Mexican Breakfast Bowl

This quick, throw-together Mexican Breakfast Bowl makes for a lovely, well-balanced start to the day. Soft-boiled eggs atop a bed of smokey black beans and corn, fresh cherry tomatoes and creamy diced avocado. I’ve added shredded kale and cauliflower rice for a major nutrient boost, although you can add some brown rice for something a little more substantial. This all comes together to make a big, bountiful bowl that’ll keep you satiated through your morning.
