Tired of the same old eggs for breakfast? This healthy breakfast hash is for you.
This protein and veggie breakfast healthy hash has everything you need to start your morning right. I mean who gets to say “Yes, I’ve already had a few servings of fruit, vegetables and protein” all before 10am? Not many!
I added breakfast sausage to the ground meat in this recipe to enhance the breakfast flavor. Unfortunately, since sausage and bacon don’t quite cut it as lean protein. It’s great to use as an ingredient, rather than as the protein source of the meal. Think outside of the box with breakfast ideas, it opens up so many other healthy choices!
Healthy breakfast hash is great because you can make a few servings for the week. I don’t know about you, but I don’t always love microwaving my eggs. However, I do love this hash recipe as leftovers.
I would also highly recommend getting a food processor to speed up the veggie chopping process!
Healthy Breakfast Hash Nutrition Info:
Lean Ground Meat: Whichever ground meat protein source you choose, go for a leaner option. This will offset the fat content of the meal and help you hit your protein goals. Protein will help keep you full and satisfied longer and if you work out in the morning it’s a great way to replenish those muscles.
Peppers: Peppers are a great source of vitamin C, antioxidants and fiber. Bell peppers add so much flavor, color and nutrients without many calories.
Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene, vitamin C and potassium. Regular white potatoes are a great option too, they just have different nutrition profiles.
Kale: Kale has been deemed a “superfood” by many. Kale has multiple antioxidants and nutrients that are linked to lowering cholesterol, making it an amazing veggie to add to your diet.
