Nicola Halloran aka The Wonky Spatula gives us her take on this healthy breakfast - for more recipes, tips and tricks follow #GiveInToLiving

It can often be hard to get enough veggies in in the mornings – breakfast bowls are the easiest and more delicious way to do this. 100% my favourite thing to eat in the mornings - and bonus points for being paleo-friendly!

What you'll need:

  • Large handful of red cabbage
  • 1 Small sweet potato, peeled and chopped into cubes
  • 6-8 Brussels sprouts
  • 2 pieces of bacon
  • 1 egg
  • Coconut oil


  1. In a large pan add 1 tsp of coconut oil, sauté the cabbage for 2-3 minutes on a high heat before adding a splash of water and reducing the temperature and placing a lid over the pan. Steam for 5 minutes or until tender.
  2. Steam or power boil the sprouts for roughly 2 minutes and set aside to cool.
  3. In another pan heat another tsp of coconut oil and fry off the sweet potato until golden and crispy.
  4. Add the bacon to the pan, once the bacon is fully cooked and nice and crispy remove from the pan and cut into small strips.
  5. Halve the sprouts and add the pan with the sweet potato to crisp up, along with the bacon and mix.
  6. Place the cabbage, sweet potato, bacon and sprouts in a large bowl.
  7. Heat the pan again with some more coconut oil and fry the egg to your liking, place on top and enjoy!

Takeaway tip: To save time in the mornings have all of your bacon and all of your vegetables cooked in advance, add to a hot pan to reheat while you cook your egg!
