I don’t know about you but it is always easy to revert to overly sweet, although delicious, breakfasts. The list of pastries goes on and on, from pancakes to muffins, coffee cake to waffles. Dessert for breakfast is easy and popular. Let’s face it, a pan”cake” is really cake covered in syrup.
It’s also easy to get to dinner time and realize that there is no way that the final meal of the day can fill in the missing fruit and veg servings that got missed because, well, muffins. I mean come on! It doesn’t get much better than huckleberry muffins… or even better cinnamon swirl pancakes… Hold on. We are talking about veggies. Focus honey!
So how do you get a veggie loaded breakfast and have it be more versatile than adding a side of hash browns to your eggs? Well let me tell you, we have gathered our very favorite ways to load up on veggies in the am. Not only does it start you off right but you will notice a difference in your alertness and energy throughout the day.
