Lately I’ve been searching for healthy recipes for breakfast. When I heard about the Family Meals Pledge by Eggland’s Best and the American Heart Association, I knew that I wanted to give one of their recipes a try. This Southwest Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl caught my eye almost immediately. It’s filled with nutrients, quick and easy to make, and so tasty!

Eggland’s Best is the #1 branded egg in the U.S. and is an excellent source of vitamins D, B12, E, B5 and riboflavin. EB eggs have six times more vitamin D, more than double the Omega-3s, 10 times more vitamin E and 25% less saturated fat than ordinary eggs.

    That’s a beautiful breakfast bowl. I adore avocado and eggs as a combination. A little hot sauce on that bowl would make my day!

    This looks good! I’m always on the hunt for new breakfast recipes, I think I’m burnt out from all the daily meals I prepare. With a hot cup of coffee, or tea this looks like it would be very taste…you can add hot sauce too!

    I never thought to combine eggs and quinoa. It looks tasty. I might have to give that a try sometime. I do enjoy having eggs for breakfast.
