Why I Love This Recipe

I took her suggestion about creating a breakfast meal around a bowl of brown rice and came up with the following bowl of deliciousness. Whole grains provide you with lots of fiber for weight management and stable blood sugar. I made a big pot of brown rice last night and will be eating off the leftovers all week long. Try this recipe (or a breakfast bowl of your own creation) and let me know what you think.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 avocado
1 handful fresh arugula
2-3 patties vegan breakfast sausage (such as Gimme Lean)
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. maple syrup
Sprinkle of salt


Form breakfast sausage into patties and cook in a sauté pan with the olive oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes, then flip the patties and cook for 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and drain on a paper towel. Cut sausage patties into bite-sized pieces. Chop up the arugula leaves and toss them in the hot sauté pan for about 30 seconds, just until it begins to wilt. Remove from heat. Dice up the avocado.

Warm up your brown rice and put it in a bowl. Sprinkle on a little salt to season the rice. Add the sausage, arugula, and avocado. Drizzle maple syrup on top and stir everything together. Enjoy!
