5 Ways to Sneak Veggies into breakfast




Did you know that 90% of us don’t get enough vegetables every day?



Most of us need between 2 and 4 cups a day (less if you are smaller and/or less active, and more if you are bigger and/or more active).



​But the truth is, most people don’t sit down to eat a big bowl of veggies every day. They usually end up as an afterthought in a side dish.


This is why sneaking veggies into your meals (including BREAKFAST) is such a great idea! It’s a pain- and bother-free way to get more of them into your diet.


I know this tip might fall into the category “I know this but I don’t do it very often.”


Consider this your reminder that it’s time to START! :)


I have some ideas to get you going.


5 Easy Ways to Add Veggies to Your Breakfast:


  1. Stir spinach or any other green into your eggs.

  2. Shred zucchini or carrots into overnight oats or chia pudding – or stir them into your oats while they cook (surprisingly yum!).

  3. Make a big batch of veggie hash (basically saute a bunch of veggies together) ahead of time, and when it’s time to eat, heat it up and add a poached egg or browned chicken sausages on top.

  4. Add cauliflower, kale, or beets to a smoothie.

  5. Pop a veggie quiche into the oven.

Your assignment: Sneak some veggies into your breakfast a couple of days this week.


You don’t have to overhaul your entire lifestyle to feel healthier and more energized fast.
