Nutritive Awareness - Veggies for Breakfast Recipes - by Pamela Hunter


I believe in looking at your lifestyle choices and making sense out of them.  I also believe in bringing awareness to our daily nutrition.  I call this Nutritive Awareness.   I believe we must consciously feed nourishment to our bodies in many forms.  Through observation it is rare to see people eat veggies at breakfast.  Through experience, it is a challenging shift to begin loving your veggies at breakfast.

Why should we care about veggies at breakfast?

1.     Veggies jump starts your day with nutrients – much needed vitamins and minerals – it’s a day changer!

2.     Many veggies are packed with proteins and good carbs to give you tons of energy!

3.     Veggies are brain food!

4.     You Get a head start to the many servings of veggies needed in the day for overall wellness.

 Here are a few of my favorite recipes for Veggies at Breakfast!

Veggie Egg Scramble

Onion (red or sweet)
Zuccini, or whatever you have in your fridge.
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Goat or Feta Cheese (optional)

Preparations:  Chop all the veggies accept the Spinach.  Place all but the spinach in a skillet to saute in a bit of butter until they are just soft.  Add in the Spinach and stir to let it wilt a bit.  Just when it seems to be shrinking, add in the amount of mixed eggs your desire and scramble on medium heat.  Sea Salt and Pepper to taste.
