Start your morning off right!

For those of you who don’t already know, breakfast food is my all time favorite kind of food. I would eat breakfast for every meal and never get bored :D. My favorite breakfast dishes to make always include eggs. I think eggs are fantastic because they are so versatile and can be made in so many different ways, with so many different ingredients. I want to share my go-to breakfast that I make at least 5 times a week. It’s a simple and healthy breakfast scramble that can be adjusted to include all of your favorite veggies!

When I make my breakfast scramble, I like to pack it full of fresh veggies. My favorite fillings include onions, sweet bell peppers, spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, avocados and of course, cheese. Feel free to add whatever veggies you like! The recipe below corresponds to the image above.

Timing:

  • Preparation: 5 minutes
