How About Vegetables For Breakfast?

Read my medical disclaimer before you proceed:

My breakfast this morning was two carrots, a large onion, and a large white potato all prepared in a steamer with some butter and salt added. Of course I had my morning coffee too… with a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses stirred in.

Why vegetables for breakfast?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it should be nutritious, energizing, and satisfying.

While traditionally, breakfast foods like eggs, bacon, and pancakes have been the go-to choices for many, there are actually plenty of delicious and nutritious ways to incorporate vegetables into your breakfast.

Vegetables are a great way to start your day off right. They provide essential vitamins and minerals, help to keep you full until lunch, and can be incredibly tasty. Whether you’re looking for a savory breakfast or something sweet, there are a variety of ways to incorporate vegetables into your morning meal.

For a savory breakfast, consider whipping up a vegetable omelet. Start by sautéing onions, peppers, mushrooms, and spinach in a pan. Once cooked, add them to beaten eggs and cook until the omelet is set. Serve with some toast or a piece of fruit and you’ve got a nutritious and delicious breakfast.

If you’re looking for something sweet, try baking a veggie-packed frittata. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Place a variety of vegetables, such as broccoli, asparagus, and peppers, into a greased baking dish. Pour beaten eggs over the veggies, sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 25 minutes or until the eggs are set. Serve with some toast or a piece of fruit for a well-rounded breakfast.

Vegetables can also be added to smoothies for a quick and easy breakfast. Try adding spinach, carrots, or beets for a nutrient-packed smoothie. You can also add some nuts, seeds, or nut butter for an added boost of protein.

Vegetables don’t have to be boring or tasteless. Incorporate them into your breakfast to start your day off right with a nutritious and delicious meal. I often have nothing but steamed, baked or boiled vegetables for my own breakfasts.
