Vegetables for Breakfast

The other day, I asked if everyone had vegetables with breakfast. Salads are increasingly becoming a breakfast trend.

Full disclosure: I'm not a salad person. BUT, I am a breakfast person. So here are some great non-salad ideas for a veggie-filled breakfast.

  • EGGS:
    • Mix your veggies into an egg dish like a quiche, scrambled eggs or even just on the side. Eggs give protein (about 6g per large egg) and flavor for your dish.
    • I love to add red bell peppers, spinach and tomatoes with my egg dishes.
    • Here's a simple egg scramble recipe.
  • GRAINS:
    • Quinoa, buckwheat and oatmeal are pretty versatile with taste.  Whether you like sweet, savory or just plain, there is a recipe for you!
    • I like to add sweet potatoes, broccoli or zucchini to these dishes.
    •  breakfast hash?  Yes, please!
  • SMOOTHIES:
    • This is my favorite way to sneak in vegetables. Grab a handful and dump it into your blender. As long as you have a great base, you'll never know. I use this all the time for my kids and husband.
    • Kale, Spinach and beets are all easy to mix into your smoothies.
    • Want some extra energy? This is the smoothie for you!

Add the quality of vegetables to your breakfast.
