What Are Some Ways to Eat More Greens with Breakfast?

Q: I recently started working with a nutritionist, and at our first official meeting this week, her number-one recommendation for me is to increase my consumption of greens (leafy greens in addition to broccoli, cauliflower, etc.). She advised that I get a serving (good-sized handful) at each meal.

I'm struggling a bit with ideas for how to get greens at breakfast. I enjoy sauteed spinach with eggs, but I don't want to do that every day. Do you have any suggestions? I'm especially interested in items that don't take much prep time or could be made ahead of time. Thanks so much!

Editor: One of our favorite ways to slip some greens into our breakfasts is to add them to smoothies. Just a handful of shredded spinach or kale adds tons of nutrition, and surprisingly, doesn't make the smoothie taste like a salad!

Readers, what other ways do you like having greens for breakfast?
