Herb Scramble with Veggies


2013/01/24 by nikkiledford

Breakfast for Paleo peeps can get a little boring. Eggs, bacon. Eggs, bacon. Eggs, sausage. Eggs, bacon. You see what I mean?

There’s nothing revolutionary about this meal but I think it’s a refreshing way to shake up the everyday scrambled egg.

Herb Scramble with Veggies

2 eggs
1/2 c. sliced mushrooms
1 c. spinach
1 green onion
1 clove garlic
1/2 zucchini, chopped
1 Tbsp. coconut milk or heavy whipping cream
1/4 tsp. ground sage
sprinkle crushed red pepper
sprinkle salt

1 tsp. coconut oil, lard, butter, tallow, or bacon fat

  1. In a small skillet, sautè veggies until wilted and mushrooms are golden.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk eggs with coconut milk, sage, crushed red pepper, salt.
  3. Pour egg mixture over veggies and scramble until slightly runny. Β (Don’t overcook eggs).

    Yes I agree, sometimes my paleo breakfast routine can get really boring. I see what you’re saying. This is a good recipe, I do love mushrooms, onion and spinach. Adding cream is always awesome.

    Why can’t I overcook my eggs? I hate runny eggs. πŸ˜›

      If you have an aversion to runny eggs, than go ahead and fully cook them. However, from a culinary standpoint, the ideal way to scramble eggs leaves them a bit undercooked. πŸ™‚

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
