There's a new trend popping up all over Instagram and food blogs as of late that we've just been dying to try: Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls. What better way to test out this strange yet delicious-sounding fad than using the ingredients of our September bar of the month, Cherry + Walnut + Cinnamon?
This bar is locked and loaded with anti-inflammatory nutrients to keep you healthy and fueled all through flu season. Sweet potatoes are a powerhouse of nutrients, from Vitamin A (beta-carotene), B-vitamins, and potassium among many more, as well as being a slow-digesting carbohydrate perfect for fueling up before or after a workout. Cinnamon and turmeric are often touted as two of the most beneficial spices for health. Cinnamon is known to maintain blood sugar levels, spike your metabolism, and reduce risk of heart disease, while turmeric is a very powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Buckwheat Groats are actually not a grain (they're a seed!) and provide a good source of protein and fiber in place of grains such as oats.
We combined all of these ingredients into a bowl, along with a little yogurt and a drizzle of honey, and while we were skeptical at first, we must say...it was absolutely delicious! Try it for yourself using the recipe below!
