Even if you’re not a breakfast person, you’re going to want to start your day with something. All meals are important but, it can be argued that breakfast is  the most important meal as it lays the foundation for the rest of the day.  Cereal is usually a combo of refined carbohydrates loaded with added sugars and often other unhealthy ingredients and  may only make you hungry soon after versus providing long lasting energy and a feeling of satiety. Instead of that same ole cereal you’ve been eating since college, give a filling and delicious bowl of this better-than-cereal bowl a try.

Why We Love It

This is an easy recipe that you can make-ahead. Bulgur contains many vitamins and minerals, as well as belly-filling fiber. Plus, cherries are sweet, tart, and full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.
