Who says you can't have something fancy in the morning before work? This recipe is quick (<10 min prep), flavorful and healthy, which is exactly what you need to jumpstart your day. The blueberries provide antioxidants that protect the body from oxidative stress and reduce inflammation. As an added bonus, they also improve memory and motor function, making it the perfect way to wake-up your brain after a goodnights sleep.
People often ask me how to incorporate more vegetables into their day, especially breakfast. This is the other amazing thing about this breakfast, because it does just that. Cucumbers and kohlrabi are bright satiating flavors when combined in the dish; they pair beautifully with the blueberries and cut through the rich omega-3 fat from the silky, luscious avocado. Who wouldn't want this on a hot summer day?
