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.
Protein Packed Scramble
- 3/4 cup Fat Free Egg Beaters
- 1/8 cup onion slices I used Vidalia
- 1/8 cup broccoli florettes
- 1/8 cup bell pepper slices
- 5 cherry tomatoes halved
- Non-stick cooking spray
Spray saute pan with non-stick cooking spray and add vegetables over medium heat.
Saute vegetables until onions are slightly tender.
Add Fat Free Egg Beaters and cook through.

Mmmm, that looks really delicious!
Oh, thanks for the recipe. I’m trying to lose weight as well and looking for ways to up my protein intake.
Checking back on this, bought protein powder and I bet I could find a way to put it in this.
I love putting green vegetables in my omelettes.
I try to get enough protein each day, but I really do need to get better at that!
I need to share this with my hubby. He is on a protein rich low carb eating plan.
I love veggies. This looks wonderful.
