Light, Fresh, Simple Costa Rican Scramble

A beautifully simple and deliciously light, sustaining breakfast.

herbeggThese eggs feature minced cilantro, mint, and parsley, but are great with any fresh herbs you like!

Real eggs: Check this website for information on what kind of eggs you’re buying–it’s up to you, but I try to choose the most humane eggs I can find, meaning free range, organic, antibiotic-free, veggie-fed, and no beak clipping. When I’m lucky, like today, I get fresh eggs from a friend!

Why This Combo is Great for Your Body:

Eggs (read this article to buff up on your egg-pronioa), an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, proteins and healthy fats, also happen to be slightly high in sulfur. This is only an issue when it comes to digestion (sulfur, found in foods like broccoli, cabbage and onions, can cause bloating–the last thing you need to start your day with).

However…

Herbs like Mint, Cilanto, Parsley, even Basil, Thyme, and Oregano, are not only high in valuable minerals and chlorophyll, but help aid in digestion and combat bloating (and are great for heartburn, too). These tasty little plants will freshen your breath all day, fill your body with disease-fighting nutrients, and boost the glow of your skin!

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon each: minced Cilantro, Mint, and Green Onion (bottoms) (and/or parsley, basil or any other preferred fresh herb)

real Eggs, whisked together in a bowl

1/2 teaspoon Avocado Oil (or other high-heat oil, or broth, for oil-free)

Himalayan Pink Salt (or other, whole-mineral salt) to taste

Optional:

1/2 clove minced Garlic

Directions:

  • Heat a small skillet and add oil until hot in skillet at medium temp.
  • Add whisked eggs to hot pan and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  • Add fresh all minced herbs and scramble to preferred doneness.

Serving Suggestions:

With 1 tablespoon vegan mayo, 1/4 sliced avocado, and several ripe, sliced, small tomatoes.

A substantial and lasting breakfast that feels as light as the herbs it features.

So. Good. 

I’m fully addicted.

Enjoy!
