6 Ways to Have More Veggies For Breakfast


If there’s one thing our doctors, personal trainers, and mothers can all agree on, it’s this: we need to eat more vegetables. And there’s no denying that it’s always smart to maximize our intake of healthy, fibre-filled and nutrient-rich veggies. But how can you get more veggies into your diet?

1. Omelets

Eggs are a great source of many different things, starting with high quality protein that can keep you feeling full throughout the morning. Eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin D, and minerals like zinc, copper, and iron.

There are many different vegetables that make great additions to omelettes, including asparagus, broccoli, onions, peppers (red, green or yellow), and mushrooms. If you’re looking to cut back on fat, buy egg whites instead of regular eggs.
