When you run a healthy food blog, you see the newest health trends before they really take off. I've been seeing things like adding collagen peptides to coffee, drinking bone broth, and putting turmeric on everything for months now. One thing that really caught my eye is the newest healthy breakfast trend on the scene — sweet potato bowls.These bowls are basically made of a baked sweet potato cut open with toppings added. I've seen everything from Greek yogurt, nut butters, granola, fruits, chia pudding, cacao nibs, nuts, and more added to these creations. I love sweet potatoes and eat (at least) one a day, but I was still caught off guard the first few times I saw sweet potato bowls as a breakfast meal on Instagram. It had never occurred to me that this tater could be a breakfast food. After seeing the bowls more and more though, I decided it was time to give it a try.
I made my first sweet potato bowl with coconut-flavored Greek yogurt, Purely Elizabeth maple walnut probiotic granola, and almond butter. From the first bite, I understood the hype. Breakfast sweet potato bowls are all they are built up to be. Here's how I made mine

Next time you're stuck on what to make for breakfast, or are sick of your daily oatmeal or smoothies, try a sweet potato bowl to switch it up. You may be potatolly surprised (sorry).
