I love love love fruit, I could eat fruit all day. Vegetables is a different story. Don’t get me wrong, I do love vegetables, I just find them harder to work into my meals than fruit, and I don’t think I’m alone in that. I love working veggies into my breakfast, just to start the day off on the right foot.
This week I came up with three different recipes to add vegetables to your morning meal. Bonus: They’re all super easy.
- Breakfast Smoothie with Spinach: Smoothies are a great way to add vegetables to your breakfast. You can add spinach and literally not taste it at all.
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup pineapple
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
about 1 cup of ice
Add everything to a blender and blend until smooth. If you prefer a thicker smoothie, add more ice.
2. Veggie Scramble- sauteeing veggies in a scramble is another one of my favorite ways to add vegetables to my morning meal. I use peppers and onions often, but you could also do spinach, or whatever veggies you love most.
1/2 green bell pepper
1/4 yellow onion
1 Tbsp mixed cheese
1 Tbsp salsa
Chop peppers and onions and add to a greased frying pan. Sauté until the vegetables are starting to brown. Add your scrambled eggs and mix and cook until completely cooked through. Top with cheese and salsa if desired.
3. Spinach and Tomato Egg Muffins- These are another recipe that you can really customize to your favorite veggies. I made these with spinach, tomato, and onion, but I also think it would be really tasty with asparagus or peppers.
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup shredded cheese of choice (I used a Mexican mix)
1 clove garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350F. Add all 6 eggs to a large bowl and whisk together. Add all other ingredients and mix until combined. Grease a muffin tin and pour egg mixture into the tin. I used regular sized muffin tins, but these would probably also work well as mini muffins. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the muffins are cooked all the way through. Makes 6-8 muffins.
I hope you enjoyed this video! Let me know if you all have any other ways to add veggies to your breakfast.
