Bowl of Goodness

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.










What's your favorite meal in a bowl? I would say cookies, but I guess cookies aren't typically served in a bowl, huh? I guess my favorite is chicken and dumplings. Mmmmm, just looking at that picture makes me want some. I know what's for dinner tomorrow! Especially in the cold winter months, I love chili, chicken soup, beef stew, Italian wedding soup, lentil stew, gumbo, and oatmeal. Anything warm and filling is good on a chilly day. (Although I could easily move to California and eat salads year round. Just sayin'.)

I used to grab a bowl of ice cream a lot of evenings, but a couple years ago, I replaced the ice cream with cereal. It satisfies my craving for something sweet, yet instead of giving me a ton of fat and calories I don't need, it gives me vitamins, minerals and fiber that I do need. And now that I have diverticulosis, I've been pretty diligent about getting at least twenty-five grams of fiber every day.

So, what's your favorite meal in a bowl? Leave me a comment here to be entered into the drawing for $100 Visa gift card from Kellogg's and BlogHer!

Oooh...I love cereal too. Peanut Butter Panda Puffs to be exact and it's fun to say too.

My family goes through a lot of cereal. We have cereal for breakfast, after school snack and sometimes dessert. I would say it is our favorite thing to have in a bowl.

Seriously, my favorite meal in a bowl is cereal! Just last night, after a crazy busy day and a late night at soccer, Doc and I sat down for a bowl of cereal for dinner after we put the kids to bed. YUM!

Greens and Beans - penne pasta with spinach, cannellini beans, garlic, chicken broth and asiago cheese - a nutritious meal in one bowl! 2nd place - chili!

Mayberry Mom said...

Homemade chicken noodle soup! My favorite on a cold, winter day!

Myrnie said...

Favorite meal in a bowl...a huge bowl of rice and beans, with sour cream, cheddar, and fresh onions on top!

Cara! said...

I love a good bowl of soup! or chili!

Tara said...

In the winter the fave is beef stew. In the summer the fave is ice cream.

Jen said...

Favorite food in a bowl...I think I'll say Chili. Or maybe I'm just craving Chili. Or maybe I just feel chilly? Whatever, that's my answer.

Betty N said...

Since I eat cereal every morning, that is my favorite meal to eat in a bowl.

Tammigirl said...

My favorite meal in a bowl changes by the day. I'm a very fickle food-loving creature. Today it would have to be my homemade mac & cheese. I make amazing mac & cheese.

Irishmama said...

My fave meal in a bowl is chili....put some fritos on the bottom, some cheese on the top. The spicier the better. Thanks Dawn, now I want chili.

Ben and Melissa James said...

I like a healthy scramble...eggs, turkey bacon, spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms and whatever other veggies happen to be in the fridge.

I love cereal (although I don't eat it that often) and I love soup. Especially when it's 5 degrees outside and I'm freezing my butt off!

One of mine and the kids favorites!!

Amber Narae said...

Cereal all the way! It's quick, it's easy, and it's nutritious! With 2 tiny kiddos, those are very important attributes =)

Robin said...

I LOVE cereal but my FAVORITE meal in a bowl would be OATMEAL...old fashioned cut (not quick cooking), slightly thick with brown sugar & a splash of milk. Oh YUM! Guess what I'll be having in the very near future? :)

Vicki said...

Hmmmm....it would be a toss-up between Cap'n Crunch and chicken pot pie. Now I'm gonna go eat a bowl of cereal.

Gretchen said...

Cereal for breakfast and white chicken chili for dinner. YUM!

Lisa said...

Chicken and Dumplings made by my Momma. Yummy for my tummy. Just seeing your photo of it, made me want it even more.

Bug said...

My favorite food in a bowl is my grandma's homemade chicken noodle soup.

April M said...

My favorite meal in a bowl would have to be chilli and cornbread. My son's favorite would be cereal, usually 2 or 3 bowls :)

Jen K. said...

I love tortilla soup! Has a little spice and warm on a cold day. Especially for lunch. Keeps me going until dinner time.

Soup! I can eat it all year, even in warm weather.

I love to eat my favorite cajun meal, Sauce Piquante over rice. It's a satisfying tomato-based dish with Stew meat and sausage and green onions, with a little heat thrown in with red pepper flakes. It's great in a bowl with crusty french bread on the side.

CraftyTweetie said...

Mmmmm...it's hard to decide since casseroles are a favorite in our house because they're so easy to make and warm up. I guess one of my all time favorites, though, is Mom's chicken and dumplings. It's soooooooo good, especially when served with a piece of jelly bread to sop up any left over broth. It's easy and inexpensive to make, only requires a handful of ingredients, and the dumplings are really light and fluffy, not the type that sink to the bottom of your stomache like a lead brick. For the recipe, just check out the back of a box of Bisquik.

My favorite meal in a bowl is my home-made chili with toppings like shredded cheese, chopped onions, jalapeno slices and a few tortilla chips! This was what we had for supper a few days ago.

Cereal is good...I love to make an ooey gooey mess with PB, chocolate, nuts and marshmallows, heated up...now that is some mmmmmm good stuff.

Missi said...

Taco Soup w/ torilla chips. More of a cold weather meal.

For a snack I love a big bowl of Lays Potato Chips. I could eat the whole bag, but try to limit myself to one bowl full.

Lexiquin said...

Who says you can't eat cookies in a bowl? I'd eat cookies any way I could! I'm not a big fan of ice cream...
Probably my favorite food in a bowl on a night like this is a good, hot & hearty, homemade stew/soup or chili/beans. When it's too hot to cook, I enjoy Kellogg's Bran Flakes or fruit with yogurt. Thanks for the giveaway.

I'm an old fan of Kellogg's Corn Flakes.

When I'm sick, it is always the first thing I want and in the middle of a dark night, I think of Corn Flakes.

I'm hopelessly hooked forever.
