Many people skip over vegetables at breakfast time. However, adding in veggies at breakfast can be easy and will help you get in your 5 servings/day!
Adding in vegetables can be as easy as….
Adding them into your smoothies. And why not- fruits and juices can add a lot of extra carbs and sugars into a drink that is meant to boost your health! Instead of juice, try adding in beets, carrots, cucumber, or a healthy vegetable powder like this:
This is one of my all-time favorites. I literally wake up in the morning and can’t wait to drink it. Tangerine is my favorite flavor, you can mix a scoop with water or add it to a smoothie. Click on the image for buying details and a broader description.
Just some water and spoonful of this crystalized beet powder adds in so much flavor. There is no need for adding juice or milk. You’ll have added nutrients without all the extra calories or sugars.
Asparagus is the perfect breakfast food! It pairs wonderfully with eggs. Simply slice up some asparagus and sauté or bake. Not sure how you feel about adding in asparagus? Why not pair it with potato toes, onion, and peppers?
Veggies with Eggs. Omelet’s, frittatas, and casseroles- Oh my! Yes, adding in vegetables with eggs is quick an easy. Almost any vegetables can be mixed in the eggs: peppers, tomatoes, squash, broccoli, shredded carrots, mushrooms…The possibilities are endless. You can also add in some cheese, salsa, pico de gallo, or herbs for an extra pop of flavor.
