Start the day off on a spicy and savory note with this Mexican egg, avocado, and black bean breakfast bowl recipe. Packed with protein, fiber, healthy fats, and quality carbohydrates, it’s a delicious way to kick-start the day.

The majority of standard American breakfasts foods are sweet (too sweet) and set the day up for a carbohydrate load and sugar crash. Incorporating plenty of quality macronutrients into the first meal of the day not only prevents that crazy blood sugar ride, it also promotes satiety and the ability to make good food choices the remainder of the day.

Mexican Breakfast Bowl Recipe Ingredients

This breakfast bowl recipe is packed with all sorts of spicy and savory elements for serious breakfast goals.

Organic eggs are a delicious source of high-quality protein (roughly 5-7 grams per egg), vitamins, and minerals. These include vitamins A, B5, B12, and B2, folate, phosphorus, and selenium.

Specifically, eggs contain choline, a nutrient crucial for brain and heart health. Choline is especially important during pregnancy, as a deficiency in this vitamin has been linked to neural-tube defects.

Eggs also contain powerful antioxidants, known as lutein and zeaxanthin, associated with eye health. Having an adequate supply of these compounds is associated with a reduced risk of cataracts and macular degeneration, two common eye conditions, according to a 2006 study.

Along with nutrient-filled eggs, this Mexican breakfast bowl packs in plenty of fiber thanks to black beans and spinach. Spinach contains a powerhouse of vital nutrients including iron, vitamin K, and calcium. Just remember to choose organic spinach to avoid a plethora of pesticides.

Other delicious additions to this breakfast bowl are fresh salsa or tomatoes, hot sauce, and avocado. A healthy fat star, avocado is a delicious source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and monounsaturated fat. Feel free to have slices of avocado or go full-on fiesta with a scoop of guacamole.

Eat this Mexican breakfast bowl recipe with corn tortillas to make mini breakfast tacos, if you’re feeling extra spicy. Because, what better way to start the day than with breakfast tacos?
