Faster Scrambled Eggs & Veggies Recipe

quick and easy scrambled eggs with veggies

Healthy and fast breakfast or lunch idea!

When I decided to do a TERRAfit challenge, I knew I needed to find some new fast and filling healthy lunch ideas. Otherwise, the afternoons were going to be rough! I love this quick dish as a healthy breakfast or lunch. I usually like to have my healthy protein shake for breakfast, so these scrambled eggs have become a new go-to for me as an easy lunch.

There’s some good protein going on and a full serving of veggies too. I often have a hard time getting enough veggies, so this is a nice and easy to way to incorporate them.

ingredients for quick scrambled eggs and veggies

You can choose nearly any veggies you want to, but I like using spinach, tomato, and bell peppers. Use what you’ve got! If you want a spicy kick in there, you could use some jalapeno too.

I just chop it all up, then add about a cup’s worth of the veggies to the beaten eggs. Store any extra veggies in the fridge for another meal or for more scrambled eggs the next day or two. The veggies should keep well for a few days, so prep several servings at one time to save yourself more time later on.

Throw it all in a microwave-safe bowl and cook it in the microwave for a minute or two, until the eggs are set. Love how fast and easy it is! Of course, if you prefer not to use a microwave, you can pour it all into a 10-inch skillet and cook it on the stove top. Either way it is easy and delicious.

I don’t feel like I’m on a “diet” when I get to eat this for lunch. I feel satisfied and ready to go. It is pretty simple, but it works!

    This looks fabulous. I find myself craving sugar right around 1 or 2 if I don’t do an awesome lunch. Seeing your prefect diced peppers reminds me of the time i helped you in the kitchen and you couldn’t believe how quickly and haphazardly I chopped something. Ha.
