Vegetables for Breakfast – aka vfb – is about transforming the way you eat, one vegetable at a time. Eating vegetables for breakfast can CHANGE YOUR relationship with food because it changes the way you absorb, digest and metabolize your meal.
For one year, from June 19, 2013 until June 19, 2014 I posted the vegetable dish I ate – and fed my family – every morning, along with the recipe. I showed you what I ate for breakfast for 365 days wherever I ate: in a restaurant, hotel, airplane or whole foods store.
Since June 19, 2014, I have been posting (mostly) monthly, including the whole meal, in addition to the vegetables. I changed the format because many readers asked me what I served with the vegetables. My answer: a whole grain dish and often a plant protein (like nuts, seeds, beans or a bean product, and, occasionally, a small portion of fish).
I am a mother of two, a nourishment educator, counselor and writer guiding women, children, and families on improving their health and well-being through making informed diet and lifestyle choices. My passions are cooking for my family and teaching food-awareness, food science and cooking to children and adults from 2 to 98 years old. I teach in schools, community centers and privately.
Before eating vegetables for breakfast changed my life, I was an editor on Style.com, Glamour, Seventeen, Parents, Departures, Redbook and Your Prom. My articles have appeared in magazines and newspapers including Eating Well, Good Housekeeping, The New York Times, Travel and Leisure, Yoga Journal, and The Wine Spectator.
I invite you to EAT vegetables for breakfast. VARY the vegetables, and try to CHOOSE seasonal, locally grown, organic vegetables whenever possible. VARY the way they’re cooked and the way they’re served. CHEW them well. NOTICE the difference in how you feel.
