Protein Packed Scramble

As you all know, I have lost sixty some odd pounds.  In the process of losing weight, I have discovered that one of the things that is absolutely essential to curbing cravings throughout the day is a protein packed breakfast.

Short of drinking a protein shake every morning (which some mornings I do, just to save time and energy), I’ve had to come up with some creative ways to protein load my breakfast.  One of my current favorites is a protein packed scramble.   I keep veggies cut up in the fridge, which makes this delicious breakfast a snap to make.
