We all know that it is important to eat enough vegetables. Still, some people find it quite difficult to achieve this 250 gram of vegetables each day! And this is understandable, even for us this can be a challenge sometimes. Therefore, we always try to spread the vegetable intake over the day, instead of only consuming this during one meal, dinner for example. This makes it way easier to consume more! For instance, this recipe already makes sure you consume 125 gram of vegetables, and this is just from one meal that can be consumed as either breakfast or lunch. Just try to implement bits of vegetables in each meal of the day, and you make it way easier for yourself. Now you don’t have to consume a big load of vegetables during dinner! See how easy it can be?
Ingredients for 2 persons:
- 2 slices of toasted whole wheat bread / crackers or anything you prefer!
- 250 g of cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 mozzarella
- 5 leaves of basil
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- A pinch of salt & pepper
Actually, this is such a simple but delicious meal! First, you rinse all the tomatoes and basil. Then, you cut the cherry tomatoes in 4 and put them in a small bowl. Drain the mozzarella and cut it in small cubes, add this to the bowl as well. For the basil, you can either cut it with a knife or how we always do it, just cut it with (of course clean) scissors. Add this also to the bowl. Lastly, add the olive oil and some pepper and salt. Now use a (wooden) spoon to stir everything well together. Divide it over 2 slices of bread/crackers and enjoy your easy peasy healthy breakfast or lunch!
– If you don’t like mozzarella, you can exchange this for grated parmesan cheese or white feta cheese.
– If you want to add more vegetables to your breakfast or lunch, then add some chopped red pepper.
