Warm Breakfast Bowl with Mixed Berry Reduction
A hearty helping of berries is a bright and flavorful way to start your day with fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. We love pairing this berry reduction with bulgur, a whole grain that is high in fiber and antioxidants. Bulgur is a nice alternative to oatmeal on days when you feel like mixing it up!
