8 Easy ways to add more veggies to your breakfast

In the western diet we don’t often think of putting vegetables in our breakfasts, we are more inclined to use fruit at breakfast time.  Many other countries traditionally eat more vegetables at breakfast time.  It often comes down to what you are used to, the foods you grew up on.  So why do you want to add vegetables to your breakfast?


Vegetables are:

·      High fibre

·      Low calorie

·      High nutrient

·      Alkaline


So vegetables will help to:

·      Alkalise your diet

·      Lower inflammation

·      Improve overall health

·      Aid with healthy weight management


That’s all very well but how do you add vegetables into your breakfast without you feeling like it’s no longer like breakfast?

Here are my 8 easy ways to add more veggies to your breakfast:

1.    Smoothies/smoothie bowls – you can add spinach, kale, avocado etc

2.    Juices – these are great for hard vegetables like carrot, beetroot, cucumber etc

3.    Omelettes – throw in the kitchen sink (not literally)

4.    Scrambled veg – add spinach, tomato, onion, mushrooms etc to your scrambled egg

5.    Grilled breakfast – lean/turkey sausage, with mushroom, tomato, onion, spinach

6.    Loaded toast – my favourtie at the moment in avocado, tomato and cucumber with some rocket salad

7.    Go international – think of dishes you might have had on holidays – breakfast burrito (Mexico), shakshuka (Israel), breakfast hash (Scotland) even the breakfast grill from Ireland

8.    Veggie bread – this can be zucchini (courgette) bread, healthy carrot cake/buns, olive and sundried tomato focaccia, feta and vegetable loaf and more


Give it a go and add some veggies to your breakfast for the next week, see if it makes a difference to your day!
