Table of contents
Ingredients in this bowl:
See the recipe card below for exact measurements, but here are the things you'll need:
• Mushrooms – considered to be a gut superfood by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, mushrooms are a great breakfast food and are easy to cook
• ground Chicken – you can also use ground pork or turkey if you'd rather, but chicken is a great option that accepts the flavors well to make a quick breakfast sausage
• Primal Palate Breakfast Blend – this is an AIP-friendly herb mix that makes really quick work of making a delicious breakfast sausage. If you don't have this though you can use a mixture of a pinch each of: Sea Salt, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, dried Oregano, Cinnamon, Turmeric, and Sage
• Kale – a perfect green to complete this bowl, but of course you can use any green you'd like
• Avocado – a few slices of avocado help make this bowl keep you full until lunch and give you wonderful, nourishing fats
• Radishes -their slight spiciness adds a great element of flavor to this bowl
• Thyme and Garlic – these are used to flavor the mushrooms
How to make this bowl:
This is quite a simple recipe and something that can be whipped up quickly in the morning.
I recommend using 2 pans to make it go quicker, but if you don't have that ability, just use one instead.
• Cook the mushrooms in one pan
• At the same time, cook the ground chicken sausage in another
• Slice the avocado, kale, and radishes while these are cooking
• Remove the mushrooms from the pan, add the kale and cook until wilted
• Assemble the bowls
That's it! See the recipe card below for exact instructions though.
Make this bowl ahead of time:
You can make the sausage and slice the radishes, mushrooms, and kale during a meal prep session and keep in the fridge up for up to 5 days.
However, I'd cook the mushrooms and kale to order as the mushrooms get a bit slimy when stored in the fridge and the kale in this dish is meant to be freshly wilted. My advice if you pre-cook the sausage ahead of time would be to cook the mushrooms, and then add the kale and pre-cooked sausage at the same time to wilt the kale and warm the sausage back up.
Also, slice the avocado just before serving as well to avoid browning.

This is so delicious! I have never been a breakfast person and have food sensitivities to gluten and eggs. I have made this every morning and it is so good! I am a breakfast person now if this is for breakfast. It is really quick easy to make in the morning if you prep the meat beforehand.
I’m eating this right now, and it is delicious! I was prepared to not like Kale, this is my first time trying it (at 48 y/o lol). It’s not bad…question…this is for TWO servings?? So each person would have 1/2 pound of meat?? This is a LOT of food 🙂
You’re right – I think at some point in time I meant to put in a note about that since most people can only find ground meat in 1 lb packages, plus I did a survey a few years ago and everyone said 2 lb of meat is their preferred 4-person serving size (but that was for dinners where people like to have some leftovers), so I had just extrapolated that to this. But it is a lot for a breakfast. I just changed it to say 1/2 lb instead for 2 people.
This was so delicious! I’d been stuck in the turkey, sweet potato, apple and kale rut and this was a much needed variation! I ended up using some leftover Brussels sprouts and parsnip instead of kale and it was perfect! I shared this recipe in my meal plan for last week http://studyinfitness.com/july-week-2-meal-plan/ Thank you so much!
Oh yum! That sounds like a great combo. Thanks so much for sharing!
