For the past few weeks I’ve been eating the same breakfast every day: a simple egg white scramble. I like to mix things up a bit, but I can honestly say I’m not getting tired of it at all. Bonus: as far as I can tell it’s the healthiest thing ever.
- Your choice of peppers, diced. I go with red, green, poblano, sometimes jalapeño.
- diced onion
- a handful baby spinach leaves
- egg whites
- salt & pepper to taste
- goat cheese crumbles
Instructions: it’s a scramble… scramble everything! Ok, ok sauté the peppers and onions in olive oil for about 5 minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper. Chop up the baby spinach leaves and add them, cooking for about 5 minutes or until they are wilted. Add as much egg whites as you like, I go with about 3 eggs worth of egg whites. Sprinkle with a few goat cheese crumbles and Sriracha (optional).
