Vegetables for Breakfast

When I decided to have vegetables at every meal, I was most worried about breakfast. I wasn’t sure what you could do besides eggs with some kind of vegetable tossed in or V-8. Those options are okay, except I don’t really like V-8 (although I found a low sodium, organic version at Whole Foods and it wasn’t terrible), and while I like eggs, I don’t want to eat them ever y day or even every other day. I was happy to find that there are other options. I loved the pumpkin muffin I had. I loved even more that the first ingredient was actual, real pumpkin. I think a bran, carrot muffin might be a good idea—both with a small glass of some kind of veggie juice. When I’ve gone to brunch breakfast often comes with a green salad, but I don’t usually associate breakfast with salad. Still, it’s an option. Clearly not a ton of variety here, but a little more than I was expecting. Plus, it got me thinking about options since I really didn’t just want V-8 and eggs all week. Thinking about our food is always a good thing. I still need to think some more because I’d really like to come up with some more ideas. There have to be more out there. Have any?

    just dawned on me and never thought of having it for breakfast: bruschetta: diced tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, spinach with some basil (any or all) and no cooking – just the toast the bread and drizzle with olive oil. I’m sure you could add other fixin’s. What about a burrito with beans, onion, tomato, avacado? again, whatever you come up with is good…..just adds variety.

    A burrito always sounds more like lunch than breakfast to me. Bruschetta might be an option.
