I eat a lot of eggs — basically, my daily breakfast of choice and has been for years. They’re loaded with nutrition and can be made in advance (hard boiled) or scrambled, fried, or poached quickly. This past week, I discovered a combo with roasted red peppers and feta and I had it for breakfast every.single.day.
If you’re looking for an egg scramble that is quick, easy, and filling, you’ll like this!
1/4c roasted peppers
1. Add peppers to a pan to heat; you may need to cut them (I just used the spatula).
2. Once they are heated and the water has cooked off, spray the cooking spray and add two eggs; scramble the eggs.
3. As the eggs are finishing, add the feta and stir to let it melt a little.
This breakfast takes less than 10 minutes to make and is delicious! I haven’t been using MFP lately because I have been trying Weight Watchers instead. This breakfast is 2 points (feta). I usually have this is with strawberries or some other fruit to round things out. It’s been a nice breakfast and is loaded with flavor.
I do not claim to be a wonderful food blogger by any means: I rarely have my phone around when food is involved, so I am always forgetting to photograph meals. When I do take pictures, they’re not particularly beautiful. I remembered to snap a few pictures as I made this breakfast scramble — it’s something I’ve been eating to fuel my body when I feel I have a big day ahead or if I’m just feeling leisurely in the morning.

I rounded out my breakfast with two kiwi and about 1/3c of blueberries.
I used MyFitnessPal to figure out the nutrition breakdown for this (including the kiwi and berries) *based on 2000kcal diet:
