Eggs and vegetables are my all-time favorite breakfast combo. Since I’m always rushing to get out the door in the morning (but refuse to compromise with a to-go muffin), I’ve devised this simple one-pan breakfast. The veggies remind me of a potato hash, but this version packs a nutritious punch without the starchy carbs that seem to suck the energy right out of you rather than deliver it.
Eggs are a good source of protein which will keep you full until lunch (and avoid the need for a mid-morning snack), while veggies add to your daily count, offering vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates. Basil, a great source of Vitamin K and essential for blood clotting, rounds out the dish.
Eat this dish for breakfast daily and I bet you’ll feel healthier, lighter and suffer from less mid-morning cravings! Check my posts on Instagram for more egg-spiration.
