We are always looking for ways to get in our veggies - check this great recipe from Clean Eating Magazine (www.cleaneatingmag.com).  Incorporating eggs into this low-cal hash makes for a colorful, nutritionally loaded breakfast – the acorn squash has more potassium than a banana! Mix in scrambled eggs or top with a poached or fried egg.

  • 3/4 lb small new potatoes, left unpeeled
  • 1 small acorn squash, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch pieces

  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 2 cups broccoli, shredded
  • 1/3 cup each red and green bell pepper, thinly sliced
