Cauliflower Breakfast Hash

Looking to switch up breakfast from waffles & eggs? (or maybe that is just me?! LOL!) When you start your day with savory nutrient-dense foods you are less likely to crave sugar throughout the day. Starting your day with veggies and complex carbs (plus some good fats) will set you up for making better food decisions the rest of the day.

In this recipe, I used cauliflower, asparagus, onion, chickpeas, spinach & purple potatoes (they just look pretty and are packed with nutrients – that’s why they are a deep purple! Dressed with lots of flavor from seasonings and fresh basil. I cooked everything in vegetable broth and whoa! So flavorful! You don’t need anything else to top it with. Well maybe a little avocado for some good fats, that’s always a good idea.

Make a batch on Sunday so you are set for breakfast for a few days. Just add to a bowl and heat up. See how you feel the rest of the day. Do you find yourself craving sugary snacks less when you start your day with nutrient-dense savory foods instead of waffles and syrup? Yes, we can still enjoy our waffles and syrup but getting in veggies first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day!

Oh and feel free to saw with other veggies you like – make it your own! Peppers, tomatoes, green beans…
