Yes, you already know you really should get protein at every meal including breakfast; but this also applies to veggies, too. Veggies are powerhouses of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, fiber, and water.
So, you really can't go wrong by adding them into every single meal of the day, and that includes breakfast!
The Very Veggie Omlette
1 teaspoon coconut oil
¼ cup zucchini
¼ cup sliced mushrooms
¼ cup diced peppers
¼ cup cherry tomatoes
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp turmeric
Add coconut oil to a frying pan and melt on low-medium heat (cast-iron pans are preferred).
In the meantime grab a bowl and beat the egg(s) with your vegetables of choice and the spices.
Tilt pan to ensure the bottom is covered with the melted oil. Pour egg mixture into pan and lightly fry the eggs without stirring.
When the bottom is lightly done flip over on one side and cook until white is no longer runny.
Serve it with my Caffeine-Free Chai Latte & Enjoy!
Tip: You don't have to stick with the veggies I've listed here. Experiment for yourself! Substitute grated, sliced, or diced portions of your favorite vegetables, any time. Try grated carrots, chopped broccoli or diced tomato.
