Winter Blend Veggies

I try to eat veggies at all three meals. Generally, breakfast would consist of green beans, eggs and bacon or chicken apple sausage. That started back when I did my first Whole30 … and it was a habit that just stayed with me.

Breakfast Meal Prep
*gosh, have I not shared this yet??*

Now that it’s winter time though, green beans are not really in season and quite honestly, frozen green beans cook up too mushy for my taste. I prefer they have some crunch still.

So lately, I’ve been grabbing frozen veggies from Aldi and Walmart …

$1.09 Aldi
 
$5.88 each Walmart
Walmart also carries a mix of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots for $5.88 … and these are large bags. Hubby is not a fan of the carrots and I never was either until recently … 
Anyways. Some people think I’m weird because I eat these veggies at breakfast. But I know that is my BEST time to get veggies into my day! And I have a super easy way for you to make these in the morning without a whole lot of fuss, promise!
Grab yourself a skillet. 
 
Trader Joe’s Ghee $3.99
Most grocery stores carry this for $8.99 
(look in the oil and vinegar section)
Turn that heat to medium and add some ghee, avocado oil or what not. Not a lot, just a little bit to coat the bottom of pan. Personally, I use ghee as I think ghee is made for sauteing veggies!
Add the veggies, season with a little salt/pepper/garlic powder/onion powder mixture.
Don’t worry … a post on this is coming soon!

Add a touch of water and put a lid on it. Keep the veggies over medium heat and check on them in about 5 minutes or so, giving a quick stir.
Once they are heated through and softened to your liking, go ahead and dish them up! I like mine firm but hubby likes his mushy so we have to split them up a little!
*If you’d like a little char to them, take the lid off and crank the heat to HIGH and let them cook for a minute or so, tossing them after the first minute. Keep an eye on them as they will overcook if you aren’t careful!
Enjoy! 
Looking
forward to sharing with some of these
