The Super Veggie Scramble

I have a new "go to" super breakfast for those mornings when you know you need a good jump on the day.  I love the chocolate pancake - strawberry covered waffle - cream cheese stuffed french toast mornings, but sometimes you need something that will leave you feeling, well, healthier!  This Super Veggie Scramble is quick, easy and packed full of all the good stuff your body needs!

Super Veggie Scramble
{serves 2 main courses OR 4 sides}

1 lg. broccoli crown cut into small bite sized florets
1 lg. handful of fresh spinach, stems cut off, sliced thin
2 med. carrots, grated
1 sm. onion, diced
4 eggs, scrambled
1 spoonful ground flax
Olive Oil
garlic salt
1/4-1/2 c. of cheese {grated Parmesan, feta, or your favorite!}

Begin by prepping all of your veggies and scrambling your eggs.   Heat some olive oil to a medium high temperature in a large skillet.  Saute your onion for about a minute then add the broccoli and carrot.  Saute until the broccoli begins to soften and the carrot begins to caramelize.

 Add in the spinach and garlic salt and pepper to taste.  Saute for a minute more.  Reduce your heat to a medium low temperature.  Sprinkle in your cheese and allow to begin to melt.  Fold in a spoonful of ground flax {a great source of Omega 3s and fiber!  I add it to everything!} to your scrambled eggs and pour the egg mixture over your veggies and cheese.  Gently stir to coat all of the veggies in the egg mixture.  Continue to stir until all the egg is cooked through. 

This is great served with a piece of toast or muffin and some fresh fruit!  Enjoy your Super Veggie breakfast and start your morning off right!
