Veggies For Breakfast

For the last six months or so, I have regularly eaten a sweet breakfast.  My absolute favorite- almond butter on toast with banana was the reason I even woke up all Winter long!
However, the warmer months are coming and I have taken on a challenge to eat veggies for breakfast.  It's not on a real blog style challenge (the kind that I tell you all about and count my offenses because that would drive me nuts) but I am on a 'try harder' mission to get some delicious veggies into my day.  I love them as is, so if anything, this will mix up my routine.
This past weekend my parents gave us some asparagus.  I love my parents- they give me food whenever I come over.  Life is good. 
After I roasted up a whole boatload of them, I saved some for my morning wrap.
 
Asparagus Wrap: Flat out wheat wrap, asparagus spears, Trader Joe's spicy hummus, and 2 slices of Swiss cheese
All wrapped up and microwaved for optimal cheese melting capabilities:
This wrap is pretty promiscuous.  I can see that asparagus showing some leg.
I enjoyed this wrap so much that I put together another one for this morning- this time a Spinach Roasted Red Pepper Wrap.
Spinach Roasted Red Pepper Wrap: Flat out wrap, hummus, roasted bell peppers, and spinach

This wrap held itself together a little bit better.  I can see myself eating this every day for the next six months.
So now it's your turn- what are you adding to your daily food party lately?  (I don't use 'diet' because diets suck).  
What kind of veggies do you eat for breakfast? I eat them all now!  Until I get bored of them.

Do you really need me to answer this question?

Realllly, a wrap for breakfast? I don't know if I could do that! I'm all about untraditional breakfasts, but I think the most untraditional I would go is adding pumpkin to my oats :) Eating a wrap would trick my body into thinking it's noon! haha, but hey, they do look AMAZING! I love Swiss cheese.

I love an asparagus and mushroom omlette!

Gabriela said...

That wrap actually looks great! I made a "quiche" last night for dinner that would actually fit into this challenge well...just a block of tofu, some nutritional yeast, and a ton of chopped veggies. Easy and delicious!

I've been eating spinach pretty much every day in some way, shape, or form.

Katie said...

lol @ your promiscuous wrap. Too funny girl. If I feel that my nutrition is lacking I add a nice big salad to my dinner.

Anne Marie said...

Hmm...I haven't eaten veggies for breakfast in a long time (unless it's in an omelet!) For some reason, I love my sweet breakfasts!

Beth @ DiningAndDishing said...

I am definitely more of a fruit than veg lover in the AM. But sometimes I will make a GM with spinach...since I can't taste it :)

Missy said...

Both of those wraps look great but I don't think I could eat them until lunch! I love my yogurt, eggs, and cottage cheese! Today I did start juicing again though! I used kale, apple, celery, cucumber, ginger, and lemon :)

Mo Diva said...

the wraps sound great and the ocd in me wants to add an egg white LOL.
And if it werent for the pee smell i would eat asparagus more but when you go potty at work and someone goes in righ tafter you they think you need to see a doc and its really embarassing!

I love savory brekkies... my favorite savory brekkie is leftover chinese food - just kidding! always an egg white fritatta with veggies and cheese! MM!.
