Buckwheat Health Bowl

After a few days away celebrating my birthday I am back to the grind. In the past I have had trouble disconnecting while away, I like to be engaged with my readers, but this trip I decided to take a less is more approach and stuck to a few photos on Instagram - you can follow me @laurencunger - and kept the writing and recipe testing to a minimum.

Well, I have to say, I am fortunate to love my job. It felt amazing to get back into the kitchen this morning. With a bunch of emails to get through and a fall detox to finish writing, I decided to dive into a hearty protein and fiber filled breakfast to get me going.

This breakfast is great as you can change out many components to make it different every time. Milk can be substituted with water, protein powders can be interchanged, spices can be switched seasonally for digestion, and fruits can easily be swapped to your liking.

Take a peek at this easy to follow recipe:

Buckwheat Health Bowl


  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1/2 cup buckwheat

  • 2 tbsp protein powder of choice (I like to use Aloha Vanilla)

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • Dash of sea salt

  • 1 cup cherries


In a small saucepan, bring milk to a boil and cook buckwheat according to package directions. Remove from heat and stir in the protein powder, chia seeds, cinnamon and sea salt. Top with cherries and serve immediately.

This breakfast is great to enjoy all year round!!!
