Easy Egg Scramble With Vegetables
Let’s not overcomplicate getting a serving of veggies at breakfast. It’s easy! If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that vegetables have amazing super nutrition powers and most of us are not eating enough, so why not try an easy egg scramble with vegetables? It can be a quick weekday option if you prep ahead.
Using up all the leftover veggies in the fridge can be so satisfying and it also inspires new creations. I also appreciate added texture in scrambles. AND what about trying different cheeses, herbs and meats in eggs? Eggs can be so versatile and nutrient packed! I used to get tired of them because I did the same old scrambled eggs. Don’t be that person!
My Top Tips for Getting More Vegetables at Breakfast:
- Pre cut and dice veggies in mass amounts and freeze them in a ziploc so you don’t have to do it every morning
- Add in leftover veggies from the night before
- Change it up! Try different veggies, salsas, lean proteins, complex carbs
- By precut fresh or frozen veggies if you’d rather not chop and dice
- Use spices, sauces, herbs
