Savory Breakfast Bowl (Gluten Free and Vegan)

Savory Breakfast Bowl

It’s 2016 and sort of hard to believe that another year has passed by. Can you? Maybe you’re just as shocked as I am. Maybe not? I always find the holidays and year end to be a time of reflection filled with notaslgia but I am at a turning point in my life. 2015 will be remembered as the year I distingushed what I am committed to going forward as I continue to shed the skin of my former self. I am becoming a grown lady. It will be the year that I realized “someday” does not exists and I only have right now to chase my dreams. There were many accomplishments and triumphs but the biggest one was finally quitting my corporate job to take a leap of faith into entrepreneurship. I am opening up a cafe and I am scared as hell but nothing great comes from comfort zones and lets just shout from the roof tops because I officially stepped outside of mine! The future is uncertain but it is exciting and I can not wait to see what 2016 has in store.

Although I have changed a lot over the last year a couple things have stayed the same: Upon waking up in the morning I immediately think of two things, coffee and breakfast. That might not surprise any of you because you might think of those things, too? I know I’ve said this before on the blog and I’ll say it again, I love eating meals out of bowls. There is something very comforting about it and this savory breakfast bowl is on high rotation. Its filled with nutritious ingredients, seasoned with curry and topped with my favorites: avocado and micro greens. What’s not to love? (rhetorical question).
