My Favorite Breakfast Ever!

This morning my mother-in-law sauteed zucchini, butternut squash, and tomatoes. She also added steamed collard greens and topped it off with a dash of pepper for a yummy veggie dish! I also ate slices of avocado and ezekiel sprouted grain english muffins topped with non-dairy butter and almond butter. I have to say that surprisingly, this is my favorite breakfast dish ever!
