Fiber (32% DV) from the avocado and bulgur along with protein (22% DV) from the egg ensure this hearty breakfast bowl will keep you fueled throughout the day. Bulgur is a quick-cooking whole grain that you can batch cook ahead of time by boiling for 12-15 minutes and then draining off the excess liquid. Scramble, hard-boil, poach or fry the egg depending on your preference and serve with sriracha or hot sauce to spice things up.
