Kimchi Wild Rice Breakfast Bowl

4 servings Prep time: 15 min Cook time: 15 min

I love making a savory breakfast and this one comes with extra gut support thanks to spicy kimchi. As a fermented food, kimchi has so much to offer our health. Chronic stress and poor diet deplete the precious good bacteria in our gut which negatively affects our immune system, mood, weight, and much more. Kimchi supports the growth of good gut bacteria and is also rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, minerals, and prebiotics.

This breakfast also packs in detoxifying and fiber-rich broccoli as well as protein-rich turkey bacon and eggs. It’s overflowing with flavor and it’s a great way to reframe what breakfast can be. 

Wishing you health and happiness,
