Healthy Breakfast Greens Recipe

Healthy Breakfast Greens

Breakfast greens are a staple of my mornings many times each week.

Healthy breakfast ingredients

They are an excellent breakfast on their own, but you can also pair them with eggs or a couple strips of preservative-free bacon. You can also add other things to the saute, like sliced red bell peppers, shredded or roast chicken, or a splash of lemon juice. Get creative! Select your favorite dark, leafy greens and mix them up to subtly change the flavor of the dish. Some of my favorite greens to use are kale, swiss chard, mustard greens, beet tops or collards.


Delicious mushrooms

When I’m not sharing with my kids (yes, they love this recipe!), I use coconut oil and sprinkle red pepper flakes in the saute to give it a kick. Unfortunately, my son is allergic to coconut and my daughter is averse to spicy foods so I have to keep those variations to myself. If you’re a fan of a savory breakfast, give these greens a try. You’ll be surprised how they feel like comfort food in the morning.


Healthy Breakfast Greens

Sauteed greens are an excellent way to start the day on a positive note. Incorporating veggies into your morning routine provides a huge nutritional boost along with great energy to balance blood sugar, cravings and support brain health. Plus, you're ahead of the game when it comes to meeting your recommended 7-9 servings of vegetables for the day. 

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 11 minutes
Servings 2


  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 small onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp himalayan pink salt
  • 1 cup portabello mushrooms sliced
  • 1 bunch dark leafy greens chiffonade (rolled & sliced)
  • 4 tbsp roasted pumpkin seeds


  1. Prepare ingredients and place in bowls or on a cutting board for quick access.

     Warm olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat, then add onions and mushrooms. Saute 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are just starting to brown and mushrooms are soft. Add salt and stir.

    Add greens to the mixture and stir frequently, cooking just until greens are tender and bright green in color. This happens quickly, maybe even under 1 minute!

    Place sauteed ingredients on dishes to serve and sprinkle with roasted pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!

    Cool info! Interesting information over here. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.| I couldn’t refrain from commenting. I have spent some hours trying to find such infos. I will also share it with a couple of friends interested in it. I’ve just bookmarked this web. Done with the work done, I’ll watch some Russia 2018 Webcams. Thank you very much!! Regards from Russia WM!
