Low Carb Overnight Breakfast Casserole Crockpot Recipe Ingredients
This recipe is a healthy one and that means the ingredients will be better fresh. All recipes should include fresh ingredients but sometimes it’s just not necessary.
However, a healthy recipe requires all of the nutrients from the ingredients in order to be a healthy recipe. This recipe requires a lot of veggies like onions, mushrooms, spinach, carrots, asparagus, red peppers, zucchini, and tomatoes.
You can try to make sure each of these ingredients is fresh but don’t stress over it. There is also room for customization. You don’t have to add the mushrooms if you aren’t a fan. But try and swap it with something else if you decide to take something out.
For example, add eggplant if you take out the mushrooms. The goal would be to keep the nutritional value high instead of lowering it.
