorite breakfast spots, Haute Cakes, when they had it as a special…. we both ordered it and loved it so much we decided to try and replicate it this past weekend in Palm Springs. They’re super simple to make, and even better to eat when you’re lounging around in your favorite comfies, with nothing on the agenda for the rest of the day (ok, that’s TJ’s world… mine is until 11am tops….).

Breakfast Bowls:

2 Eggs (we did a poached variation, but they’re best with some sort of runny egg)
1 cup of shaved brussels sprouts (you can buy them this way at Trader Joe’s or shave them in a food processor)
Handful of Arugula
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
Sliced cherry tomatoes
2 Slices of crumbled bacon (optional)
Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Spay
Lemon Juice
Sea Salt

To Assemble: Toss the greens in a bowl, and then top with the quinoa, brussels sprouts, tomatoes, + bacon. Then spray everything several times with the avocado oil, use as much lemon juice as you’d like (we probably started with 1/2 tsp and increased from there to get just the right amount of tanginess), and sprinkle with a dash of sea salt. Mix everything together. Top with the eggs.

And in case you’re looking for some cozy loungewear to convince you to move a little slower in the mornings my favorites include these joggers, rose colored sweatshirt + jogger duo, rose colored long sleeve + cozy short set, and this adorable heart set. Now, is it the weekend yet??
