Belly-Friendly Breakfast Greens


I (Kelly) used to think it was weird to eat cooked greens for breakfast. What did I have instead? Cereal. Cold, mushy, bleh. I was hungry again way before lunch, plus the cold dampened my digestive fire, leaving me feeling bloated. (Same thing with a cold greens smoothie.) These greens pump you full of fiber and micronutrients to keep you energized and feeling full longer, and the fact that they're cooked keeps your belly fires burning. 

1 C. broccoli, chopped
1/2 C. zucchini, sliced
1 C. kale, chopped
1 T. coconut oil
optional seasonings

Heat oil over medium in a saucepan. Add broccoli and a splash of water and cover pan to let broccoli steam for 3-4 minutes. Stir in zucchini and replace cover, let cook another 3-4 minutes. Stir in kale and cover again, cooking until kale is lightly steamed.

Remove from heat and stir in desired seasonings, or eat plain (the coconut oil will give some flavor). We like to add paprika, tumeric, and sometimes a little garlic powder. Or salt, pepper, and nooch (nutritional yeast). You can also add Mala's Savory Lentils or some crumbled sprouted tofu for more protein.
