Three Eggs with Veggies Breakfast

I’m starting to count macros this week. I haven’t tried this before, but I have less than 10 pounds to lose and really want to gain some muscle, especially in my arms and back. Someday I want to be able to do pull ups…

This recipe has good protein but also about 28% of my daily fat allowance. If you need less fat, substitute in some egg whites for one or two of the eggs.

Mix up the vegetables in this recipe based on what you like, what’s in season and what you have leftover from dinner.

Ingredients:

  • Avocado Oil Spray (or other non-stick, no calorie spray)
  • 3 Eggs beaten
  • 1 t. Mrs. Dash or other spices you like
  • 1 C. Mushrooms chopped
  • 2 T. Red Onions diced
  • 1 C. Power Greens
  • 6 Broccolini tops leftover from dinner

Steps:

Chop and dice all the vegetables into smallish pieces. Place a small skillet on medium heat and add a shot of non-stick cooking spray. Add the veggies that take longer to cook (mushrooms, onions, garlic, peppers, carrots etc.). Saute and stir/flip until desired doneness. For mushrooms I like to wait until some of the juice comes out and edges get a little brown. For onions, cook until they get kind of translucent but not too brown. Add the quick cooking veggies like leftovers from dinner that were already cooked, Power Greens or Spinach just until wilted. Stir the eggs quickly with the spices and add to the skillet. If you know how to lift the edges and flip to make an omelette, do that. Otherwise just stir and scramble until no raw egg remains.

I like to serve with a piece of fruit like an orange, two kiwi or a glass of pomegranate juice.
