Butternut pumpkin/squash and wilted spinach combinations are an easy way to get a healthy breakfast without breaking the bank. It is delicious with a great play of flavors. The sweet flavor of squash and the savory taste of spinach. The beautiful colors of nature represented on the plate is just beautiful.

This recipe is one of my favorites healthy breakfast ideas. It is a really good post workout meal. This breakfast recipe is an excellent source of dietary fiber and minerals like iron, potassium, vitamin a, vitamin c, and calcium. Adding avocado to the plate is a good way of having healthy fats.

This delicious recipe is also a great option if you are gluten intolerant and low-carb. The recipe is vegan and vegetarian friendly mainly because it is plant based. You can always tweak the recipe to suit your dietary needs.
