Brown rice for breakfast?  Yes, please!  I don’t know why I didn’t think of this earlier.  Brown rice is one of my favorite foods, but I typically reserve it for lunch or dinner for no good reason other than habit.  Times are changing, though, and I’m all about starting my day with a good bowl of rice.  For this Cinnamon Swirl Brown Rice Breakfast Bowl, I used a blend of brown, red and black sprouted rice, because the more colorful your rice the more phytonutrient power.  This bowl is rich in fiber, protein and health-promoting phytochemicals.  The flavor is that of a gooey cinnamon roll, but you won’t be filling up on refined sugar, dairy or oil.  Just a simple blend of dates, coconut milk, cinnamon and rice.  The best of both worlds – flavor and health – all thrown into one glorious bowl of goodness.
