With fall quickly approaching, I found some butternut squash at the grocery store (YAY!), and decided to make this delicious breakfast hash with it. I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate more veggies into my breakfasts, and this dish does a perfect job of it! I got the idea for it from the following pin.
As usual, I changed up pretty much everything since I don’t eat white potatoes, and I wanted gobs of veggies in it, so the result is an incredibly healthy, tasty, and hearty breakfast, that will start your day off right! Because of all the veggies and healthy ingredients in this, some of its health benefits include the following.
- excellent for eye health
- packed with protein to keep you satiated until lunchtime
- good for lowering blood pressure
- high in antioxidants
- cancer prevention
- blood cleansing
- provides energy
Yeah, I’ll take that to start my day! Not to mention, the fact that I get all these benefits just from eating something that makes my tastebuds SO happy!
