I steam real veggies every day, plenty of them for dinner side dish. Put it up in containers. For breakfast, I cut up half a zucchini, add mushrooms, and at least a cup of steamed veggie, doesn't matter which, but I like cauliflower or brussel sprouts best. I add beef broth so I don't need to use alot of oil. Green onions, minced garlic from the jar, flaxmeal, sometimes sunflower seeds. Flavored with chipotle flavor or salsa or curry. Plop in 1/2 cup egg whites, from the container, let it cook through. Makes a nice plate of food, no starch, fills you up and gives you at least 4 servings of veggies right away. This allows me to have 2 starch servings at lunch, so I can have a real sandwich. Have had this breakfast for several years, and it's easy to order something like it when you go out to eat. I drink black coffee with this.

I love, love, love adding veggies to eggs. I usually boil two large eggs with a half cup of spinach, onions, yellow peppers, tomatoes, and boiled sweet potatoes. Top with 2tsp of light salad dressing for flavor, and there goes an awesome breakfast for less than 250 calories.

I drink green juice at night because I have more time at night to clean/ cut everything I need to put in the juicer and clean the juicer when I'm done. But I regularly eat broccoli at breakfast. I eat it with eggs or a sweet potato. I also sometimes add red peppers. I try to eat veggies at every meal!

I love all your suggestions...I'm thinking of getting the Nutribullet to get some nutritious drinks. Great if you have to have something quick or on the go.

Mmm that sounds good! My go-to veggie for breakfast is frozen spinach. I add some to a warm pan and let it thaw, then add the eggs and scramble away. It's good as is, or with spices, or (my favorite) topped with hot sauce and wrapped in a tortilla. :)

Now I'll have to try adding some other veggies!

I also like to drink green smoothies with soy milk in it. It gives me 2 veggies and 2 fruits.

A good start to the day is an egg and sauteed veggies. I keep tons of frozen veggies on hand, especially those with broccoli, cauliflour and carrots. I start with a couple of squirts of cooking spray; sautee a clove of slivered garlic; add the veggies and season with salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme .When veggies are cooked through, I add an egg and scramble it in with the veggies until the egg is cooked. I top it with a sprinkle or two of Parmesan cheese.

It is tasty, satisfying and appeases my hunger till lunch. Most of all it is under 200 calories. For 80 calories more, add 1/2 cup frozen corn to veggies to give it a slightly sweet taste.
