Breakfast Chocolate Semolina Bowl (Oatmeal bowl alternative)

There are so many different breakfast bowl options - oatmeal bowl, smoothie bowls, granola bowl, and tons of different varieties, and we love them! And today I decided to share with you one of my childhood favorite foods which are recreated to a popular bowl.

It is just one more option for an easy delicious breakfast :)

And here is a little bit of information about semolina.

  • Fiber: 7% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI)

  • Thiamine: 41% of the RDI

  • Folate: 36% of the RDI

  • Riboflavin: 29% of the RDI

  • Iron: 13% of the RDI

  • Magnesium: 8% of the RDI

Semolina is high in protein and fiber — both of which slow digestion and increase feelings of fullness between meals. It’s also high in B vitamins like thiamine and folate, which have many important roles in your body, including helping convert food into energy. Additionally, semolina is a good source of iron and magnesium. These minerals support red blood cell production, heart health, and blood sugar control. Enriched semolina flour is nutritious and provides high levels of various B vitamins, iron, protein, and fiber.

May promote weight loss Semolina is high in several nutrients that may support weight loss. For starters, a 1/3 cup (56 grams) of uncooked, enriched semolina provides 7% of the RDI for fiber — a nutrient that many diets lack. Studies associate a fiber-rich diet with weight loss and lower body weight. It can reduce feelings of hunger and prevent future weight gain. For example, a study in 252 women found that every 1-gram increase in dietary fiber per day resulted in a weight loss of 0.5 pounds (0.25 kg) over 20 months. Semolina is also rich in protein, with 1/3 cup (56 grams) of uncooked semolina providing over 7 grams. Increasing protein in your diet has been shown to promote weight loss. For example, a review of 24 studies noted that a high-protein diet — compared to a standard-protein diet — resulted in 1.7 pounds (0.79 kg) greater weight loss. Increasing protein in your diet may also help reduce hunger, preserve muscle mass during weight loss, increase fat loss, and improve body composition. Foods rich in protein and fiber — like semolina — can increase feelings of fullness and reduce hunger. In turn, this may promote weight loss. *source Find the recipe below!
