How To Add Veggies To Your Breakie

Starting your day off in the right way is important for ensuring you have the most productive and positive day ahead. We all know, like them or not, when we load up on veggies, we feel better, look better and get more done. So, why don’t we eat veggies at the start of the day? Here’s how to add veggies to your breakie.

Just by adding a handful of veggies to your breakfast first thing in the morning can help you towards your recommended five-a-day. Not to mention the boost of nutrients and energy kick it will give you too!  The key is to make it colourful!

Eggs and veggies go well together, giving you protein, fewer calories than standard cereal breakies or toast laden with jams or chocolate, or sausage sarnies.

1. Why not try finely chopping a handful of spinach and chuck it into some scrambled eggs. You could even chop up a bell pepper or some carrot for an added Beta Carotene boost.

2. Hardboil your eggs then slices them up along with some tomato and some fresh basil leaves, and a pinch of salt. Have it alone – boiled eggs really fill you up – or on a slice of wholemeal or rye bread.  Yum.

3.  Do a quick sauté or dry fry some chopped onions, some chilli, florets of broccoli, shred some potato and add some spinach or any other veggie you have in the fridge. Season with salt, garlic, and other seasonings of choice. Break an egg on top and cover your pan until your egg has cooked properly but let the yolk cover the veggies. Yum yum.
