All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast. ~John Gunther

Boosting your veggie intake for breakfast is a great way to hit your 5 a day. It will fill you up, enhance your vitamins and mineral intake and tastes delicious. Baked eggs are eggs baked in a cast iron pan and loaded with whatever vegetables in the fridge. I had cherry tomatoes, red peppers, cucumber and mint. I added tomatoes and red peppers and cumin to the baked eggs. I prepared side dressing of cucumber, mint and cottage cheese. Surprisingly, it complimented the baked eggs very well. Β Don’t knock it, till you try it. Β Chill out with warm water and lemon, coffee or green tea while you wait for the palpable smell to waft throughout the house.
