A Great Fruit and Veggie Breakfast!

Who knew veggies at breakfast could be SO yummy?!

Yesterday, I wanted to get a good start to my day with the Eat More Fruits and Veggies Challenge, so I whipped out the broccoli at breakfast!

I sauted onion, red and green peppers and broccoli in olive oil for a few minutes…then scrambled eggs into the veggies with salt.


 Then I peeled myself an orange…and WOW!! 

I could not stop saying..”MMMmmm!!” while I was eating it! It had wonderful flavor…and the sweet, juicy orange with it was so refreshing!


My husband and I both LOVED this dish…and the kids might have liked it…if we would have saved them some! We finished the entire skillet before they even had a chance!

Here’s the recipe:

Veggie Egg ScrambleYum

3 T olive oil
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
2 T chopped onion
3/4 cup broccoli
5 eggs
sea salt

Saute the peppers, onions and broccoli in olive oil for 3-5 minutes until veggies are tender crisp. Beat eggs in a bowl. Pour eggs into skillet. Salt to taste. Scramble eggs with the veggies until the eggs are done. Serve with fresh fruit.

Give this dish a try sometime for breakfast (or dinner!).

    Interesting! The orange part of your breakfast sounded good. (I think this fruit/veggie thing is gonna be a lot harder than the no sugar thing was!) Ah, who am I kidding? The only kind of beans I had today were jelly beans (they don’t count right??). So, not only did I have a bunch of sugar, but I did NOT eat my fruits and veggies. Can you move to NV and cook for me please??

    sounds tasty…last night for supper I made some broccoli w/peppers and onions – I wish I had saved some to make the scrabbled eggs dish. I need to remember that for next time.

    I think I may have got in the 7 servings of fruit/veggies for myself yesterday. :)

    Wow that looks amazing. If it were up to me my family would be vegetarians but hubby and two of the kiddoss are meat eaters. I am going to have to try to try this one day next week.

    Here is my veggie/fruit tally for yesterday:


    This is going to be tough Although…I was out of the home a lot yesterday…and its so much easier when you are home…or when you have prepared well for what is coming in your day. :) Which I didn’t do well yesterday. I’ll be better today.

    Hello, I have a question for you. In your recipe you used olive oil. Now I know you use coconut oil as well and just wondering if you have heard that you are not supposed to use olive oil for cooking unless the temp is very low? Something about it turning into a trans fat with higher heat? I read this on a few sites now and thought I was doing SO well with using olive oil. UGH!!! I JUST started using the coconut oil, and have only tried it in one dish so far. But anyways, so far,so good!

    In regard to Jennifer’s comment…

    I believe that the olive oil information about only using olive oil at low temps is a myth. Go here to read some GREAT information about it:

    Only when a vegetable oil is heated at high temps for HOURS and has hydrogen added to it and all kinds of other freaky thing done to make it into margarine does it turn into a trans fat.

    When you use olive oil on your stove at home…you are NOT doing that.

    Cooking with olive oil, even at high temps is fine. :)

    I was wondering how many people this recipe serves… It sounds really good!

    Well, at my house it serves only about two or three of us. But we’re big eaters!
