Turnip, Asparagus & Mushroom Hash

Can you honestly say that you get enough vegetables?  If you eat a vegetable at dinner, even if it’s a wide variety…that’s not enough.  You say you love vegetables and you can name off all the ones that you enjoy…but do you really eat them enough?  There’s a strong chance that this is not the case.  In order to get enough of them in it helps to eat them at breakfast as well as snacking and other meals.  I used to be against eating vegetables in the morning; I don’t know what it was but they just didn’t appeal to me that early.  I was up for eggs, up for fruit, up for healthy doses of fat…but veggies in the morning just didn’t sit well with me.  Then I became a grown up, and realized that sometimes what you want isn’t always good for you.  Buck up, and eat vegetables in the morning.  They’re delicious with eggs.  You can scramble ’em in or make an omelet.  Whatever you prefer.  Here’s a quick idea for you that I made this morning.  Realize that you can use whatever veggies you have on hand here — that’s why I made this because I was trying to get rid of stuff.  I do believe that if you top anything with a fried egg it will taste good.  That is actual fact.
