Southwest Egg Scramble Recipe

I decided to participate in the Whole30 program starting today. I’ve been kind of following the plan for the last few weeks, but I didn’t want to start officially until today with all of the holidays and events over the last few weeks I didn’t want to start when there were so many temptations out there to take me off the program. You can check out my Whole30 progress as I follow the program here: Whole30 Progress along with meal plans, recipes and resources.

One of my favorite lower carb breakfast recipes is this southwest egg scramble. I give you amounts in the recipe, but to be honest, I just chop and dice and throw it in the skillet most days. Pair this with a side of fresh fruit or one of my faves raw taco kraut and you have  the perfect breakfast, or lunch within about 10 minutes. Make it even easier by chopping your veggies the night before.
