Even though I’m technically a grown-up, I sometimes still have trouble eating enough veggies every day. It’s not that I don’t like veggies (quite the opposite actually), it’s just that some days I get busy or I don’t meal-prep as well as I should. Of course, vegetables are often the first thing to fall by the wayside in favor of more convenient alternatives.
That’s why I’ve been trying to incorporate more vegetables into my morning routine. Registered dietitians know that even for adults it can be tough to eat the recommended daily amount, which is why they often suggest adding them to breakfast time. And really, it’s easy to toss a cup of spinach into an egg scramble, whip up a pot of tomatoey shakshuka, or even give a breakfast salad a try.
To help guarantee you hit your five-a-day, here are 15 delicious recipes to your regular rotation. Each packs at least two half-cup servings of vegetables, plus other healthy ingredients like eggs, grains, and healthy fats. They range from more traditional options like frittatas with summer vegetables and egg burritos with sweet potatoes, to avant-garde ideas like kale and egg bakes and harissa-roasted carrots on toast. Adulting has never been easier.
