Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and fueling your body up with nutritious fruits and whole grains is going to make you want to tackle the morning! This is why we love our Peanut Butter Banana Bulgur Bowl—it’s full of enough fiber and protein to keep you satisfied until lunch. It’s also super portable; you can put it into a container, place in your lunch bag, and eat it at your desk at work, or you can have a leisurely morning at home enjoying this nutritious meal. If you are looking for a good bulgur to use, we highly recommend using Sunnyland Mills bulgar—it’s all natural, absorbs water at a consistent rate, and it’s made from white wheat (which has no tannic acid that is found in traditional bulgur products, leaving a sweeter taste as a result) instead of red wheat. Sunnyland Mills is also the oldest producer of bulgur wheat in the Western Hemisphere, as it was founded in 1935! Bulgur is rich in Manganese, fiber, protein, iron, and low in fat, which makes it an ideal food to incorporate into your daily diet! You can get more information and bulgur recipe inspiration at Sunnyland Mills website, http://sunnylandmills.com/index.shtml. So go ahead and enjoy this amazing breakfast recipe—we can guarantee you will love the easy preparation and big flavors that this provides!
