Your recipe looks delish.

My question is this:

What do you use as the non-starchy veggie to balance the other half to
three-quarters of your breakfast? I tried mwl, but I'm too much of a starchy
veggie freak. I LOVE winter squash, corn, etc, and I had a hard time finding
a veggie I could stomach at breakfast.

And before you think I'm being a typical American who only likes sweets at
breakfast, I prefer traditional breakfast food for dinner. =-)
