Another wonderful recipe idea from Emily, this time for Farmer’s Market Scrambled Eggs!
Hi again! It’s Emily from My Love for Words, and I’m excited to be back to share a delicious new breakfast with you all.
If you’re anything like me, 2014 started with a lot of resolutions… and one of mine is to be healthier. I have tried dieting and various meal plans in the past, but I’ve never been able to successfully stick to anything. I’ve always ending up feeling deprived and hungry so I eventually cave to one of my many cravings (ice cream!).
However, this year is going to be different. My husband and I have started following most of the Paleo guidelines, and I’m shocked to actually be enjoying it. I haven’t been hungry or felt deprived, and I’m feeling better overall! This breakfast is Paleo, but I’m certain you’ll enjoy it even if you aren’t following that specific plan. It’s full of lots of healthy ingredients and can be easily customized to suit your palate. Let’s go!
Ingredients (Serves 3):
- 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 an onion, diced
- 1/2 zucchini, diced
- 8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1 precooked ham steak slice, cubed
- 6 eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
- Melt the coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat. While the oil warms, chop the onion and zucchini.
- Add onion and zucchini to the pan and cook until onions are translucent. Chop ham and tomatoes.
- When the onion and zucchini mixture is almost finished, add the ham and tomatoes and cook for approximately one minute.
- While the vegetables cook, scramble the eggs, and add them to the pan. Stir frequently while the eggs cook, and remove the pan from the heat when the eggs are cooked through.
- Add salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!
This is what I came up with simply from what was in my fridge. The great thing about a dish like this is that you can add your favorite things. Chopped bacon, spinach, mushrooms, whatever you like will work.
I’d love for you to check out some of my other recipes. Paula was kind enough to let me share these Caprese Bites, which would be a great addition to a Super Bowl party, and I share some great winter recipes on my blog like these Apricot Pork Chops and Black Bean Soup.
You’re also welcome to check out my various free printables, and if would be great if we could connect on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, and Google+. Last but not least, I’d like to say a big thank you to Paula for welcoming me and allowing me to share my creations with you all. See ya next month!
