Breakfast Ideas for Your Favorite Veggies

By Stephen R. Farris

Breakfast is a great way to start your day. Eating the right breakfast can supply you with enough energy to get you through the morning, but sometimes (due to our fast-paced schedules) we don't always take the time to eat healthy for breakfast. Instead, we opt to hit the fast-food restaurant for a high calorie, high-carb, fat loaded breakfast burrito, or breakfast biscuit on our way to work or school. Other times, we may just skip breakfast altogether, or grab one of those fancy energy drinks at the convenience store. 

However, you can fix a quick, healthy, and delicious breakfast at home that won't make you late for work or school. You can even prepare ahead of time if you prefer, and if your schedule is some kind of hectic. The best thing about these early morning meals is that you can get the nutrients you need by incorporating a few of your favorite veggies.

A Delicious Breakfast Omelet

Omelets are quick and easy to make. Just take some eggs, crack them open, and mix them up real good. Set them aside, then grab one of two (or more) of your favorite veggies from the fridge such as spinach, mushrooms, bell peppers, etc., whichever ones you desire and chop them up. After you've heated up your frying pan or skillet, pour in your egg mixture. Give it a few seconds or so and then add in some of those healthy and delicious veggies. Let them cook until the egg mixture begins to firm up a little, then fold one side over the other. After a short time, flip over your omelet, then plate it and sprinkle a dash of salt and pepper. One other thing you can add is some low-fat cheese and/or tomatoes and onions on the omelet before you do the flip. Bingo! A quick and easy breakfast that only takes maybe 10 to 15 minutes total preparation and cook time.

 Oatmeal

Oatmeal is another fast meal for anyone with a tight morning schedule. It's quick and easy to make, usually under 10 minutes. Most people add a little milk or berries in their oatmeal, but you can also liven it up by throwing in chunks of your favorite veggies as well. Try adding some mushrooms, kale or spinach, or zucchini to your morning oatmeal. Veggies will add extra nutrients, especially mushrooms, which provide protein, Vitamin D and Vitamin B12.

Morning Smoothies

Add veggies to your morning smoothies for a healthy, nutritious, energy boosting drink. You can chop and store your veggies in the fridge the night before, then blend them into your smoothie mixture the next morning. It only takes a few minutes for prep and blend.
