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?

    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!

    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 🙂

    One of my top fav breakfasts are sauteed greens (kale, beet/cauliflower/broccoli leaves) and maybe carrots or beets, and then served with an egg (from one of my hens). It just feels right starting the day with greens.
