Alkaline Recipe #184: Super-Nutrient Breakfast Bowl
Here’s a brand new one for you, and it’s one I’ve learned to love over the past few months. I’ve been fine-tuning it to get the ‘time-to-plate’ down as low as possible, because I know as much as anyone how busy it can get in the morning (Joe’s new kindy doesn’t provide food, so that extra step each day has squeezed my busy morning even more! Plus side is I’m now in total control of his food intake 🙂
As you probably know, having a healthy, alkaline breakfast is probably the biggest influence on whether you have a good, healthy, nutritious day.
Get brekkie right and you’re WAY more likely to continue that trend throughout your day. It’s like it gives your willpower muscle an extra boost.
Start the day wrong and it’s SO much easier to be tempted at morning tea, or when someone offers you a cookie at work, or when you get a snack attack…
This breakfast bowl is a brilliant way to start the day right.
It’s quick, filling, nutritious, and very, very alkalizing 🙂
Alkaline Recipe #184: Super-Nutrient Breakfast Bowl
1 large sweet potato
2 tablespoon of coconut oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
8 florets of broccoli
2 large handfuls of beet greens or kale
4 large handfuls of baby spinach
1 large avocado, roughly chopped
Salt and cracked pepper to taste
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
Dressing: Lemon & Tahini Alkaline Dressing
4 tbsp tahini (bought or homemade)
4 tbsp water
2 tbsp flax or olive oil
180ml lemon juice
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
Himalayan (healthy) salt and cracked black pepper to taste
1) Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit/ 200 Celcius to get those sweet potato chips going, as these take the longest…
2) While the oven is heating, wash the sweet pots and slice them really quite thinly – so they’re a thick potato chip rather than a chunky wedge – this will help with speed. Once ready, season and coat with half of the coconut oil. Get them into the oven, even if it’s not quite up to heat yet 🙂
3) While these are cooking (takes about 15-20 minutes – but all ovens differ so keep an eye on them, as they’re thin they’ll go from *perfect* to burned pretty quick) you should get the dressing ready – this is simple, just get all of those ingredients into a blender or food processor and whizz until smooth!
4) Once the potatoes look like they’ve got about 6-8 minutes left, it’s time to prepare the veggies, so heat the remaining coconut oil gently in a large pan and then add the garlic for a minute, then the spinach and beet greens (or kale) and broccoli – warm through for 4-5 minutes until the greens are looking good, the spinach has shrunken and the broccoli is al dente.
Note: if you prefer your broccoli less crunchy, I recommend steaming it at this stage rather than adding it to the pan
5) Now its time to bring it all together! Remove the potato chips from the oven and pat down with some paper kitchen towel and line the bowls with these, then add the veggies, sprinkle with the seeds, and dress with the dressing!
And it’s done! Delicious, filling, alkaline, nutrient-dense, and an awesome start to the day!
Enjoy and let me know how you go!
Are beyond burgers healthy and are they alkaline?
No, and no.
INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! I was not an avocado lover at all before doing the Alkaline Reset Cleanse..now i can’t get enough variations in my diet…even have my children eating this breakfast bowl!!!!
My QUESTION is… do you have nutritional breakdowns for these great recipes… i would certainly find that very helpful seeing myself hitting all the requirements above an beyond , knowing how i’m loving my body and healthy lifestyle!!!
I’m converting all of my recipes over to have this info asap :). Watch this space!
Totally excited on this journey with a healthy, grateful attitude and lifestyle! Thank you!
Ross I am going to give your Alkaline Diet a try
My question is I am a Diabetic I Have a issue with a Diabetic ulcer on my foot since August 4 operations later and having a hard time healing ulcer. Would going alkaline help with healng my ulcer
I know it is a tough Question but I need any help I can get. I have my Blood sugars in check bu still need help Thanks James
I don’t know about anyone else but this amount of lemon juice in the dressing is too much. Other than that the recipe makes a delicious meal!
Certainly feel free to lower the lemon.
Hi Ross – I watched your wonderful webinar yest. 4/28. Site would not let me ask questions or sign up for bootcamp. My question is, How much of the 3L water per day should be actual “alkaline” water? (I have acid reflux although I feel I may no longer have a problem since starting your hydration & alkaline eating advice.) Looking forward to getting the workbook. Thanks, Sharon USA
Hi I suffer with bloated stomach always full of wind I would love to start an Alkiline diet for healthy reasons but not sure we’re to start,can you suggest anything please.Thank you.Carol.

Great recipe Ross! My husband and I had this for breakfast this morning and loved it! Love that there is plenty of dressing left over for many more servings. I cut up and washed a couple of crowns of broccoli to speed up the prep time for the rest of the mornings.
One change I might make tomorrow is to turn up the heat to 450 to cut down on the baking time. My sweet potatoes took about 25 minutes to cook to my preferred texture even though they were pretty thin.
Ross – is there any diminished health benefit of the coconut oil if I cook at a higher temperature?
These look great!
Have you tried making the potato chips in advance/ have any tips?
Looking forward to trying it 🙂
I have eaten left over roasted sweet potatoes before so I would think making the chips in advance would be fine if you didn’t mind them a little softer/soggier and if you ate them in 2 or 3 days.
Hey Ross, I love everything about you – your personality, your presentations and diet philosophy, your integrity and especially your super alkaline recipes!!
I have a suggestion. I took your Alkaline Diet Recipe Books (Vol. 1 & 2) to an Office Supply Store (or Kinkos) to have them spiral bound so they lay flat. My suggestion is this: The next time you do another book printing, have your printer move everything to the right just a fraction. That way when I add a spiral binding, nothing will get cut off! Blessings and many thanks for all you do!
Very grateful for this recipe
