Veggie Scramble

I'm attempting to get my family to eat a little healthier.  My kids like healthy food (and so does the hubby), but they really, really like not-so-healthy food.  I think they would be happy for the rest of their lives if I let them live off of canned ravioli, frozen pizza (yuck!), and sugary cereal.  Oh, and lets not forget about Ramen noodle.  Might as well throw in some Dr Pepper and chips for the hubby.  Yep.  That would make them some happy campers!  Luckily they have me to throw in some healthy stuff a few times a day.  I always cringe when I go out of town and the kids tell me all the things Daddy let them have to eat.  I remember asking that sweet hubby of mine to grab and can of veggies for dinner.  He brought me pork and beans. :)

I loved this Veggie scramble.  The kids and hubby liked it as well, but weren't too sure about the broccoli in it.  I think I'll try mushrooms next time.  And there will definitely be a next time.

1 cup broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
2/3 cup onion, diced
2/3 cup red pepper, diced
6 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil (I used coconut oil)
1 avocado, diced (optional)
Fresh basil, chopped (optional)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add veggies and cook, stirring often, until tender-crisp.  Crack eggs into a small bowl.  Add salt and whisk.  Add to veggies and cook until cooked through, stirring often.  Serve topped with avocado and fresh basil, if desired.

  1. I would love this, my daughter would substitute tofu for the eggs, but I'm going to pass it on to her. XOXO
