Sausage & Broccoli Breakfast Hash

Breakfast matters, because YOU matter.

If you know me, you know how passionate I am about starting your day right with a healthy and healing breakfast. I’m a huge advocate for making sure my family, myself and my clients get on board with this crucial habit. I’ve met countless individuals since beginning my career as a Nutritional Therapist who skip breakfast altogether! For my regular readers, I will spare you by not going into the details of why this is something you should NOT do. Learn more about Feel Like Skipping Breakfast? Find Out Why.

You will see me say, if you’re following me on social media or subscribe to my email updates, that healthy living is all about placing easy-to-implement habits into your life that work for you and help you live to the fullest.

Easy meals with YOU in mind.

I want to take a moment to emphasize how truly easy implementing a whole foods breakfast full of delicious vegetables and quality proteins can be. If this if your first time doing something like this, then I recommend starting on a weekend morning, where you will have additional time to dedicate to cooking and eating. Once you grasp how simple this can be, then you can implement it into your daily routine or create larger batches of dishes like the hash below to enjoy all week long.

I wanted to wait until I made this recipe to comment 😀 I made this for me to have for breakfast last week. Unfortunately I think the sausage I got from TJs may have been junk because it wasn’t settling really well for me. Otherwise I loved the idea of eating broccoli for breakfast and I find more and more that I really don’t mind eating veggies for breakfast. It’s really just about preparation and mindset.
