My patients are always asking me, “What do you mean, ‘Have vegetables for breakfast?'”
Seen Above: 1 C mixed fruit (20g carbohydrate), 1 High Fiber English muffin (25g carbohydrate), 2 Fried Eggs, 1 Tbsp Goat Cheese, Sautéed Mushrooms, Wilted Spinach, Fresh Tomatoes tossed with fresh thyme, and a handful of baby carrots.
This is what I mean.
Vegetables are probably the most important item to add to your meal if you want to be a healthy eater with a satisfied tummy and diminishing weight. They work MIRACLES! Why people don’t eat them more often is a wonder to me. I’ll probably never understand it.
My general rule of thumb: Two servings of vegetables at each meal. Including breakfast.
At first people are very skeptical. My patients have a hard time imagining how vegetables might be incorporated into breakfast meals. I think that’s because when I say “vegetable” they think “can of green beans.” Vegetables are so much more than that!
Comments I hear after my patients add vegetables for breakfast:
- Wow! Adding vegetables to my breakfast was a game changer! I feel like I’m eating a real meal.
- Yeah, it was really easy. I’m not sure why I haven’t done it before.
- I love my vegetables for breakfast.
- It makes my plate look so happy in the morning. AND it hardly takes any effort.
I’m telling you. Vegetables for breakfast. It’s the new fad.
I’m setting the trend. Well… not just me. It’s technically me and all my patients, friends, readers that are following suit.
Now that you’ve heard the message… go forth and multiply. WE NEED MORE FOLLOWERS!!!! ;)
