This dish makes for any easy breakfast packed with superfoods that will be sure to satisfy your taste buds and keep you satisfied. Bulgur, a wholesome whole grain, is known as a quick cooking grain with mild flavor and is extremely versatile. One cup has more fiber than quinoa, oats, and buckwheat and is packed with more than 10% of your daily needs for protein, phosphorus, and magnesium, and niacin.
Blueberries and almonds add additional fiber and antioxidants to this dish making it even healthier and extra delicious, while the yogurt and cheese make this dish a great source of calcium (>400 mg). Loaded with fiber, protein, and healthy fats and low in added sugars, this breakfast is sure to start your day off right!
