This Healthy Egg Scramble is always my “I’m feeling like eggs today” go-to breakfast.
I like it because I know I am getting in at least 20g of protein first thing in the morning and it keeps me satisfied longer than maybe just a bowl of cereal.
Plus, regular ol’ scrambled eggs can be such a bore.
Quinoa is a healthy and simple scrambled egg stir-in that turns your breakfast into a satisfying, high-protein meal.
Add in fresh herbs (I love basil), any chopped veggies you’d like and some cheese for the perfect hint of saltiness.
Healthy egg scrambles like this make breakfast feel special and it’s so easy to make!
Ingredients you will need for this healthy egg scramble:
Very basic ingredients are needed for this scramble:
Quinoa: I cook 1 cup of quinoa according to package directions. This way, I can have enough quinoa for the week to make more scrambles.
Eggs: I add 2 eggs to my scrambles but it’s up to you and how hungry you are. I usually make 4 eggs for my hubby!
Spinach: Chopped, fresh spinach is best. However, you can add really any vegetable you prefer: kale, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, asparagus, etc.
Cheese: Mozzarella, white cheddar and Parmesan are all delicious options.
Garlic: I love garlic so I add about 2-3 cloves per serving! You can omit if you don’t prefer it in your eggs.
Basic seasonings: salt & pepper! You can add in basil, dill, chives or thyme too!
