Veggies, veggies, veggies. It can be hard to get enough of them especially at breakfast, but lunch and dinner too, if you’re a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy/gal. Hard, but not impossible. Today we’re going to help you out with some satisfying swaps.

For Breakfast or Brunch

Give pancakes a savory twist by adding summer squash. When we tried it in our test kitchen we got the feedback that it tasted a bit like a biscuit but overall, pretty darn good! You can also dress them with all sorts of healthy toppings. Here’s a quick video we made.

Protip: they rise a decent bit making them pretty thick, so you can also try cutting them down the center like you would an English muffin and eating it like a sandwich with your toppings inside!

For Lunch

Salad gets a bad rap for being “rabbit food” when it can actually be quite satisfying! You can get those Italian flavors going with tomato, basil, and mozzarella, for example.

If tomatoes aren’t your thing, check out this guide. A bean-based salad is a great way to sneak finely chopped veggies in, and might be a better fit for you!

For Dinner
