Kicking off your morning with a dose of vegetables is an easy way to automatically feel like you're on the right track to eating well that day. Spinach and tomatoes and peppers aren't going to fill you up on their own, however. They need to join forces with protein, whole grains, or both in order to fill you up and send you out the door strong. Here are seven recipes that do just that.
