Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, start it off the right way with a Southwestern Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl!
As we bid farewell to a leisurely summer full of sunshine and long days spent pool side, a new school year awaits us. Toodie’s first day of fourth grade was just last month and this mom is officially a grad student! You can imagine how much our routine has changed in such a short amount of time. Between homework and every day responsibilities, there isn’t always an abundance of time to spend on meal planning during our busy weeks. However, I’m a firm believer in the importance of eating together. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner – meal time provides an opportunity to share the highlights of the day and strengthen the bond between you and your family.
This September, in honor of National Family Meals Month™, Eggland’s Best and the American Heart Association are teaming up to help educate families on the importance of spending time together while eating healthy and nutritious meals. Their Healthy For Good™ movement calls on families to take the Family Meals Pledge and commit to spending an additional “dozen” minutes together around the table. This delicious Southwestern Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl is one sure way to do so!
Quinoa has quickly become a favorite of mine because it’s healthy and packed with super grains. It’s easy to doctor up and even tastier when you toss in some fresh corn, chopped tomatoes, creamy avocado chunks, and green onions. Don’t forget a generous drizzle of hot sauce to give it that extra kick. Topped with an over easy egg, this breakfast bowl can be made within minutes and is guaranteed to fill you up until lunch time arrives. Getting Toodie to eat before school has never been so easy! She inhaled this bad boy.
