Veggie Breakfast Scramble

Being a Paleo family, we eat a lot of meat at our house.  Every so often, it’s nice to go without and overload on veggies instead. 

As a mother of three, it’s gratifying to watch my kids gobble down a variety of veggies before they head off to school.  In this day and age, it might be downright shocking to see an 8 year old eat spinach, mushrooms, onion and peppers.  Just wait until you see him ask for seconds.  **gasp!!

Olive oil
Sweet potato, cubed, ¼ cup per person
Onion, chopped, ¼ cup per person
Red and green peppers, chopped ¼ cup per person
Spinach, 4-5 leaves per person
Mushrooms, 1 per person
Salt & pepper
Eggs, 2-3 per person

1)     In a large frying pan, sauté sweet potato in olive oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.  Toss potatoes to brown evenly.

2)      Add remaining veggies and sauté 5 minutes more.

3)     By all means, have some fun with your food – no utensils are required here – just toss it, flip it, shake it …. Embrace your inner chef!

4)     Add eggs to veggies, salt and pepper and stir to scramble (you may use your utensil now).  Serve with a side of fruit and a robust cup of jo (jo is not recommended for the kiddos!).
A veggie breakfast scramble is a fantastic way to start your morning.  You’ll be fueled and energized to make it a great day!!
From my kitchen, to yours….. Enjoy!
