WRECKED EGGS WITH SPINACH, ONION, AND PEPPERS

eggs1

A long while back, I was at a restaurant/diner for breakfast, and I ordered scrambled eggs.  When the waitress gave my order to the cook, she said “wreck em”!  I love that!  So, yes, this is a simple recipe for scrambled eggs with vegetables, but I call them wrecked eggs. 🙂

This is my absolute FAVORITE breakfast, and I have it at least 3 times per week…sometimes, I will even have it for lunch or dinner too.  It’s quick and easy, full of protein and nutrition, and it’s DELICIOUS!  I’ve already discussed how passionate I am about how healthy eggs are.  I go over many of the health benefits here.  This recipe has only four ingredients (if you don’t count sea salt to taste and coconut oil for cooking), but will leave you feeling completely satisfied and full until your next meal.  Each ingredient is packed full of nutrition and the following pins explain some of the health benefits of each of these.

As you can see it’s hard to find a breakfast that parallels this one in nutrition that will completely satisfy you!  The recipe is quick and easy which is always helpful in the morning (especially if you are more of a night owl like myself)!
