top 5 ways to eat vegetables at breakfast

There is something so….healthy about starting your day off with vegetables. It just feels so good.

Don’t roll your eyes, I swear it’s true!

Ideally, we would eat vegetables at every meal, not just lunch and dinner. I know that vegetables at breakfast really throw some people off, but it doesn’t have to. It can be delicious, nutritious and totally normal. :)

Here are my favorite ways to incorporate vegetables into breakfast. Try it!

Top 5 Ways to Eat Vegetables at Breakfast 

  • Eggs + Greens: I’m a big fan of eggs and greens – sauteed or raw! Try  sauteed kale or chard or fresh arugula or herb salad greens.
  • Fresh Juice or Smoothie: Vegetable juices are great (need to get out the juicer) and adding some spinach into a smoothie is an easy way to get a few servings of vegetables in.
  • Salads: They aren’t just for lunch! Try a breakfast inspired salad, like Breakfast Cobb Salad or a salad with fresh fruit and nuts.
  • Scrambled Eggs or Omelet: This is probably the way most people are most accustomed to eating vegetables in the morning. Try peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, etc in your next scramble or omelet.
  • Asian Inspiration: Brown Rice + Sauteed Vegetables + Splash of Sesame Oil & Soy Sauce.

Are you scared of vegetables in the morning or do you add them to breakfast?

    Oftentimes, I will make a smoothie with berries, almond milk, and lots of spinach! I usually have a bowl of oats on the side with some nut butter :).

    It’s funny that veggies at breakfast SOUNDS weird, but it’s really not once you think of all the ways that you can work them in. I made a killer hash this weekend for St Patty’s that had lots of veggies in it- I’m posting the recipe today or tomorrow! :)

    I always throw veggies in my eggs in the AM and I have been obssesed with green smoothies lately, mostly spinach and kale. If sweet potatoes count, I have those for leftovers all the time. I love them in pancakes and oatmeal!

    Just yesterday I had a big breakfast salad- organic mixed greens and romaine, yellow bell pepper, shallot, organic bacon, two pastured eggs sunny side up, avocado. A little olive oil and salt&pepper. YUM! It’s a great breakfast.
    Today I made a crustless quiche with spinach, mushrooms, bell pepper, zucchini, chicken sausage, and raw cheese. Delicious!
    Whenever someone hears about me eating salad for breakfast I get weird looks. It’s funny. My response: It’s all food!
    :)

    One of my favorite breakfasts is a slice of toast topped with some sauteed lemony kale and a fried egg!

    Love the breakfast Cobb salad idea; I’m getting pounds of greens and lettuces from my CSA right now and I was searching for ways to use them. Lately I’ve been making a breakfast sandwich with an herb-cheese (similar to Boursin, but homemade), tomato, shallot, shaved carrot, alfalfa sprouts, and butter lettuce on lightly toasted bread. It’s delicious, but I needed some new ideas :)
