Ultimate Vegetable Scrambled Eggs

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day but I usually start my day with 6-8 ounces of water and a cup of coffee. About 1-2 hours later, I drink a protein shake. Then, I have “breakfast” which might be as late as 12 to 2 PM. But, I love breakfast so much that I prefer to make some eggs rather than figure out what to eat for lunch.

This recipe is one of my favorites since I get a good amount of protein and lots of veggies. Because it makes a whole plate of food, I find it keeps me satisfied for at least 2-3 hours at which time I’m ready for a snack such as an apple and peanut butter. My friend also introduced me to these Frooze Balls which I find make a great snack! I try not to eat an entire pack at once but sometimes it’s hard since they’re so yummy!

The key to this recipe is to recognize that veggies are mostly “freebies.” You can add whatever veggies you enjoy eating or what you have on hand that you like with scrambled eggs. You might need to experiment a little. My favorite is onions, peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, grape tomatoes, and avocado. Yes, I can eat all of that and it helps me lose weight if you can believe that! The veggies fill you up but are low in calories. It’s great! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

    This scrambler was excellent! Once I cut up the veggies, I was eating in no time. And, while I loved it, I didn’t feel too full or uncomfortable after eating. I was satisfied! Thanks for sharing!
