Vegetables for Breakfast

vegetables for breakfast

A bowl of nutrients to kick off your day.

I know, vegetables for breakfast doesn’t sound like the most appealing thing in the morning. With 2018 in full swing, a lot of us are motivated to step up our health game. I believe a healthy lifestyle starts with the food we put into our bodies. If you have vegetables for breakfast, you’re fueling your body with nutrients and starting the day off on the right track. Green juices and smoothies are great, but sometimes you just want to chew your food, you know what I mean?

The answer: veggie cereal. When I tell people about it, they look at me like I have three heads. But once they try it, they can’t get enough. I came across the recipe years ago after searching for healthier breakfast alternatives and have been hooked ever since. The best part is you can make an entire batch to last a few days. Treat it like traditional cereal: add some almond milk, fresh fruit, a few toppings, and you’re ready to dig in.

Vegetables for Breakfast | Veggie Cereal

A bowl of nutrients to kick off your day.

Course Breakfast
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 servings
Calories 132 kcal

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raw broccoli
  • 1 /2 cup raw cauliflower
  • 2 raw apples
  • 1 carrot
  • 3-4 tbsp raw pecans

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry all produce.

  2. In a food processor, toss in pecans and pulse until the size of rice. Set aside in a bowl.

  3. Add to food processor broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Pulse to the size of rice. Add to bowl.

  4. Add apples to a food processor and lightly pulse until chopped. Be careful not to pulse too long to ensure it doesn't turn to applesauce consistency.

  5. Add all ingredients to a bowl and store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

  6. When serving, sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon and toppings of choice. We love strawberries, blueberries, bananas and extra pecans. Add almond milk or plant-based milk of choice and enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

**Try to choose a cauliflower and broccoli that are the same size, you want them to be equal amounts. I always look for the smallest ones I can find (it goes a long way). 

Be sure not to pulse ingredients too long or it will turn to mush. The size of rice is perfect!  

Only add cinnamon and fruit toppings before serving to keep it fresh.
